Overview

Cricket

During the summer months, Melbourne hosts Test, Twenty-20 and One-day International cricket matches. Make sure you're around at Christmas time for the famous Boxing Day Test Match. The hallowed turf of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG or 'the G' as locals call it) is Melbourne's traditional sporting Mecca.

Boxing Day glory

The Boxing Day Test is arguably one of the greatest and highest profile Test matches on the world cricket calendar. Visit the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground and be a part of this great sporting tradition.

A day on the green

What began as a broadcaster's bright idea has become a well-loved Australian tradition over the summer months – One-day Internationals. Head to the MCG and spend the day watching the world's best go head to head.

Twenty-20

Though a relatively new code, there's no denying the excitement and intensity of the shortened version of the game. See the country's biggest stars take to the pitch in what is already the code of choice for the subcontinent's lucrative Indian Premier League.
