Seniors Cricket Australia National Championships - Hobart - Game 2

Tuesday 17 November and members of the Victoria Metro team set off for the short journey to the University of Tasmania cricket ground at Sandy Bay. Victoria Metro played Queensland.
Victoria Metro batted first and made 168 runs which was not enough against the Queensland side who passed the score with a few overs to go.
Although in the city, this was another ground with a picturesque background.
At the bottom of the sports grounds is the marina of the Derwent Sailing Squadron.

I spent the morning exploring parts of Hobart and did not arrive at the university until after lunch. I did arrive in time to watch Robin bowl and to watch Graham Yallop take a catch from Robin's bowling.

Robin bowled 8 overs, 2 maidens, 1 wicket for 20 runs.
In the evening, those of us who had toured with the Australian Over 60s Tour of England in June met for dinner at the Duke of Wales Hotel at Battery Point. It was a great opportunity to catch up again.
