Yesterday saw the inaugural Big Clash cricket contest taken out by the media owners, who romped home against the agency boys in perfect weather conditions at Sydney Uni oval.
However, the cricket was somewhat secondary to the main aim of the day, which was to raise cash for UN LTD. With both agencies and owners pitching in the event raised more than $25,000 – all of which will go directly towards UN LTD’s mission to UNdo youth disadvantage.
The media owners, led by captain Chris Freel of Fairfax, posted 135 from their allotted 20 overs and while the agencies did complete their 20 overs, they could only post 89 in response for the loss of eight wickets.
