A new record was made during the Big Bash T20 tournament in Melbourne. The total attendance registered for the match between Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades was 80,883.

Melbourne Stars Coach Stephen Fleming was excited and said,

There’s a lot of talk about the different formats of the game but when you’re getting crowds of 80,000, it’s sending a pretty strong message,”

It’s something I’m sure a lot of people will be taking notice of and looking to plot the future.

It’s just extraordinary where this competition is going. You’ve got quality cricket but the crowd support … it’s astonishing.



We hope crowd turns up in such numbers for all formats hence making cricket a winner in all this.
