World XI leads Yeppoon Backyard Cricket series
AFTER a welcome circle to Poongabba where the players received their shirts and caps for the upcoming six matches, the Yeppoon Backyard Cricket Series commenced with the toss won by The World XI.
The Aussies were sent in to bat and after the first innings there was only one run in it.
A sausage sanga and one of Stacky's cupcakes seemed to refuel the Australians.
They finished their second dig with a handy 50-run lead, after a few lusty blows were hit out of the ground.
The player comfort level soon played a factor and reached an uncomfortable peak with relief only coming when the heavens opened up.
The game went on under stormy, trying conditions, with the World XI unable to cope in the swamp-like conditions.
One-nil to the Aussies with their captain, Rothy, winning Legend of the Game.
Thanks went to umpire Paul and scorer Jeff.
The group also thanked everyone who dug deep for the two chosen charities, Redkite and McGrath Foundation, and to all of the local sponsors and XXXX Gold.
