The beautiful artwork of Darwin Star, Luneta Bindoraho, featured on the Kookaburra bats of several of Australia’s women cricketers on Saturday.
During the Australian Women’s Cricket team’s Indigenous-themed Twenty20 International against England, Alyssa Healy, Rachel Haynes and Megan Schutt played with bats adorned with Luneta’s design.
Luneta’s artwork was seen by the world on television broadcasts of the match on the weekend and we couldn’t be prouder of her!
Stars from around Australia were invited by Kookaburra to submit their artwork to adorn the bats of the Australian superstars in this special match, inspired by Dan Christian’s challenge to Clontarf Academies for the recent Melbourne Renegades Indigenous BBL match.
Cricketer, Alyssa Healy, said she was excited to use the bat on what was a first for the Australian women’s team.
The concept of the Indigenous-themed game is something I was very excited to be part of. The opportunity to support Stars Foundation and represent the artwork of young Indigenous girls is something I am thrilled to support,” Healy said.
Stars Foundation is a partner of Cricket Australia’s Indigenous cricket programs.
