In commemorating Australia and India's national days on 26 January, celebrations kicked off this week with a friendly cricket match between the two countries. Teams from the Australian and Indian High Commissions took on each other in a limited overs cricket game in Pretoria.

Sport unites all and it was a fitting celebration playing a much loved national sport for both countries.

This fixture is set to become an annual event as part of the celebrations. India was victorious in this inaugural event and Australia hopes to redeem themselves at next year.
