Congratulations To Canterbury

Many of you know that Affilorama is based in Christchurch (NZ) and that Mark is a proud Cantabrian. What you may not know is that Mark loves his cricket and plays the game himself.

One of the best Cricket Captains in the game and also a proud Cantabrian, Stephen Flemming organised a special game as a fundraiser for Christchurch and it was played here in Wellington. The two teams; the Canterbury Invitation XI and the Wellington Legends XI, was made up of cricketers, rugby and league players, as well as stars from the big screen including Russel Crowe and Sir Ian McKellum. The big surprise for the Canterbury Invitational XI came in the form of, arguably, the best spin bowler ever in Australia and, probably, the world; Shane Warne.

The game raised over half a million dollars for Christchurch. It is great to see this kind of support. There was also a Rugby League game in Auckland last week between Australia and New Zealand that brought many out of retirement across both sides of the Tasman, some who hadn't played for over twenty years.

Even though this is a fundraiser there are bragging rights and although the game was close; Canterbury beat Wellington by ten runs, so congratulations to Canterbury and a big THANK YOU to all those who contributed.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful new John. I am not a cricket fan and I do not know these teams but I am happy to see everyone pitching in to help re-build Christchurch.

Cheers to everyone! =)

Yeah I'm not a cricket fan by any stretch of the imagination but it was good seeing John Key hit Warnie for a boundary adding another $100k to the total. (I guess Warnie must have been distracted by his cell phone or something ;o)
