And on Day Three I and the other nearly 4,000 in attendance witnessed Australian cricket history: Ellyse Perry unbeaten for 213. This test – my first – has been memorable enough already, but I’ll carry the memory of witnessing Perry’s monumental accomplishment for the rest of my life. No photo of the moment itself – I wanted to live it properly.
Day Two and we have ourselves a match. C’mon Aussie, C’mon.
Yesterday I enjoyed Day One of my first ever test match and it’s a memory I’ll carry for the rest of my life. I’m headed out to North Sydney Oval for Day Two today. Hoping to see some quick wickets and then a bunch of runs from the Southern Stars.
Working on an essay about my recent excursion through the American West that saw me visit four national parks / monuments in four days. Filling my Sunday with nostalgia, in other words.
