Yirrkala vs. the Rest of the World: North-east Arnhem Land’s first cricket match under lights.

Stretches of astro turf laid on a football oval and half-time entertainment from Yothu Yindi were just some of the highlights of north-east Arnhem Land’s first-ever cricket match under lights.

Although Yirrkala is traditionally football heartland, community members assembled two cricket teams for the weekend’s Yirrkala vs. the Rest of the World day-night match.

The Yirrkala team comprised locals from the coastal Indigenous community, with some traditional owners trying their hands at cricket for the first time.
