On behalf of the ACT Government, welcome to the 2014 Federation of Indian Associations of ACT (FINACT) T20 Rolling Trophy Cricket Tournament.
Now in its third year, the tournament celebrates the shared passion that both India and Australia have for the great game of cricket. The ACT Indian community has truly embraced this event with participation once again set to exceed previous years.
Sport brings people together from diverse cultures and walks of life. In particular, cricket fosters cultural exchange, on the pitch, in local competitions and through tournaments such as this.
This year’s tournament comes towards the end of another fantastic season of cricket in Canberra, including the great success of the sell-out Prime Minister’s XI game against England. With the 2015 Cricket World Cup fast approaching, including three games at beautiful Manuka Oval, the ACT Government continues to support cricket at all levels in the ACT.
Thank you to all that have made this tournament possible. Good luck to all participants and enjoy your time in Canberra, the place of brilliant possibilities.
Andrew Barr MLA
Deputy Chief Minister
