Lord’s Cricket Match

On 10th May, some of our Year 9 and 10 cricket enthusiasts went on a trip to Lord’s Cricket Ground. They were met by the army who assigned one soldier to every school present to be an escort and premises guide. The students went to the indoor Astro, where a magnificent trophy stood and where countless cricket heroes have completed their training. They played various ball games that helped them to warm up, develop movement skills, hand-eye coordination, throwing and batting skills. They then went to the beautiful pavilion to watch the women’s MCC team play the Armed Forces team. After lunch, the Navy and Army played, with the Navy winning the toss and deciding to bowl. We were able to get a glimpse into the strategy and organisation of how the Navy planned the powerplay. Unfortunately, we were not able to see the match through before having to return, but the weather provided for a very enjoyable experience
