Temp scoreboard at the ‘G

The Melbourne Cricket Ground, also known as the MCG, or simply the ‘G, has a temporary scoreboard while the previous vision boards (to use their correct names) are made even bigger. Scoreboard Pressure’s resident MCG photographer  battled the crowds to take some pics of this week’s Victoria vs South Australia Sheffield Shield game. The home team was soundly beaten by the South Australians. (Victoria 118 and 404; South Australia 343 and 3/183)

Lights, camera, but not a lot of action. The old visionboard is to the left.
