On behalf of the ACT Government, I congratulate the Federation of Indian Associations of the ACT on your success with the fifth annual T-20 Cricket Tournament.
Cricket is one of the many shared pastimes linking India and Australia and it has been wonderful to see the passions and excitement on the pitch in this tournament over the past few weeks. Each of the teams should be proud of their achievements.
Indian culture is a rich and important part of Canberra and the Federation plays a vital role in developing events that bring people together. Your passionate advocating for a more inclusive city makes Canberra a better place to live. Canberra is a meeting place for people from all cultures and it is fantastic to see events such as this T-20 tournament bringing people together.
Thank you to all who have made this tournament possible. It takes a lot of ha~d work and considerable effort to plan a successful tournament like this and it is great to see it pay off. Good luck to those playing in the final and may the best team win.
Andrew Barr MLA
