Cricket Australia's National Indigenous development squad departs for India this week to attend the country's Global cricket schools and play a series of matches against representative sides.
From October 14 to 26, the tour will combine cricket development with cultural experiences, including a visit to India's largest slum and local orphanages. They will also attend Ozfest, a celebration of contemporary Australian culture which is touring India.
Team captain, Josh Lalor, a member of the New South Wales and Perth Scorcher squads, said the team is excited by the opportunity to develop their cricket and take in the uniqueness of India.
'The tour is a fantastic opportunity for members of the squad to come to a vastly different part of the world to develop our cricket and learn from exposure to new cultures,' said Lalor.
Documentary makers JetZak will accompany the team on tour, producing an hour-long documentary to screen on NITV/SBS.
