SIDELINES
By Paul Moran
15 mins
Born and bred Hobartians and best mates, Shaun and Zac, fulfil a lifelong dream to create their own cricket team, despite financial and social struggles to get it up and running. But once they got going, the pair struggled and fought, to motivate and keep their team of Aussie blokes in the game. Inspired and motivated by their opponents (mostly hailing from the Indian Subcontinent) proven commitment and passion to the game, Shaun and Zac reached out for their support. In stark contrast to the stereotypes that might normally depict Tasmania as a multicultural backwater, Shaun and Zac stood out as two young men open to change, embracing multiculturalism and completely unencumbered by any notions of racial differences, accepting all comers to their team as equals so long as they were committed to the team. To them it mattered not where you came from, the game was the focus and as well as a desire to overcome their struggles in a place where everyone was equal, and cricket proved to be the great leveller.
