“Having players from around the globe come together for a series of games against the ACT Meteors at Manuka Oval, Canberra’s international venue, is a wonderful opportunity for all involved. 

“FairBreak’s commitment to progressing gender equality on the global stage certainly aligns with the work we are doing locally to enhance opportunities for women and girls within our great game. 

“Cricket ACT released its 2022–2025 Strategic Plan ‘Thriving on and off the field’ this year, with a strong commitment to accelerate and advance the sport in the ACT and region. 

“Accelerating momentum in growth for girls and women is a key priority in our strategic plan. 

“Bolstered by the success of the ACT Meteors, we are committed to investing in accelerating female participation across the board—players, coaches, officials, and administrators.” 

“Hosting teams like the FairBreak XI helps us to elevate the importance of women in our sport even further, and we are delighted to have the FairBreak community in the Nation’s Capital,” Ms Thornton said. 

“Our FairBreak team for the matches in Canberra contains players representing 11 countries. 

We would like to thank Cricket ACT for providing us with this opportunity,” FairBreak Founder, Shaun Martyn, said. 

“I’ve found Olivia Thornton and her team at Cricket ACT to be great to work with and completely on board with the FairBreak movement. 

“The week will culminate in the launch of the book on FairBreak and the team’s attendance at the Cricket ACT Centenary Gala dinner. 

“This again provides a platform to highlight the talent that exists in women’s cricket around the globe, and we hope the start of a long association with the Cricket ACT and Manuka Oval,” Mr Martyn said.
