THE Albion Park MILO in2CRICKET kids joined fellow program participants from throughout the country in practicing their skills during the lunch break of the Third Test between Australia and Sri Lanka at the SCG.
The program is a way for children aged five-10 to learn skills, make new friends, and stay fit and healthy.
Participants are involved in a structured six-12 week program, which provides them with the opportunity to develop cricket, physical and social skills as well as sportsmanship through the game of cricket.
All participants receive a starter pack including a bat, ball, T-shirt, bucket hat, backpack, MILO products and more.
Last season there were more than 1400 in2CRICKET clubs and centres, with overall participation reaching more than 160,000.
Australian captain Michael Clarke said there was no better way to spend a day than with new friends learning how to play cricket.
Clarke is the first MILO cricket program graduate to be selected for the Australian team and he harbours fond memories from his own time spent in the program.
"I remember the first time that I got to play on the SCG with my mates as a MILO kid and it was an incredible experience," he said.
