Indigenous cricketers out to impress at Imparja Cup

Updated 21 February 2013, 10:03 AEDT

More than 500 Indigenous cricketers are in Alice Springs in Australia's Red Centre to compete in the annual Imparja Cup.

New South Wales is bidding for a hat trick of titles in both the men's and women's competitions.

Historically Indigenous cricketers have struggled to reach the highest levels of the game, with very few playing professionally at state level, and almost none have made it to the Australian national team.

But Cricket Australia's National Talent Manager, former Test Captain, Greg Chappell, who is in the Alice to cast his eye over the players on view, says he's keen to see more Indigenous players make an impact.
