Anyone for cricket?

This is another Fathers Day card on a double side stepper but this time it's on a sporty theme.  The template for this can be found on my Dads Shed card post.

I've taken the cricket score board and entered relevant numbers - top line: date of birth, middle line: age & surname, bottom line: date of birth of his grandson and son - I wonder if he'll work this out?

My wonderful OH has used his woodwork skills to make the cricket bat - isn't he clever?  The stumps and bails were made from cocktail sticks wrapped with card and then coloured with promarkers.

I've entered this card into the following challenges:
