Australia Vs India 4 One Day – Manuka Oval- Preview

Manuka Oval, also known as StarTrack Oval Canberra during Australian rules football matches for sponsorship reasons is a 13,550 capacity cricket ground   The stadium is home to many events throughout the year, including cricket matches in the summer months and Australian rules football matches in the winter months. The first cricket match to be played at the oval was on Easter Monday, 13 April 1930.The Prime Minister's XI is played at the oval annually, it was started by Robert Menzies in 1951 and there were six more matches up to 1965 in his term as Prime Minister, the match was brought back in 1984 by Bob Hawke and has been played annually since. In 1992, the ground hosted its first One Day International (ODI) match between South Africa and Zimbabwe as part of the 1992 Cricket World Cup, but otherwise remained largely unused for top level cricket The ACT Government last year signed an agreement with Cricket Australia to host a One-Day International or a Twenty20 International in Canberra every year until 2019. Team batting first have won most games at Manuka Oval. It is a hot day in Canberra and Wicket looks  great for batting. Looks like another Mumbai pitch full of runs.
