CRICKET FOR LIFE is about a fraternity of cricket lovers in their 50s, 60s and even their 70s rediscovering the joy of playing cricket and staying fit and healthy. 

With the support of Veterans Cricket Australia, thousands of veteran cricketers are getting out on the park playing against blokes their own age. Season 2020-21 will see a record 1400 veteran cricketers around Victoria donning the whites on Sundays or in mid-week games.
