Canberra gets a four day cricket game against India. India!

By 14 June 2011 9

Cricket Australia have announced that the mighty Indian cricket team is coming to Canberra for a four day game against a Chairman’s XI before Christmas!

Canberra will also enjoy plenty of action, hosting the traditional PM’s XI game against Sri Lanka, whilst also playing host to the CA Chairman’s XI v India tour game in the lead-up to the Christmas.

Cricket lovers had better plan to get there for this one if we want more!

I never thought I’d see first class cricket at Manuka.

About time, should have been the ACT back in the late 90s.

CA Chairman’s XI. I’m guessing that Simon Katich won’t be getting a start then?

I just got an email to say the CA site is wrong and the Manuka Oval website is correct :$

My earlier post got over written: The start date on the Manuka Oval website is the 19th – Monday. CA website says the 18th which is a Sunday and makes a lot more sense.

Oh, no – the Indians are coming. Let’s all hope the media DO NOT refer to Sachin Tendulkar as “The Little Master” – a name they recycled from the 1960s when Clive Churchill from the Rabbitohs rugby league team had that name.

It’s going to be a long, hot and very tedious summer.
