Britain beat Australia without increasing traction in its backyard, a group of scantily clad women on the edge of the court.
But when Captain Joe Root leads his players on the field Thursday at womens bikinis sale , they will have a further obstacle to overcome.
As if the task at hand is not tough enough, about 150 bikini clad fans will enjoy the eight meter swimming pool at the end of the six meter pool.
Do two decks of seats, tables and shadows, and they will enjoy free drinks and snacks on the splash pool, while keeping a careful eye game in hand.
This is the first swimming pool deck, set into a clear screen at the bottom of the grandstand with the pool and outfield, and has been opened in a gray test.
In December last year, in order to attract more viewers to test cricket, this function was installed in the Brisbane stadium.
Fans need to bring their favorite beach suits and swimsuits into the swimming pool deck of observers in randomly selected crowds.
In the first test site, known as “gabbatoir”, because of the hostility of its opponents and position as a fortress, where Australia lost a test in 1988.
Britain won the last 420000 games in 1986, so it’s unlikely that there will be any reason to attract their eyeballs.
Simon, Hughes, cricket player and writer, said there was no doubt that it might lead to problems.
He said, “of course it’s a kind of interference.”.
But it can also prove that your mistreatment on the border is a good contrast. That will make you feel better.”
David Gower, 60, the former British cricket captain, insists that there are so many distractions at home that the crowd shouldn’t make a difference in one.
“If you hit the Gabba in the ashes, there are one million things, it’s hard for the crowd. A beautiful girl in bikinis shouldn’t be a distraction.
“It’s a series that nobody’s trying to sell, so the pool is just a gimmick.”. If it works, it works.”
He acknowledged that the Australians think they “invincible” at the Gabba, note the irony: “Australians love it.”
Mike Gatting, 60, another former British captain said fans would play in the swimming pool, and agreed that they would be easily overlooked.”
The pool is shallow, one meter deep, so diving and jumping are unlikely to add to the team’s troubles.
At the opening ceremony, Cricket Australia spokesman said, “this is cricket for the first time, and this is the first one with a swimming pool deck in cricket.”It’s a real fan participation idea, giving them something else to enjoy the cricket.
More than 140 people can at any time in the pool deck, about 1400 fans with swimming pool season advantage.
The general manager of the Anthony Everard event and the Australian Cricket League said he was happy to take the initiative again for the summer.
He said, “the swimming pool that was introduced last year was very popular, and we were happy to provide the fans with what they wanted and brought back the swimming pool this summer.”.
“Imagery” last year, fans watched the glamorous cricket match in the cooling pool, and I believe, especially English lovers, that many people are eager to get this summer’s chance on deck that has been suspended from Australia’s summer heat.”
The only drawback: there will be torrential rain and thunderstorms in Brisbane in the next few days.
