In summer, Melbourne hosts men's and women's Test cricket, Twenty-20 and One-Day International cricket matches. At Christmas time the famous Boxing Day Test Match takes place on the hallowed ground of the Melbourne Cricket Ground. The MCG, or 'the G' as locals call it, is Melbourne's traditional sporting heart.
