Rangiora’s MainPower Oval Stars as a Venue – Pity Canterbury Lost!

130106 Canterbury v Wellington Cricket, MainPower Oval 2 (640x480)

As you can see from the photo, a big crowd turned up at Rangiora’s MainPower Oval to watch the Canterbury Wizards take on the Wellington Firebirds in a Twenty20 match today. It is turning into an excellent venue and is Canterbury’s favoured home ground now that other suitable Christchurch venues are out of action because of the earthquakes.

It is a pity, from the perspective of a lifelong Cantabrian, that Canterbury could not match Wellington today. I have to admit they were outclassed and Wellington deserved their comfortable win.
