Indoor Sports Australia and Cricket Australia, have reached an agreement which sees Indoor Cricket become an integral part of Cricket Australia's operations effective Monday 9 February 2009.
There are more than 100 Indoor Cricket Centres spread throughout every State and Territory, with 200,000 active participants across Australia.
With cricket's vision to be Australia's favourite sport, this union is an exciting strategic step which will benefit the collective cricket community in the pursuit of this vision. There are few better places for young children to learn the game of cricket than at an Indoor Centre where the bounce is true, you are protected from the elements and the ball keeps coming back!
Whilst growing the participant and customer base of cricket is the key element of this agreement, it is also important to highlight the enormous success that the Australian Indoor Cricket Men's and Women's team have experienced. Australia are the current Men's, Women's, Boys 19 and Under, and Girls 19 and Under World Champions! Each team will be defending their world title at the World Cup for Indoor Cricket being held in Brisbane in October 2009 against countries like India, England, South Africa, New Zealand, Wales, France, Canada, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
