Your thoughts on Vets Cricket – My cricket career was cut short due to a severe car crash when I was 23. Vets Cricket has allowed me to play cricket and represent my province and country, which I thought would never happen. I have met and shared the field with some passionate cricketers who amplify the true spirit of the game! Vets cricket has made this all possible and the happiest people are my mom and dad who gets to watch play cricket again!
