Cricket Match with SMACK & SMSJ & Johor Veteran in Skudai

Me and couple of my colleagues went to Johar Bahru to participate in a cricket match(es) with SMACK (Sains Muar Alumni Cricketers) and SMSJ (Sekolah Menegah Sains Johor) and Johor Veterans.

Since Johor Bahru is almost 350 KM from Kuala Lumpur, we left on previous day and checked into a budget hotel; which was not what we expected. 😛

Instead of staying at hotel, we roamed around Danga beach and found nothing to eat and drink.

Next day we checked out, and reached Mutiara Rini Cricket Ground at Skudai; We were very early at the ground. We saw the ground staff driving rollers on pitch and arranging sight screens and adjusting boundary lines and creases. It was a great experience.

After 5-6 hours of play; it began to rain and our day washed out. All we could do was pack and enjoy the rain. 😛
