    Fill the Basin

    Charity match for the Christchurch earthquake scheduled for this Sunday at the Basin reserve. Looks like a pretty awesome event, and they're giving away a team spot on either team to the highest bidder on trade me as well as a bid for someone to face an over from Shane Warne.

    Canterbury Team Auction
    Wellington Team Auction
    Over Against Warne Auction


    The Teams:


    Wellington Legends XI: Martin Crowe (captain), Andrew Jones, Bruce Edgar, Chris Nevin, Ewen Chatfield, Gavin Larsen, Jason Wells, Jonathan Millmow, Matthew Bell, Richard Petrie, Roger Twose, Tana Umaga.

    Canterbury Invitation XI: Stephen Fleming (captain), Nathan Astle, Geoff Allott, Mark Ellis, Mark Greatbatch, Sir Richard Hadlee, Rod Latham, Craig McMillan, Dion Nash, Adam Parore, Justin Vaughan, Shane Warne.

    Russell Crowe is set to coach the Canterbury team and Sir Ian McKellan is the match referee. Awesome amount of effort seems to be going into this event, hoping there'll be a massive turn out.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Going to try and head along, although I have to work on Sunday, so not sure what time I'll get away.

    Sounds like a great idea, sure it'll be a success. Wonder what Tana bowls.

    Got my tickets already. Thinking of some abusive banner I can unfurl at Jonathan Millmow. Might just be a picture of my old avatar.

    This is a great idea. Any idea if it's going to be televised?

    Thought this was a thread about the Murray Darling Basin for a second. Was confused as to why Athlai was starting it.

    Hope if that's the case, Fox Sports pick it up as well seeing as Warne is in there.

    Am hopeful this'll be televised and that theres a huge crowd at the Basin on Sunday.
