Sean Abbott plays with the kids! Mathew Axtill is the 'keeper.

 

Parkview Public School students were treated to a rare experience on Friday when they were able to engage in a game of cricket with two first class players who were visiting the school. NSW Blues and Sydney Thunder representatives Nick Bills and Sean Abbott spent time at the school promoting cricket and also joined in a T20 Blast match with talented players from the school.
 
Bills and Abbott spent a lot of time fielding questions from all students in the school about the cricketing experiences, topics ranging from their favourite players, highest scores, how they got involved in cricket and even in-depth questions relating to Bills' experience playing cricket on the sub-continent.
 
After questions and autographs it was time for Parkview's finest to take on the NSW pairing, with tremendous fun had by all students. For the record Abbott's Aces chased down Bills' Bashers total of 51 with a couple of balls to spare in the 8 over-a-side game, but the result was irrelevant as the boys and girls got the unique opportunity to enjoy a game of cricket with first class players!
