Today, Dame Patsy and Sir David watched the Governor-General’s XI versus the NZ Māori Schoolboys and Schoolgirls at the Karori Cricket Club in Wellington. This is the second year the Governor-General’s XI has played the NZ Māori Schoolboys. As last years match was such a sucess, the 2020 game had the addition of three girl’s teams as well.
While the Governor-General’s XI teams were mainly made up of promising Wellington cricketing talent, the NZ Māori Schools teams were nominated from Whangārei, Dunedin and everywhere in between.
In the end, the NZ Māori Schoolgirls XI won both matches they played, and the Governor-General’s XI won by 69 runs over the NZ Māori Schoolboys.
