Match Report: Fitzy & Wippa with Kate Ritchie’s Backyard Cricket

Aussie Prime Minister Anthony Albanese made a robust display batting and fielding yesterday at Fitzy & Wippa with Kate Richie’s Backyard Cricket.

The game hosted by the PM at Kirribilli House was another fine spectacle in the Fitzy & Wippa with Kate Ritche’s charity match saga, which raised $10,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities and $10,000 for Batyr Australia . M.J. Bale was proud to create the match-day blazer worn by the teams for the 4th year in a row.

Other legends at the game included Brett Lee, NSW Premier Chris Minns, Dr Andrew Rochford, Richard Wilkins, Amy Shark, Matt Shirvington, Cortnee Vine, Mark Ferguson, Damien Cook, Nedd Brockmann, Lleyton Hewitt Brendon Julian, Matt De Groot, Ray Meagher, and Hewie Fitzgerald.

Thanks to Fitzy, Wippa, Kate Richie and Nova 96.9FM for having us again to support a great cause and congratulations to Team Fitzy for the win.
