Friday 29 April 2011 | Published in Regional


Raemaru Park in Arorangi has been confirmed as the venue for this Saturdays Anzac Day Battle of the Tasman cricket match starting at 1pm.

The match will be between arch rivals the Kiwis and Aussies with the Kiwis winning the first Anzac match last year.

All players need to be at the Raemaru Park at 12.30pm.

The game itself is expected to start at 1.15pm after formalities including the singing of the Australian and New Zealand National Anthems.

The planned haka is sure to get the Kiwis blood boiling for the match which will be a 28-over game.

Batters will play in pairs and face 4 overs as a pair and all batting is done from one end.

Bowlers can only bowl 3 overs and no short pitched (bouncers) are permitted.

All players must wear shoes and enthusiasm is definitely encouraged.
