Ben on cricket

There’s a bit of a sports theme running here at the moment folks. Been talking to my brother Ben, who’s also a cricket lover, about the present difficulties of the WACA and he had this comment:

The problem for the WACA is that they have an unused resource during winter. They tried to secure the Rugby Union franchise but were unsuccessful and in truth the ground is not well suited to football. It would be better if they used the ground for cricket in winter too. Our winters are dry enough to allow this.

Run a novelty competition or promote women’s cricket or do celebrity cricket matches like pro-am golf tournaments. Your strength is that you are a fine facility for cricket. Just be good at that and use your ground to promote the sport all year round.
