Pictures of ‘Tons of Runs’ Book Launch by Paul Daley including launch of the Indigenous Heritage River Walk and Pigeon Ponds vs Edenhope Cricket Match at Johnny Mullagh Oval, Harrow, October 29, 2011.
‘Tons of Runs’ is a remarkable research and publishing achievement that documents centuries from Australians in all forms of competitive cricket from the 1850’s until 2007/8. It includes photos, essays, articles and cricketers’ narrations with a heavy emphasis upon grass roots participation.
Link to Marcus Curnow’s Facebook Gallery is here. His maiden 100 from 2003/4 appears on pg. 346!
The Credo Parkies commenced their Reclink Australia Twenty20 season for the Clem Briggs Jnr Memorial Trophy at Lilydale yesterday. Outer East Trailblazers made 168 off their 20 overs with Gavin the best of the bowlers with 2/23. Alan made a quickfire 17 with the bat creating a solid foundation before Credo Parkies crashed to be bowled out for 50.
Great feature on Dateline SBS last night by Yaarra Bou Melhem of the Compton Cricket Club’s Australian Cricket Tour. Some good pics of the Mullagh’s, Urban Seed’s Laneway Cricket and Australian Cricket Society in the photos section.
