Day 2

20 12 2007

The boys returned from their nets around quarter past six. The reception they got in the forecourt as they stepped off the bus must be one of the reasons they enjoy touring overseas.

It was a grand total of two.

One was me, passing through en route to Flinders Street Station. Neither of us yelled ‘Sachin..Sachin’ or rushed them to liberate shoulders from sockets.

 Evidently all the kit had been left at the Junction oval, as they stepped off with just their bats. Even these bats were pristine. Not a single mark on them. One imagines they were going to continue knocking them in. If so one wonders what the other patrons would say to the sound of bat mallets on willow in concert after hours.
