It was a beautiful sunny day in lovely Larkspur, the perfect setting for the 2017 Clash for the Ashes! More than 150 cricket fans gathered in the pristine Piper Park to watch the feast of cricketing drama between Bay Area Aussies and Englishmen. The game was action packet throughout the England opening of 130 all out. The question of the afternoon being whether or not that was an achievable score was confidently put to rest by the Australians as they finished off the game with a stunning shot for 6!. Thanks to the Marin Cricket Club and all the players for an excellent day!
