Thoughts on Vets cricket: O/40’s cricket has made it possible to reconnect with past team mates and rivals. It’s been so much fun to play at a decent competitive level. Then to have the opportunity to represent your Province & Country at this stage is awesome. Hopefully some international stars will be up for the challenge once Vets cricket continues to grow and attracts more interest.
