Our girls miss out on the 'G' for the Boxing Day Test

Moonee Valley cricketers Clare Ardern and Tien Ha had been due to represent our club on the MCG on Day 4 of the Boxing Day Test.

However, due to the early demise of the Aussies, they missed out on their big chance.

Clare, the captain of our women's team, and Tien, a past captain and team administrator, were to compete against representives of seven other clubs in a 400 metre dash and a sprint during the tea break. However, the match was finished before then and the crowd had all gone home.

Both Clare (at far right) and Tien have played in the men's teams at Moonee Valley as well as with our women's team, and are more than capable as cricketers.

If they won the Club Cricket Challenge, Clare and Tien were going to win $1000 for Moonee Valley plus a bat autographed by the Australian squad for the Vodaphone Ashes Series. However, Cricket Victoria will try to reschedule the challenge for a Twenty20 match or one-day game at the MCG.

We wanted our supporters at the MCG for Day 4 of the Test to cheer on Clare and Tien at the tea break. However, hopefully they'll still get their chance to perform on one of the great arenas of world sport.
