Congrats to All Stars, but didn't they win the Panorama in 2012 also? http://www.panonthenet.com/history/past_panorama_results.htm
Seeing as this article was written in 2011 about the bomb competition from that same year...
Thanks Noah, for pointing this out to me, Age catching up with meh, 70 yrs old
No comment about the Harvard Harps ?? They lick up the rest, including the all the other "big boys" and nearly take All Stars wicket too! Well done Dougie and those who stuck with the band.
