The 2009 Indoor Cricket World Cup was the ninth edition of the tournament and took place between 11 and 17 October 2009 in Brisbane, Australia.[1] The event is notable as the first international indoor cricket event to take place there since the merger of Indoor Cricket Australia and Cricket Australia.[2]

Australian Cricket hall of fame member and former test cricketer Ian Healy served as ambassador for the event.[2]

The 2009 Junior World Series of Indoor Cricket took place alongside this event.[1]

Host Selection[edit]

The World Cup was awarded to Australia by the WICF at the conclusion of the previous World Cup. As a result, Australia became the second nation to host the World Cup twice, having hosted the 1998 Indoor Cricket World Cup at the Glass House in Melbourne.[3]

As the national body for both traditional cricket and indoor cricket, Cricket Australia is the first unified national body to host an international indoor cricket event.

Venue[edit]

Cricket Australia determined that Brisbane West Indoor Sports Centre in Darra, Brisbane would host all World Cup matches and Brisbane became the host city as a result. Cricket Australia relocated the 2009 Australian Open Indoor Cricket Championships from Campbelltown[4] to Brisbane to serve as a test event for the new venue.

Media coverage[edit]

Television[edit]

Cricket Australia has arranged for limited delayed telecast of the finals series on Fox Sports in Australia.[5] This represents the first mainstream television coverage of an Indoor Cricket event (international or otherwise) in a decade. Fox Sports will broadcast highlights packages for the finals series and will broadcast the Men's final in full approximately two weeks after the conclusion of the tournament.[5]

Online Coverage[edit]

Cricket Australia provided online coverage including news and results on the official World Cup Website.[6] Action Sports South Africa provided full results details (including scoresheets and statistics) on their website.[7]

A number of players, officials and spectators also provided coverage for friends and members of the public via social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter.[8]

Participants[edit]

Men's Division

India and Pakistan were also entered in the Men's division but were forced to withdraw just days before the commencement of the tournament due to issues entering Australia. The withdrawal was at such short notice that the tournament program still contains the team listings and player photographs for both sides, and includes the original draw featuring their matches.[9]

Women's Division

Round Robin Tournament[edit]

Day One[edit]

The entirety of day one was a "ticketed session" in that only ticket holders were allowed into the venue. The theme for the day was "Trans Tasman Day" and featured Australia vs New Zealand in the evening match.[1]
