The Cricket Match

 Looking back at the history of the game of cricket which has its origins in England, spanning from the 16th Century.
 To this day it is played professionally in most of the Commonwealth Nations and it is such a fun and exciting game to watch.
First grand Cricket Match played on Hampton Court Green

Striped Cricket and boating blazers,  have always been a bit of an obsession for me and evokes a timeless and vintage look

On Sunday was the final game of the Cricket World Cup... our Black Caps took to the field playing against the Australian team, and we watched from the sofa.
We were proud to see the boys had made it this far and had our fingers crossed.
The Australian team were too good and stepped up and delivered.
Congratulations and well done Australia.

Wishing you a happy week

  5. :-( Sorry your team did not winn- but maybe better luck next time.
    I`m not much of a sports interested woman, so not watching anything sport at all- but I understand that others are extreamly interested and feeling so tense and exited when watching a game.
    Dearest, I wish you a lovely Easter, and send you warm hugs, from also cold Denmark!

  8. Cricket is one of those games that I have never got to grips with, I think it is because I don't concentrate for long enough! I have to cheer for the Aussies though! xx

  9. I don't really understand cricket, but I do like striped blazers :)

  15. I'm sorry your team didn't win. I went to Lords cricket ground for a conference last summer. It was so interesting learning all about the history of the game and looking at the pitch where so many victories have occurred. Sarah x
