It's a very special venue and a very special occasion.
This game is something Australians really look forward to.
One-day cricket is a very important part of our play. We've got a long way to go until the next World Cup and for us it's one ruthless game after another where we can play well.
Everything this series is being built up to be - I think it's going to live up to those expectations.
It's a fun day, a day which kicks off the start of our tour, it's got great tradition - Australian cricketers just love tradition - and it's been a really pleasant day.
Both sides have been playing tremendous cricket over a couple of years and they're both very good units.
