Canberra to host ODIs for first time

The Australian cricket team will play in Canberra for the first time early next year when the city hosts a tri-series one-day international, with the hint of more to come.

Cricket Australia announced on Friday that Australia will play either Sri Lanka or the West Indies in a day-night game at Manuka Oval.

"This is an historic moment for cricket in nation's capital and a great way to help celebrate the centenary of Canberra," said CA chief executive James Sutherland, welcoming support from the ACT Government to secure the match.

Sutherland was making no promises, but suggested Canberra could host more internationals including 2015 World Cup matches.

"At this stage it's a one-off," Sutherland told reporters.

"It's one step at a time. Let's get the lights up. Let's get the Australian team here."

He indicated upgrading Manuka Oval was key to attracting more matches.

"The ACT Government's commitment to upgrading Manuka Oval will not only help to position it to host future international and domestic cricket matches, including matches in the 2015 Cricket World Cup, but it will also help grow the game of cricket in Canberra and surrounding areas, which is critical to our vision for cricket to be Australia's favourite sport," he said.
