    My 7 yo grandson Flynn is in his second season of cricket. They play modified rules where everyone bowls 2 overs and a batting pair face 4 overs. His club is short of players in the Under-10s so he is playing up a grade. His library book at the moment is Ricky Ponting's latest. He lives for his cricket and I captured some of his style today.

    Nice pics. I particularly like the batting one. He shows good balance and yes, name noted for future. BTW, did you happen to catch the rugby score earlier today. OK I'll leave it at that. This is an MFT forum after all!

    Thanks folks - John the 100-300 is slated for Dec-Jan delivery at Amazon so should see some of the cricket season without cropping.
