Cricket Australia Executive General Manager, Operations, Mike McKenna said:

“The PM’s XI and the T20 International double headers for this summer are an exciting prospect for fans young and old and we are sure the people of Canberra, Melbourne, Geelong and Adelaide will come in great numbers to see some of the best Australian men’s and women’s players take on Sri Lanka and New Zealand respectively in February.

“We are particularly pleased to be bringing international cricket to Geelong for the first time. The success of the BBL exhibition match last year between the Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades represents the enthusiasm the city has for the T20 format and we look forward to seeing a great crowd enjoying a fantastic atmosphere at the double-header match on 19 February.

“As we have seen with the growth of the BBL, T20s are hugely popular with families and so we are happy to be bringing the Kids in for Free offer back for this season, making family attendance a great value entertainment option.”
