Summer is just around the corner and that means the cricket season is here. Grassroots cricket continues to grow in the inner west. Since 2012 the Marrickville Cricket Club has tripled in size and this year it will field 28 junior teams, including three girls-only teams. The club has more than 90 volunteers including coaches, managers, umpires and administrators supporting more than 400 players across every age division. I am confident some of Australia's great future cricketers are among its ranks. I take this opportunity to wish cricket teams across the State the very best for the season, including our fantastic New South Wales teams the Breakers, the Blues, the Sixers, and the Thunder. I have enjoyed working with the member for Camden on the Parliamentary Friends of Cricket and thank him for making it the most loved parliamentary friendship group in this place. I am deeply honoured to have shared this role with him in the current Parliament and wish him all the best for the future.
