Police Officer Stops by for a Game of Cricket

A police officer was driving through Wollongong, New South Wales on January 26 when he spotted something not quite right.

Jason Vankuyk and his pals were playing cricket on the street. But the cop didn't shut the game down, instead this officer asked if he could join in on the fun.

Before long, it was his turn to bat and on his third strike, he hit the ball over a fence and out of the boundary, eliminating him from play. That didn't stop him from getting a cheer however, before he went on his way once more.
