Crusaders bowled over by community spirit

INTERNATIONAL cricket is alive and well in southern Tasmania thanks to the efforts of the IC Crusaders.

The Crusaders recently held a match at the Copping Cricket Ground with the Copping Christian Fellowship, and have another match scheduled at Austins Ferry.

One of the event organisers, Raj Chopra, said the day was an enjoyable one, where people from different backgrounds had the chance to meet, share food and get to know each other.

“We supported the Australian human rights commission campaign, ‘Racism. It stops with me’,” he said.

“It was a great example of how Australia welcomes the people from different backgrounds and supports them,”

People who are interested in joining the IC Crusaders or would like to organise a game are asked to contact Raj Chopra via email at
