"Climate Change Could End The Boxing Day Cricket Test For Good

The annual Boxing Day Test might have to be moved to a cooler time of year, with climate change potentially putting the fixture -- and players -- in danger.
According to a new report commissioned by the Australian Conservation Foundation, climate change could mean the date of the Boxing Day Test has to be moved to a different time, because the heat of December may one day prove too harsh for players to compete in.

The report -- 'Caught behind: Climate change, extreme heat and the Boxing Day Test' -- urges Cricket Australia "take effective climate action to safeguard the future" of the sport in Australia. It also advises the game's governing body to move the Test match to a colder time of year, such as November or March, to avoid the hottest parts of summer.
"

This is what happens when people do not understand the difference between Climate and Weather

Interestingly just put the tv on to watch some of the Boxing Day test.  It appears overcast.  Weather for Melbourne supposed to be a top of 32 with 40% chance of rain currently it is 28.

Climate change....Melbourne.....???

38 one day, 15 the next....

A bunch of blokes standing around in the heat all day...if the average temp goes up 1 degree, I'm sure they'll adapt !!  ;D

Typical of the media to manufacture some news, commonly referred to as FAKE News.

Nice work!

Quote
One of Australia's most beloved duos, Paul Hogan and his best mate John "Strop" Cornell, are back together after 35 years, reuniting to film an ad for a new beer for the bushfire appeal.

The promotion for Hotel Brunswick beer, shot on Saturday morning, is the first time the duo has appeared in character since the hugely successful The Paul Hogan Show series ended in 1984.

The ad will screen in late-January to market a local brew for the NSW town Brunswick Heads' local pub, which former Nine Network chief executive David Gyngell owns with Cornell and his wife Delvene Delaney, also a star under the Hogan/Cornell umbrella. She will also appear on the advertisement playing the role of Rosie the barmaid.

Profits from sales of the Brunswick Brewing Co's summer ale Hotel Brunswick Classic Brew will go to the bushfire appeal as well as wildlife and environmental charities.

I haven't seen that for years. The show was funnier than the films. I remember strops being obsessed with the Queen Mum. Maybe just one show though.

I find it interesting that the victim, at 61, is described as elderly, while his attacker, at 58, is just some git with loose bowels >:D What age is the cusp for elderly?
