SYDNEY - Australia has officially opened the world’s first International Cricket Hall of Fame exhibition in New South Wales, to honour the legacy of Sir Donald Bradman at Bowral, where he developed his cricketing skills.
According to news.com.au, the New South Wales Government has spent over 7.4 million dollars on the project. The exhibition at the Bradman Oval features state-of-the-art interactive displays and high definition video of Bradman and other the great players of the game.
New South Wales Premier Kristina Keneally said the Hall of Fame would be developed as a world-class cricket icon.
“Bowral has long laid claim to being a key development ground for a young Don Bradman and the local Bradman Museum has both honoured his legacy and bolstered tourism in the Southern Highlands. I commend the Bradman Foundation for taking its vision to the next level by establishing the new International Cricket Hall of Fame,” Keneally said.
“Whether you’re a die-hard cricket fan or simply interested in learning more about one of the world’s most popular sports, the International Cricket Hall of Fame has something for the whole family,” she added.
Meanwhile, Sport Minister Kevin Greene said he was “proud and delighted” by the investment.
The hall of fame will open to the public on November 29 this year. (ANI)
