Little kangas assure the future of cricket

AGAINST the backdrop of news that the Leongatha and District Cricket Association is losing two teams in B Grade Division Two, the gathering of five primary schools to play cricket in Leongatha on Friday predicts a bright future for the sport.
Grade 3 and 4 students from Leongatha, Loch, Inverloch Kongwak, St Laurence O’Toole and Fish Creek primary schools got together at Leongatha Primary School for a Kanga 8 cricket carnival.
Leongatha’s Rob Wood from Cricket Victoria, organised the event, run by parents, teachers and student helpers from Leongatha Primary School and Leongatha Secondary College.
Special guests included Leongatha Town Cricket Club players Amalia Ratnaike and Madura Weerasinghe, who helped teach the students the rules of the game and some of the cricketing skills they would need.
The students enjoyed their matches, which were a particular form of cricket called Kanga 8 or T20 Blast.
