Pink Gins & Googlies: Tour Match Sydney – Cranford old girls v Sheep Station XI

Following the adventure with the Crown Kookaburra of Crime Cranford Old Girls take to SCG to play a hoary handed set of women from NSW Sheep Stations.

The Australians win the toss (again!) with rip roaring confidence anchored by Irene Roberts scoring 67 make 211 runs to frustrate the visitors.

After a splendid tea the Cranford girls take to the field but disaster! A hat trick by Chapman in the third over despatches Gregson, Flashard and Devonshire for only 2 runs scored. Hope appears in Patrica Rebecca Harvey which as wickets fall stays in the centre scoring speedily with confidence making 102 not out before rain comes we’re despite her efforts the English as 167-7 and things weren’t looking good. Both teams retire to a hostelry for cricket talk and drinks.
