Lara confirmed for Bushfire Cricket Bash at the SCG
LONDON: Brian Lara, Nick Riewoldt, Dan Christian and Holly Ferling have rounded out the squads for the Bushfire Cricket Bash at the SCG on February 8.
Tickets are now on sale for the Bushfire Cricket Bash and KFC Big Bash League final, with the venue decided last night when the Sydney Sixers overcame the Melbourne Stars in The Qualifier at the MCG.
Tickets are now available at Ticketek. For more info, visit cricket.com.au/BigAppeal.
Lara, considered to be one of the greatest international batsmen of all time, joins a raft of cricket and sporting legends who are coming together to raise funds for communities affected by Australia’s bushfires.
The Bushfire Cricket Bash is one of three matches to be played as a part of The Big Appeal on February 8, following the Women’s CommBank T20I between Australia and India at Junction Oval and preceding the KFC BBL|09 Final.
Anthony Everard, Cricket Australia Executive General Manager of Fan Engagement, said it’s going to be one of the biggest days ever for cricket.
“To have Brian Lara playing in this match is an unbelievable win for our fans,” he said.
“It’s also going to be a great experience for our playing squad, particularly the likes of Phoebe Litchfield who could find herself batting alongside Brian.” – Agencies
