2015 All Abilities Championships Day 4

On the final day of competition at
the 2015 All Abilities Championships,
we had an absolutely thrilling final between
Queensland Blind Cricket Association
and
South Australia Blind Cricket Association.

This was definitely one of the better matches that we’ve ever broadcast on
Blind Sports Radio,
and after a day filled with epic play, there could only be one winner.

We congratulate
South Australia Blind Cricket Association
for taking out this year’s championships and it was fabulous to see you boys win your first nationals ever.

We sincerely thank all of the clubs for so graciously allowing us to talk with all of your players and staff throughout the champs and we especially thank
Aaron Dragwidge
and numerous others from
Cricket Australia
for your assistance throughout this magnificent tournament.
