Rugby Legends beat Cricket Legends

The NZ cricket players versus nz rugby players T20 cricket match (The Black Clash) was amazing to watch last Thursday.

Past and present sports stars came together to play a great match. Kieran Read captained the rugby side, and Stephen Fleming captained the cricket side. Famous sportsmen such as Richie McCaw, Brendon McCullum, Beauden Barrett and Grant Elliot played on the same field.

The managers of the teams were Scott Robertson, who coached the cricket players, and Sir Graham Henry, who coached the rugby players.

The cricket players batted first and scored 168, Grant Elliot top scoring with 42 and Jordie Barrett getting 2 wickets.

The rugby players then blew the cricket players away with Brendon McCullum (somehow deemed to be a rugby player as his last sports match on NZ soil was a club rugby match) scoring 48, and Jordie Barrett with a solid 42, which won the rugby boys the game.

The overall man of the match was definitely Jordie Barrett, with 42 runs and 2 wickets.

Hopefully, there will be more competitions like this in the future as I’m sure everyone enjoyed it.
