Here at WCL we don’t LIKE cricket, WE LOVE IT! And with all the exciting action happening in the ICC Cricket World Cup (especially here in Wellington) what’s not to love?
Here are SIX resources to help you get padded up for this awesome event.
Cricket smart is a fun interactive website which takes a uniquely Kiwi look at Cricket. Everything from the rules of the game, to a look at the game all over the world!
Cricinfo is a one stop cricket shop. Stats, scores analysis, Cricinfo has it all.
Want to know when the Black Caps are next on the pitch. Check out this full list of games so you never have to miss a single delivery.
The first game of international cricket was in 1844 (that’s over ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY years ago!!) so there’s always more to learn about this awesome game. Check out our online library catalogue for cricket fiction or non-fiction or just bowl on into your local library and ask one of our library staff, we’re always keen to help you OUT!
Wellington has gone cricket crazy, with events running the whole length of the world cup. Even if you’re not a cricket fan (I hear some people aren’t) there’s heaps of awesome opportunities to get out and enjoy the Summer!
6. Stick Sports
After all that reading I bet you’re just itching to get out to the crease. Stick Cricket is a fun way to play the game without the risk of sunburn. See how many runs you can get in an over! (I hit a 36 once, ONCE)
