, Australian Cricketers’ Secret Room at Sydney Cricket Ground Revealed

Hidden Oasis for Aussie Aces

Australian cricketers had a secret room at the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground where they could unwind and enjoy a cold drink after matches. Former player Brett Lee recently spilled the beans on this hidden oasis, which was accessed by a special knock on the door.

The Sydney Cricket Ground's Well-Kept Secret

The Sydney Cricket Ground, known for its electric atmosphere and hosting memorable cricket moments, also had a secret room tucked away from the prying eyes of the public. This hidden gem had crates of beer and wine, providing a tranquil space for players to relax and speak openly.

The Ritual

After a test win at the SCG, players would grab a cricket bat and give three taps on the floor, signaling their desire to visit the secret cellar. Soon after, they would hear the same sound from downstairs, indicating that it was time to head to the cellar. Located beneath the Australian players' change rooms, players would enter through a small garage door.

A Piece of Cricketing History

Inside the secret cellar, players would find a door signed by every Test cricketer since the 1950s, adding to the aura and tradition of the space. There, they could enjoy a cold beer and engage in conversations with the ground staff.

For Brett Lee, being in the secret cellar with his cricketing heroes was a pinch-me moment. He found himself surrounded by legends of the game, such as Steve and Mark Waugh, Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, and more. It was a unique opportunity to bond with his childhood idols and celebrate their shared love for the sport.

Despite the secrecy surrounding the room, Lee couldn't resist sharing this fascinating insight into the cricketing world's traditions and camaraderie.
