Sydney Uni was privileged to host a warm-up match for the Maasai Cricket Warriors on Tuesday evening for their current tour of Australia, supported by The Primary Club.
The match against Sydney Uni was a fun affair played during twilight with the colourful outfits and smiles of the Kenyan tribesmen shining brighter than the lights it was played under.
The Maasai Cricket Warriors have been involved in The Primary Club's Marathon Cricket event being held at the SCG yesterday and today, with further matches to be held in Bowral as well as here in Sydney.
The Primary Club are hoping to raise funds to support the development of the Maasai Warriors Cricket Program.
Most of the Sydney Uni team was comprised of members from the Elite Athlete or Talented Athlete Programs, and enjoyed the opportunity to meet and compete with a group from such a different cultural background.
Not that it mattered, but for the record, Sydney Uni won the fixture 203 to 123. The experience alone for the boys as far more valuable than the runs scored, and we know it will be a memory that sticks with them for life.
