EIGHT players from the Strathfieldsaye Cricket Club’s Milo In2 Cricket Program have graced the hallowed turf of the MCG.

The juniors from the 7-8 age group were part of the day three lunch activities during the Boxing Day Test between Australia and Pakistan.

“It was an exciting day to experience not only Test cricket being played, but to head out onto the MCG to particpate in some Milo Cricket drills in front of 25,000 spectators was certainly a highlight… they haven’t stopped talking about it since,” Jets’ junior co-ordinator Brent Yates said.

“The club was honoured to be acknowledged by Cricket Australia for the Milo In2Cricket program we are running at Strathfieldsaye.”
