Bowl yourself over with water at the cricket

Prime Minister's XI cricket match spectators are urged to take plenty of water with them today to Manuka Oval to keep well hydrated in the hot weather conditions.

The Bureau of Meteorology has forecast a top temperature of 37 degrees for the ACT.

The ACT Health Directorate advise consumption of alcohol and soft drinks dehydrate the body so it is important spectators drink plenty of water through the day, wear a loose fitting long-sleeved shirt, a hat, apply plenty of sunscreen and take regular breaks out of direct sunlight.
