The last couple of weeks here in Napier people have been getting into the cricket. Napier's McLean park is one of 10 proper cricket grounds in New Zealand. It is a sports ground of International standards and 3 of the games have been (or are going to be) played here (the last one is on Sunday).
There have been related events happening like a autograph signing at the Soundshell. Where there was a huge wicket and balls people would push to try to get the bail off the stump with the balls.

|As security was TIGHT and I couldnt afford a ticket I took this photo from the road side on a day that the park was holding a game.|
