Kyushu Team Tour of Osaka
Robert Gayst writes:
The Kyushu team will be making a tour to Osaka. The last
time we went there was in June 1998, exactly two years ago where the honours
were shared 1 win each.
The Kyushu and Osaka teams have had a fine tradition
toghether since their first game back in October 1996 and have managed
to organise games against each other at least once a year.Games have always
been played in a competitive but friendly atmosphere.
The Osaka team visited Fukuoka last July with the first
game being washed out. The second game was a very tight affair with Fukuoka
just getting the verdict by half a dozen runs.No doubt the Bulldogs in
Osaka will be waiting with sharp and shiny teeth for our arrival next month.We`re
looking forward to a great battle.
Six games have been played between the two teams since
1996 with Osaka holding a 4-2 lead.
Games schedule: June 10th and 11th.

into it with her husband George.I hope you will welcome them into the cricket
