As a player, I would like to extend my congratulations and thanks to all
the staff at Windsor Gardens for a job very well done.
Once again, this tournament lived up to its excellent reputation as a highly competitive and keenly contested meeting of some of the better, and older, players of indoor-cricket in Australia. Amongst the usual quota of torn muscles and broken bones, the camaraderie and skills once again shone through.
Friendships formed between players from all States must surely be the backbone of this tournament, and I urge all senior players of this great game to give serious consideration to joining us next year.
And to ALL players who participated (yes, even the Victorians ;), my thanks and congratulations.....and we'll see you all again in '99.
