Australia, New Zealand to honour ANZAC in Brisbane Test

  • Next week's first Test between Australia and New Zealand here will hold extra significance through a partnership between Cricket Australia (CA) and the Returned and Services League (RSL) to commemorate the centenary of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). As part of the RSL'S National Poppy Appeal, the match will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the 1915 ANZAC landing at Gallipoli. Just days before Remembrance Day, the Test will involve Australian Defence Force, New Zealand Defence Force and RSL personnel taking part in the official pre-match ceremony. (Source: IANS)
