Cricket in the dessert

Great to find this picture from the HM British Army facebook newsfeed … Of a Flicx Pitch that has made it’s way to Kenya!

A cricket pitch built by members of 70 Gurkha Field Squadron, part of 36 Engineer Regiment, for Maasai tribesmen in Northern Kenya. The project was part of a training exercise undertaken via the British Army Training Unit Kenya for the Maasai Cricket Warriors, a unique team of semi-nomadic herdsmen who have adopted the game of cricket in order to promote social change among their tribe.
