Boxing Day Test

This year was our first Cricket Boxing Day Test at the MCG as a family – the match was Australia versus the West Indies.

As far as Boxing Day tests go the day was a bit of a fizzer. It was delayed an hour with rain and then the West Indies bowling was some of the worst seen. Apart from the first half hour of Warner hitting a series of fours the rest of the day was just a slow run fest for Australia – only 3 wickets for the day.

Really the highlight was watching drunk supporters being evicted by the police, especially once boredom had fully set in for the evening session after 5pm.  The latest trend seems to be the “beer snake” where supporters collect as many used plastic beer cups as they can and stack them all together to make a beer snake.  Some of these spanned 6 to 8 people before exploding into a mess of cups and beer dregs over everyone.
