Former Australian Cricketer Alex Blackwell Spoke to Media Alongside Sir Peter Cosgrove

Former Australian cricketer Alex Blackwell spoke to media alongside His Excellency General the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC (Retd), the Governor-General at Government House in Canberra today following her appointment as this year's Governor-General's XI captain.

The Governor-General’s XI match – inspired by the traditional Prime Minister’s XI game – pits some of the best young female players in Australia against a touring team.

Now in its fourth year, this summer’s GG's XI match will be a 50-over fixture against New Zealand at Drummoyne Oval on 28 February. The match will be played in between the second and third One-Day Internationals of the Commonwealth Bank Women's International Series against New Zealand, and will be broadcast live on Fox Cricket.
