Cricket in Cape Town

The MEI team is now in Cape Town, ready for next week's Flotation '11.

We had tickets for today's 4th day of the test match at nearby Newlands, between South Africa and Australia, which ended bizarrely yesterday after just over 2 days play.

So this morning I consoled myself by walking across the road from the Vineyard Hotel to the Claremont Oval, to watch a match between two local Western Cape sides.

Although not Newlands, the view of the mountain was just as magnificent, and the standard of cricket was, of course, much higher than that which the Australian test side can provide.
