Record low crowd for Australia-England ODI reignites debate about format’s future


Australia’s third and final match against England has taken place in front lowest crowd for an ODI involving Australia at the MCG.

With Australia taking an unassailable 2-0 series lead into Tuesday’s match, spectators stayed away from the largest stadium in the country for the midweek dead rubber match, which was interrupted at times by rain.

Openers David Warner and Travis Head put on a 269-run opening stand as Australia made 5-355.

The crowd increased during the course of Australia’s innings, but the top level of the MCG was closed in a sign of the predicted low crowd.

The final crowd number of 10,406 is the lowest Australia have played in front of in an ODI at the MCG.

The previous lowest attendance for an ODI at the MCG involving Australia was in 1979 when 12,077 turned up to watch the hosts against England.

An online survey found more than 30 per cent of participants believed ODI cricket would die off in 10 to 15 years.(AAP: Morgan Hancock)

Only three ODIs have previously been held at the MCG in November, with an average attendance for those matches just 17,993.

The crowds at these three ODIs against England have again raised debate about the future of the 50-over game.
