A night out at the Cricket

I went to the 20/20 Cricket at the Gabba last night.
I've never been to a cricket match before, so we thought the 20/20 would be a good test. I love sport, so of course loved the cricket. It's just the goings on that were a little different.
Having been to many a Lions game, it was very different.
Footy crowds are a LOT tamer than Cricket crowds.
There's plenty of drunken yahoos at the cricket, who, I'm sure barely watch any of it. Some young guys near us got a stern talking to by police and were like timid little mice by the end of it...good to see.
When you take your 5yr old, it's not what you want them to hear!
Zac loved it...I think he loved the atmosphere the most. Lots of music, cheering and excitement with a 20/20 game.
We saw a few catches right near us, as well as some 6's so that was exciting!

Apart from the wait for a bus(to and from the Gabba), being overcharged for dinner and my Pepsi exploding on was a good night!! LOL

Last night they had a send off for Matthew Hayden, who retired yesterday. The crowd gave him a standing ovation, which was really nice. He was quite teary chatting to the Commentators.
A great career comes to an end, while others are just beginning, with David Warner.

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx
