In 1874 at the Sandhurst Easter Fair, (Bendigo, Victoria) two teams of women cricketers assembled to play a cricket match in front of a rather large and enthusiastic crowd. It was a charity match raising funds for the Bendigo hospital and asylum. Bowl the Maidens Over: Our First Women Cricketers tells the story of these first competitive women’s cricket matches. The book follows the women players – and the members of the Rae family, pivotal in the establishment and organisation of the matches – from the first advertisement in the paper to the media storm that ensued post-game, linking to a present-day connection to an Australian sportswoman.
Bowl the Maidens Over: Our First Women Cricketers is a factual account of the first Australian women’s cricket matches commencing in 1874. Foreword by Dr Megan Ponsford.
These whites are the best whites! It doesn't seem to matter how dirty they get, they always wash well and they are so soft! The female cut is also a great fit. I highly recommend these whites!
Girls said they noticed a big difference in the cut/shape too. One said it was the first pair of cricket pants that actually fit her properly
The Navy pants look fantastic! Not to mention also practical
My daughter stated "I'm still super stoked with the navy pants too! They are such good fit and look really smart."
very comfortable pair of pants.
