“The rivalry between the Australian and Indian men’s cricket teams is one of the greatest in international sport and this series is shaping up as an epic,” Everard said.

“It’s been fantastic to see so much interest in the Dettol ODI and T20I Series, with the high demand starting from yesterday with our pre-sale period offered to the Australian Cricket Family.”

  “The safety of our fans will still be our number one priority, so communications to ticket holders will be occurring to ensure our COVIDSafe plans are executed effectively.”

James Allsopp, Cricket ACT CEO, said that there was some genuine excitement building in Canberra ahead of the two T20Is.

“It’s fantastic to have such high-quality international cricket coming to the ACT this summer and I’m not surprised that fans have acted so quickly to ensure they have a seat,” he said.

“Both games at Manuka are going to be fierce contests, and we look forward to welcoming the Australian and Indian teams to Canberra.”

“With such high demand, it’s inevitable that some fans may have missed out, but there is plenty of other cricket to come with BBL matches in Canberra.”
