Here is my entry for ‘cricket related things in unsual places’. The item in question is Shane Warne’s hat and the unusual place is ‘on my head’.

Clearly - CLEARLY - Shane Warne's hat

I’m a primary school teacher and took my class to Gloucestershire CCC for the day. We had a tour of the ground during which the chap who was taking us around (can’t remember his name, but for the purposes of this we’ll call him Brian) brought out a load of kit he’d been given by various players over the years when touring teams had come to Bristol. He then let all the kids try the kit on. One of the Indian children in my class was very pleased to wear Tendulkar’s pads.

Now whilst I really should have been the responsible adult and let the kids enjoy the moment, I couldn’t stop myself from joining in and quickly put Warne’s old floppy hat on my head and took a quick pic. So quick in fact that I didn’t think to make sure I had the Aussie badge in view, so you’ll just have to take my word for it I’m afraid.

6 Appeals

  1. I’m intrigued as to why they have a portrait of that dead princess, on the walls of a cricket ground?! What has she got to do with Gloucestershireshireshireshire CCCC

  2. It’s in one of the hospitality suites at the ground. Named after Princess Diana. Can’t remember why though.

  3. Love the camera angle – presumably being shot by hopping and squeaking 10 year old “Sir! Sir ! smile Sir!”

  4. Apparantly the Education Centre was built with financial help from the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.

    How, er, interesting

  5. Good to see Price has enough free time at work to google this to find out.

  6. A smidge of Photoshop would remove that red eye, Dan. Trust me it works and trust me your story would seem more convincing for the lack of red eye.

    Never trust a fellow with red eyes.
