Day 1 of the 4 day pink ball test

The very first cricket test as well as rugby test in South Africa were played at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth. If I'm right, the first cricket test in South Africa after readmission was also played in Port Elizabeth. Today PE is making history again. Not just did the first pink ball day night test in South Africa start in PE today, it's also the first official 4 day test in the world. And I'm here enjoying the Proteas' batting display along with Miggie, my cricket playing daughter.

  1. Quite a big field.

    The only cricket pitch I know of here is on the property at Rideau Hall, home of our governor general.
