Support us in the United We Stand T20 Cricket on Australia Day

Calvin and Warnie will be slapping on the pads this Australia Day to play in the United We Stand Twenty20 Cricket match at Cox Oval, Yarra Bend Park, Fairfield at 10am.

Our preseason Dream Team study will go on hold as we make the trek over from Tassie to take part in this awesome cause raising money for those affected by the Queensland and Victorian floods.

Should be an awesome day. Filled with beers, live music and dodgy cricketers.

We will be taking along the DT TALK camera to get plenty of footage for our next episode. So come along and be a part of our street talk segment and give us some advice for the 2011 DT season.

Player Profiles:

Name: Calvin
Highest score: 85 vs Ulverstone High School Grade 9 in 1994.
Best figures: 2/22 … same day.
Calvin has only played in 4 cricket matches in his short but promising career. Recently Calvin filled in for Beauty Point Cricket Club scoring a quick fire 47 not out off 27 balls, including 6 sixes. He was asked to come back the next week only to disappoint with a duck and was delisted. Calvin loves the short form of the game as he doesn’t have the attention span for 50 over cricket. He does hold the record along with Tit-ed for scoring 70 off 24 balls in Indoor Cricket. Calvin is looking forward to not getting another duck and yorking people on the second bounce.

Name: Warnie
Highest score: 37 not out vs St Helens B Grade in 1999.
Best figures: 5/12 off 8 overs vs Branxholm, Semi-Final 2000.
Warnie by name and Warnie by nature. He started his cricket career at the age of 12 and played for 10 years for the Bridport Cricket Club winning 6 premierships. His career was cut short because he couldn’t be stuffed standing around all day in the cricket field in the summer on a Saturday when there were plenty of beers to drink. In 2010, his brother called him up to fill in for his team and after 8 years in retirement, showed he hadn’t lost a thing bowling his leg breaks and taking 5 wickets in a man of the match effort. He did say not to publish that is for 5/58 off 8 overs with the majority of the wickets caught on the fence.

Hope to see a heap of people there!

  • sorry cant come working that day and my pays getting donated to the qld floods. Besides i live in Darwin.

    but, who the hells helping out with the vic floods flew from melb to Darwin the other day and you could see the flood waters for about 45 mins over vic.

  • We can’t wait for this! Will be fun as!

    Calvin and I might have a net session tomorrow to get ourselves in some sort of form. Would be pretty shit to fly to Melbourne for the day just for a duck! Haha.

  • Sorry boys, can’t come, since i’m only 13 years old. Have fun anyway, and it’s for a good cause. You guys live down in Tasmania?

    • Yep, Launceston to be exact!

      Tell your parents to take you there! Will be a great day for the family!

      • Sorry, mate. My parents aren’t into that type of stuff (old fashioned Lebanese parents). Still should be a good day for you guys. Hopefully you raise some money!

  • So if its warnie by name and warnie by nature, does that mean the dawg is given it to Liz Hurley in btwn writing up deck of DT posts??? World exclusive here people, possibly the biggest dt talk story since the nicnat saga.

    Btw boys where is chop atm?

    • Haha, I wish! I probably drunken text as bad as the real Warnie does tho!

      Chop is hibernating… we are going to try and wake him for the 2nd episode!

      • You sure chop hasn’t tried writing an autobiography which would reveal his idenity ala the sitg :P

  • while you guys are in vic will you be going to any of the training sessions of the vic clubs?

    • Unfortunately we are flying in and out on the same day. Would be nice to catch some training or intra-club games and get an interview or two. But we will have Hawks down here next week and hopefully get some footage (interview and intra-club game) for the third preseason episode!

  • Have fun guys but I’m in Perth at the moment and we’ll be going to an event called the Skyshow

  • Heard your mate on SEN last night.
    What a wonderful idea, good luck tomorrow all the best.
    I only live around the corner so i might give you guys a tap on the shoulder to say gday.
    Don’t knock me out! lol

  • How did you to go?
    I got to the ground at 4:30 as i was working all afternoon but you blokes had left.
    Hope it was a great success!

    • I think they made close to $15K. So an awesome effort.

      Calvin was very solid all round. Did his job. I on the other had did a great job with the ball – 5/33, but failed miserably with the bat and lost us the game.
