Blind Cricket has been played in Australia since 1922. Its early origins were in Prahran, Victoria where a group of blind and vision impaired people came up with the idea of putting some rocks in a can and using it as a ball. Today, Blind Cricket Australia oversees competitions in all mainland states and is developing the game in Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
