CONSTITUENCY QUESTION | WOMEN’S T20 CRICKET FINAL ON INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan): My constituency question is directed to the Minister for Racing, Minister for Jobs, Innovation and Trade and Minister for Tourism, Sport and Major Events, the Honourable Martin Pakula.
My question to the minister relates to his portfolio responsibilities of tourism, sport and major events. The ICC T20 World Cup is almost here. The Australian women’s cricket team will take on all comers at the ICC T20 World Cup, and Victorians are ready to support our best players. A sellout crowd for the final, to be played at 7.00 pm on International Women’s Day, could make history, with the highest attendance for a women’s sporting event standing at 90 185, achieved at the 1999 soccer World Cup final between the US and China in California. My question to the minister is: can the minister advise what special measures are being taken to ensure that this marquee event is communicated to the people of Western Metropolitan Region and Victoria in general?
