ANDREW Barr has let Canberrans know tickets to November 19’s Carlton Mid One Day International at Manuka Oval are now on sale.
“It is great to see the Australian cricket team returning to Canberra after last year’s hugely successful Centenary of Canberra One Day International in February, which attracted a sell-out crowd,” Andrew said.
“Since then, Manuka Oval has undergone a number of upgrades to bring the venue up to a world-class standard, including the works to provide a new and improved playing surface and cricket wicket, and an increase of the venue’s capacity to around 15,800.
“This match forms part of a fantastic summer of sport in Canberra which will include seven AFC Asian Cup 2015 games and three ICC Cricket World Cup matches.
“Hosting matches such as this provide a boost to our economy through visitation and the opportunity to showcase our business credentials as well as being an enormous vote of confidence in cricket in this region.”
Tickets are available from Ticketek.
