Whacking with the willow


I find cricket boring but I quite like the idea of English village cricket. A small crowd sitting in the sun on deckchairs, politely clapping when a run or two is scored, but never booing or being loud or obnoxious.

In Melbourne we have Junction Oval at St Kilda Junction, which is very nice. But no-where in Australia is there a cricket ground with such a beautiful name in such a beautiful location.

Hobart's Bellerive Oval.

  1. Every summer I have to put up with some degree of cricket watching. It is boring as batshit to me (excuse the french and the bad pun).

    If I could watch it from one of those boats in the picture maybe things would improve dramatically. Gorgeous.
