CANBERRA Comprar Nike Air Max 1 Negras , Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- Big Bash League (BBL) organizers are contemplating an Australian-first Christmas Day cricket match, in an effort to capture a lucrative, U.S-like audience, local media reported on Tuesday.

The idea Comprar Nike Air Max Thea Negras , which is in the early stages of planning, would result in a standalone feature match to be played on Christmas Day, similar to how the NBA and NFL in the United States schedule feature matches for the holiday.

Head of the BBL in Australia, Anthony Everard Comprar Nike Air Max 95 Negras , told the Australian Associated Press that the Twenty20 match could capture a huge television audience as Christmas Day celebrations wind down in the late afternoon.

"There's certainly a precedent over in the U.S. - they're very popular events," Everard said on Tuesday.

"There's no question there would be strong demand on television for a game on Christmas Day but that's not reason enough on its own for us to contemplate it - it needs to fit into the bigger picture."

Everard said any potential match would not just be a "novelty," with his team reportedly pursuing ways to factor in a Christmas charity drive to give greater meaning to the game.

"I think what the BBL does is give you an opportunity to innovate... I think it's a case of 'never say never'," Everard said.

"If we were to contemplate it I think we'd want to be pretty clear on what the objective was and that's not as a novelty or just playing another game because there's no other content on that day."

The BBL had some very preliminary thoughts on "whether or not we could align with a children's charity Comprar Nike Air Max Negras ," he added.

The BBL has had remarkable success in its five years of operation; this season, the winning team with receive 640,000 U.S. dollars in prizemoney compared to 209,000 dollars last season.

For more than a century, Australia's test cricket team has played a Test match on Boxing Day, but Everard said a fresh, exciting cricket league like the BBL was the perfect platform for a Christmas showpiece - he said the league would be happy to push the boundaries and test the waters.

"There's a fair bit of thinking that needs to be done before we would contemplate that Comprar Nike Air Max TN Blancas , but BBL is all about innovation and we'll keep an open mind," he said.

GENEVA, Sept. 21 (Xinhua) -- The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) Wednesday launched a 15.5 million U.S. dollars emergency appeal to reach more than 163,000 people affected by the destructive floods that struck the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) three weeks ago.
