Boland, a Gulidjan man, believes bringing cricket to remote areas will help get more indigenous children through the trail system.

The Gullijan man visited Uluru as part of the trophy's domestic and international tour, where he played red cricket with students from Nyangattiatjara Yulari College.
Against the backdrop of one of Australia's most iconic cultural landmarks, Boland said playing red cricket was a first for him.
"I've never played cricket on red clay so it was really cool to bowl with some kids who had never played cricket," he said.
"Passing on some knowledge to you was a highlight and something I will never forget."
"I think growing the game of cricket is really important," said Boland, who brought the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022 Trophy to Uluru alongside former cricketer Shane Watson.
“The more we can go to remote areas, where cricket is not the number one sport like in big cities, to give these children the opportunity to play and learn about what is at stake, the more indigenous children we become through the trail system ."

Speaking of his first experience of playing cricket on Red Dirt, Boland said: “I've never played cricket on Red Dirt so it was pretty cool to bowl in front of some kids who haven't played much cricket in their life and to put some knowledge on beforehand Sharing them was a highlight and something I will never forget."
The ICC Men's T20 World Cup will be held later this year from October 16th to November 13th with 16 teams from across Australia in seven host cities.
