Jrod: Bloggers prepare for non-virtual Ashes combat

June 26th, 2009 by Jrod in England, The Ashes

The moment you have been waiting for is here, Australia are in the country, and England are preparing themselves for the most important event in cricket.

The Bloggers Ashes, The Village Cricketer’s All Star XI Vs The Cricket With Balls Code of Conduct XI.

Writer against writer, unwashed person vs snakebite drinker, cricketers up against Poms.

Oh how grand this shall be.

The match is in aid of that wonderful charity Everyman, who help all men keep their balls, what cricketer would want to deny men of this.

The details of this momentous moment in sport are: Monday 29th June 2009, 3pm start, Barnes Cricket Club, Lonsdale Road, London SW13 9QL

If you need more than a battle of the Ashes to whet your appetite, there will also be a BBQ and many famous cricket writers to annoy, plus Ed Craig editor of the world’s favourite bookazine ‘the story of the Ashes’.

To donate money for this game, go here.

If you are an Australian who is free to play in this game, we are still short of players, so contact me at [email protected].

But get down there people, it is just like the real Ashes, but with fatter people, who can come up with more creative excuses.

Jrod is an Australian cricket blogger. His site Cricketwithballs.com won last July’s Best of Blogs in TWC
