More than 30 cricketers had the opportunity to demonstrate their skills across a range of fielding, bowling and batting activities.

“We won the final three years ago, the feeling was amazing, like nothing I’ve ever experienced before,” Khan said.

The HomeWorld Thunder Nation Cup exists to bring communities together and to celebrate culture.

“To represent your country, your nation, it’s a part of your identity, it’s amazing,” Khan said.

“I was born in Pakistan and moved over when I was 5 years old. Australia has been so welcoming to me, especially through the sport of cricket.”
