Doug Bollinger 1st Ball in Test Cricket SCG January 2009

Doug Bollinger is the working man's cricketer, so it is no surprise that when the NSW paceman was selected for National honours that it was met with the applause of the SCG faithful. This footage captures the feeling of this monumentous occasion from the perspective of someone in the crowd. Doug is bowling to Graeme Smith the South African captain with Neil McKenzie at the non-strikers end. Australia went on to win this historic Test Match with Bollinger taking 2-53 in the crucial final innings of the Test.
