World Cup Cricket Flag Bearers


Flag bearers On Tuesday, a group of Year 7 girls went to Grace Road in Leicester to enjoy a game of cricket; the ICC Women's World Cup England v Pakistan fixture.

During flag bearing rehearsals the girls learnt all about the respect held for the flags, so began the day with some fear of dropping it, but did really well learning to furl and unfurl the flag and tilt the flag for the TV cameras.
