TEST REFUNDS AVAILABLE FOR DAY 2
For the first time in 29 years, the Gabba has lost a full day of play in a Test match.
Day 2 of the first Vodafone Test between Australia and South Africa was washed out with a ball being bowled today.
It is the first occurrence since the final day of the November 1983 Test against Pakistan.
It did not rain from 8-9am this morning, with heightened hopes of play until a big, black curtain of rain dumped on the ground at 9.30pm and persistent rain continued throughout the day.
A hardy 6142 souls still came through the turnstiles, only to be disappointed when the umpires called off play at 4pm.
It stopped raining shortly after and fine weather is forecast for the remainder of the game.
Cricket Australia and Queensland Cricket have announced that patrons who purchased tickets to Day 2 are eligible for a refund under the terms of Cricket Australia’s 2012-13 National Refund Policy.
Ticket purchasers from today are eligible for a refund for the value printed on their ticket, less an administration fee of $2.50 per ticket.
For patrons who purchased their ticket via the internet, phone or mail order, refunds will be processed automatically to the credit card on which the ticket was bought.
For patrons that purchased their ticket from a Ticketmaster or at the gate of the venue and wish to apply for a refund, tickets must be mailed along with contract details to: Ticketmaster: Cricket Refunds, GPO Box 762 MELBOURNE VIC 3001.
Refunds will not be available at the ground.
