On Saturday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) was seen praising the creativity of a group of fans, who arrived at the Gabba in Brisbane wearing costumes of famous Star Wars characters. A bunch of fans came out on Day 3 of the Brisbane Test dressed as Stormtroopers wearing their famous white attire, while one man was seen standing in the middle, dressed in black costume of main villain Darth Vader.
The fans had come dressed in the attire to watch Day 2 of the fourth Test between Australia and India, which was marred by rain. Impressed with fans’ innovative choice, the ICC gave them the title of “best dressed up award”. Tweeting about the same, ICC wrote: “The best dress up award on day two goes to #AUSvIND |.”
