Cricket at Newlands...

I hadn't seen the South African national cricket team live at a stadium since January 2011. I was thus very excited to be able to watch the Proteas face Pakistan in a T-20 (Twenty-20) International cricket match here in Cape Town. My Dad and I, along with my friend Fritz, went and watched the game on Friday, November 22nd. Although South Africa narrowly lost the match, it was still a good evening's sporting entertainment!

Teams line up for the national anthems. SA on the left, Pakistan on the right.

Cricket at night has an awesome atmosphere!
