Your thoughts on Vets Cricket:

Vets cricket has provided an avenue for cricketers who once believed their playing days were behind them to re-engage in competitive cricket. It offers them a unique opportunity not only to represent their province but also their country. This platform allows individuals to revive cherished old friendships and forge new ones.

Personally, my aspiration since becoming a parent is to someday step onto the cricket field alongside my son. Veterans cricket has enabled me to maintain that cherished dream by reintroducing me to the sport I love so much.
