Go, Black Caps!

Back the Black CapsA HUGE day ahead for New Zealand, as the Black Caps take on South Africa in Auckland in the first semi-final of the 2015 Cricket World Cup:  after a stunning performance against the West Indies in Wellington just 3 days ago, the country is ready for more of the same 🙂

It’s been raining in Auckland this morning, but the forecast is for showers to clear by the time the game starts at 2.00pm – the last thing we want is a stop-start affair which may result in a shortened match with the dreaded Duckworth-Lewis system coming into play, so I’m crossing my fingers that this doesn’t happen!  I’ve arranged to have the afternoon off work so I can come home and watch the game on TV – let’s be honest, I wouldn’t be doing any work if I was at work anyway!

So, once more into the breach, Black Caps, you’ve got the country with you all the way and we’re all dreaming big:  go get ’em, boys!

    • What an amazing game!! Several times I thought we weren’t going to pull it off, but the boys came through in the end – and to finish it with a 6 again, as we did against Australia, was just the icing on the cake! 🙂

    • It’s just a shame we have to be supporting different sides, Jill! 🙂 I’m hoping for a great match played in good weather and a friendly atmosphere, lots of runs, some great catches, great bowling … too much to ask?? 🙂
