Martin Freeman and Ian McKellen, well known cricket umpires

The Basin Reserve is indeed filled to capacity today for the charity "fill the basin" cricket match for Christchurch. There aren't just famous cricketers there, but also actors, mayors, and a Prime Minster, John Key, who hit a four off one of Shane Warne's (very easy) balls during the break to get $100,000 for Christchurch.

Ian McKellen and Martin Freeman are umpires! How cool is that?

It's still on now, but sadly not on TV; I'd be watching otherwise.
