Young cricketers to grace the MCG turf during Ashes Test

EMERGING young VRI Delacombe, Smythesdale and Maryborough cricketers will experience the highlight of their short cricketing careers when they represent their respective clubs in a Milo in2Cricket on-field demonstration at the MCG during the Boxing Day Test.

The representatives will join fellow Milo in2Cricket participants from around Victoria practising their skills during the lunch break of the fourth Commonwealth Bank Ashes Test between Australia and England.

VRI Delacombe participants will take part in the Boxing Day on-field demonstration tomorrow during the match's second day of play.

Maryborough'sfemale members will feature on day three and Smythesdale's juniors will take part on the fourth day.

The program is an exciting way for children aged five to 10 to learn new skills, make new friends and stay fit and healthy.

Participants are involved in a structured program that ranges between six and 12 weeks, which provides them with the opportunity to develop cricket, physical and social skills as well as sportsmanship.

Last season there were over 1400 Milo in2Cricket clubs and centres, with overall participation reaching more than 160,000.
