Howzat!

If you have no idea what the title of this entry is about, then… eh… welcome to Cricket! 🙂

Howzat” is short for “How was that?”, a shout a player has to use to appeal with an umpire in Cricket for a decision on a not-so-obvious situation.

Why I write about that? Well, just because I love that sport. I started loving it during my first Australia visit in 2003, I’m playing myself now for a while in a great team with great people in Düsseldorf, the DSC Blackcaps and – and that’s the real reason (jippie!) – I got tickets for the Tri-Series game between Australia and India to take place on August 23rd at VRA Cricket Club in Amstelveen.

Folks, you might not understand that, but that’s one of the most interesting (no – it’s the most interesting) Cricket event in continental Europe this year! I’m so much looking forward to that day 😉

the thing about Cricket (and being an Australian, I’d know) is that it can be so unpredictable. Yeah, the aussie team goes well but a many a game has been lost through bad luck, etc. And then there’s the weather (esp if you’re playing in either England or Melbourne) – you think you’re on a series win and then the game gets washed out.

Cricket – it’s a funny old game!

PS: did you know that the first international test series against England was an Australian Aborigional (black) team in 1868?
