Some very excited youngsters (and big kids) were recently treated to an afternoon of backyard cricket and a BBQ with Black Caps Tom Latham and Matt Henry at the McLaren family farm in Mid-Canterbury. Their awesome experience was part of an auction prize won at the 2019 Māia Feast.
Tom and Matt generously gave up their afternoon to mix and mingle with the locals and to play a bit of competitive BYC. A makeshift cricket pitch was set up in the sheep paddock, which had been mown into an oval and had a hard, unforgiving surface.
It was a hot summer afternoon that the kids won't forget - as Kiwi as it gets!Back to
