The cricket match will be the first of its kind; the 20-over exhibition-style cricket match will be held within the airport terminal and is scheduled to take place on November 22nd in order to align with the start of the Indian Cricket Team’s Australia tour.
Former Australian cricket players, Brett Lee and Michael Kasprowicz will captain the two teams consisting of senior representatives from the India and Australia travel industries.
Speaking about the upcoming exhibition match, Brisbane Airport Corporation CEO, Gert-Jan de Graaf, said: “India and Australia share a love of family, travel and cricket, so we thought we’d take the opportunity to celebrate these shared values with a bit of fun, whilst also showcasing Brisbane as an aspirational travel destination offering a wide range of experiences for Indian visitors.”
Travellers who won’t be passing through Brisbane on November 22, however, can still catch the game on Brett Lee’s Facebook page, which will feature a live stream of the match beginning at 16:00 (AEST).
India’s cricket tour of Australia begins on November 21 with a T20 match at Brisbane Cricket Ground.
