Like many Australians, we love cricket. For over 26 years, we’ve been a proud supporter of the game from the grassroots to the grandstands.
The Commonwealth Bank is Cricket Australia's longest-standing partner. In 2013 we are delighted to announce our new sponsorship as the major sponsor of the Test Series in Australia, as well as the Australian Test team.
Test cricket is the pinnacle of Australian cricket. The Commonwealth Bank is the major sponsor of the Australian men's Test cricket team.
The Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars are the World Champions in both Twenty20 and One Day International cricket after their recent win at the ICC Women’s World Cup in India.
We are also proud to be developing the next generation of women cricketers through our support of the women’s development squad - the Commonwealth Bank Shooting Stars
Mike Hussey, or 'Mr Cricket' as he's known in cricketing circles, is a popular cricket player who recently retired from international cricket. Mike has been an Ambassador for the Commonwealth Bank since 2006.
We look forward seeing Mike play domestic cricket during the Australian summer, while continuing to be an influential figure in the game.
Ellyse Perry joined our cricket family as an Ambassador in 2010. Ellyse made her international debut for the Australian women's cricket team, the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars, in 2007, and was the youngest ever player to represent Australia in cricket.
Beyond her role in the Commonwealth Bank Southern Stars, Ellyse represents Australia as a member of the Australian women's football team, the Matildas, and studies at university.
The Commonwealth Bank is dedicated to supporting the growth of local cricket. Through our annual Grants for Grassroots Cricket™ program, we’re proud to support local cricket clubs across Australia.
We also sponsor the Australian Country Cricket Championships and the national Indigenous cricket competition, the Imparja Cup. Based in Alice Springs, the Imparja Cup is the flagship event for Indigenous cricket across the country.
