According to a report, The Gabba looks set to sign off its up-and-down summer with a strong one-day international crowd that could be pivotal to its chances of earning a prized pink-ball Test. Brisbane was pilloried for poor crowds to start the 2015-16 Test summer against New Zealand, even if the eventual total of 53,572 represented an attendance record for Trans-Tasman red-ball cricket at the venue.
"An unusually early start and the lack of drawing power of the tourists were given as reasons but rivals circling for Brisbane's Test, or spot in the schedule, were quick to suggest the fixture might be on the ropes and cricket on the nose with locals," the report stated.
According to the report, the crowd attracted during local team Brisbane Heats' BBL games have been an indicator that spectators love entertainment.
