The last of 10 postcards from Postcards from the Sledge. It’s the end of our exclusive run, and many thanks to Beach for allowing them here. Hopefully I’ve helped him sell a few. In 24 hours, the first ball will be hurled down in Brisbane and the sledging can really start.

A new one will appear every third day. Of course, you shouldn’t just wait for them to show up here…go and buy your own! Here’s the first:
