It's a very special venue and a very special occasion.
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.
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.
Everything this series is being built up to be - I think it's going to live up to those expectations.
This game is something Australians really look forward to.
