Peter Argent: Cricket Slips

Matt Higgs losing his strides

This cricket clothing faux pas (embarrassment) happened during the final of the 2012 Grand Final of the Senior Country Carnival at University Number one oval on Thursday Feb 9.

The batsman in question in Yorke Peninsula an Lower North all rounder Matthew Higgs This guy is the prospective son in law of 1980s Australian batsman-keeper Wayne Phillips. Some would suggest big Higgsy’s dress sense is about the same as his father-in-law-to-be’s was.

Still Matt didn’t lose his composure, despite his clothing malfunction – he made an important 20 not out at the death and bowled the penultimate over of the contest – in the YP’s exciting seven run win.

Cheers Peter Argent
