Pavilion Presentaion: Kaipaki Oval, 6.00pm This Friday, 16th of May 2014
Kaipaki will build a new pavilion in readiness for the Cricket World Cup in February 2015. Although the Kaipaki Nation have not yet received an official invite from the ICC, they are expecting to get one once it becomes public that Afghanistan will no longer be part of the tournament due to the fact they are not very good.
Kaipaki Cricket Enthusiast has stated “ being included in the 2015 Cricket World Cup will be a significant step for to our little cricket club. However, the ICC have made it clear that we need to upgrade our facilities so we are in the early stages of building a new pavilion”
“We also have to push the banks back as the ICC budget only allows for so many balls to be used during any one game” Currie included
Kaipaki will be in Pool A and will compete against the likes of England, Sri Lanka, New Zealand and a mouth watering fixture against Australia. There is already murmurs that Australia will have to play in a different coloured strip as Kaipaki’s constitution, that was drawn up by John Parker, clearly states that at no stage will Kaipaki play in colours other than green & gold.
Kaipaki have also made the promise to the ICC not to select Taz Kapadia for the tournament due to anti-corruption laws. Currie says” This will be a tough pill for Kapadia to swollen but he has been warned in the past about his match fixing and he hasn’t really been able to overcome it. He cost the Kaipaki Senior C team a championship last season because of his ability to determine results of games. However this will give him a chance to holiday for 6 weeks in the Carribean, south of France and also Thailand where he has holiday homes”
Kaipaki Oval’s new capacity is expected to rise to 75. They expect to fill these seats during February.
There is a presentation on Friday at 6pm at Kaipaki Oval where Kaipaki Passport holders can view and ask questions about the new Pavilion plans.
