Manila Sixes 2023
Friday's rekindling of friendships and reminiscences of past tours were now long past, time to get down to the nitty gritty of competition. The first fine went to Tank, who after organising some delightful transport to get us there in style, failed to bring the 'music box' and thus we had to sit in silence for the whole day. Cracker was apoplectic as his superior 'waterproof music centre' had been thoroughly rebuffed by our Manila local and had therefore remained in Shangers.Three games to attend, three sides to assemble from ten available tourists, sorry, make that nine, team skipper Skid Row failed to make the bus and captained remotely from the hotel all morning.It was felt that our best chance of a victory would be in the first game, but to be honest, after the night before, how we felt would not be the best barometer for decision making. Looking resplendent in inspired Birdy designed tour shirts, 6 individually selected Bashers took to the field in hopes of at least nabbing the 'spirit of cricket' trophy. The notable playing moments can be summarised as follows...

Lumberjack Leisure Vs Pudong 7 August 2012
A glorious morning for cricket as a few ‘bag in hole’ hangovers were on their way to the Camel.
Lumberjack – Leisure Vs Pudong Game 1.
Lumberjack – Leisure Vs Pudong
March 22, 2014 at Wellington College
A lovely sunny day greeted the leisure players as they left their homes for the Camel to catch the Mini bus to Wellington. After squeezing the gear and players onto the bus a fairly non eventful trip (the esky buried under mounds of gear) we arrived with an hour 15 minutes prior to the arranged start time (note to captains for next time!) we took in our MCG sized field complete with boundary rope and settled into some catching and dropping practice on the dewey grass.
