First cricket match
Cricket season started this week. Once again the most fantastic my dad took the responsibility upon himself and he is the main coach and organizer for the kiddies cricket (ages 5 – 9)
I help as well however taking into consideration that the only cricket I have ever played is action cricket, I might do more harm than good lol No seriously it’s all in the spirit of fun.
The interesting thing is that it is mostly moms who are willing to coach! Actually come to think of it, most of the mom’s aren’t even willing. I have begged asked the moms who stand there doing nothing anyway, to just help us out. Just to keep the kid’s attention focused. Make sure they don’t start their own game on the side 🙂 But they will not. Point blank say no. (Oh but then they stand and judge so harshly)
Anyway. We had our first game today. They played so well. It’s just so adorable to watch. My dad was amazing. I admire his commitment to my kids (as I do my mom’s who is probably their biggest supporter)
The boys loved it. It’s such a gentleman’s sport and I’m glad that the other coaches played it like that as well. Helping our kids and us helping theirs.
And the best of all!!?? Both the boys got a wicket!!!
