The Duchess of Cambridge took upon herself to bat for Christchurch city which has been tossed and turned by an earthquake. She was startled by the performance of her husband on the field.
She, along with her husband played cricket in order to promote the World Cup 2015 and the fathers of the city believe that with this match the city will bring back their economical balance which has been shattered by the earthquake, leaving 185 dead and a £25 billion compensation bill.
She stood at the crease with her four inches high heels like she always wears. She strived away a few balls delivered by her husband, Duke of Cambridge, Prince William. William’s performance left Kate with a smirk when a huge delivery from his stroke inches from her face. But she took a fraction of a moment to be back with her serenity. Nevertheless, she moved side to side with William, as it might be to tell him off in the interim of the extemporized game.
Prince delivered several balls at children and told one kid, “This will be a blur.” At that time Kate was behind the stumps.
The magnificent royal couple went to the city in order to attend a number of events to pay their respects to victims of the earthquake that battered Christchurch on February 22, 2011 and to go through the regeneration efforts.
At the end of their all events they got involved to support the 2015 World Cup that is going to take place in New Zealand and Australia. The first match will be held in Christchurch.
The Duchess stomped to the temporary field in Christchurch’s Latimer Square and former New Zealand Batswoman Debbie Hockley joined her later, while, William confidently unbuttoned his suit and went to the other end and started hurling the ball a few inches in the air and chatting with Sir Richard Hadlee, one of the finest Kiwi Cricketer.
William delivered a full toss in his first delivery, which very close to Kate’s head, while, Hockley pounded forward and registered the ball as well wide of the crease by enduring her arms. Kate, however, got ready for the next delivery and clumped forward to hit it to short mid-off, though, it was saved by one of the young players.
The next delivery from her husband got taken a hop past the stumps and there was a stroke and a miss from Kate at the final delivery. Later, Hockley stated that she said to the Duchess of the Cambridge that to concentrate only on hitting the ball and not to think hard on the techniques. “I thought they showed great sports to get involved in it. I couldn’t bat in high heels. She has not played before so it’s a quite good effort and she did her best.”
Kate played a little bit crickets in her school.
After that, William got to bat and her wife acted as a wicketkeeper. William displayed his talents as he encountered the young players. Though he uses his left hand to write, but he batted with his right hand and smashed the balls over the heads off the fielders then another which was almost out of the field.
Later, William gave his speech when he visited the Air Force Museum of New Zealand at Wigram, a former base in Christchurch.
