A couple of photos from my first month on the job. You can click them to make them bigger.
There’s no doubt the Basin Reserve is one of NZ’s loveliest sports grounds of any code. I was only there for day one of the test, but it was full and it was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed finally meeting Paul from the Beige Brigade and catching up with Graeme and friends. Looking forward to coming back.
This was my view from the media box. For a cricket / sports writing geek, it was quite a thrill to be in there with guys I’d been reading for years from here and the UK and seeing how it all worked.
The main reason I took this photo was so I test my ‘boundary’ accreditation. Ahem.
There were definitely moments when I was turning up to go to work at Eden Park when I was all “I can’t believe I’m turning up to work at Eden Park!?!?!”
My view of the end of day five. It was *quite* a day.
There’s a little more about the new thing on the NBR.
