Streets of an upcoming housing estate in Melbourne have been named after crickets. They are located in the Rockbank Suburb Melton City Council.
Talking to SBS Hindi, the property developer Varun Sharma revealed that inquiries doubled after the initiative to name streets after cricketers.
“As soon as we announced street names after cricketers, the inquiries doubled,” said Sharma. "Who would not like to live on Kohli crescent? You never know Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli might drive by the street when he is in Melbourne this December."
The streets covered an array of legendary cricketers with names such as Akram Way, Hadlee Street, Tendulkar Drive, Akhtar Avenue, Inzamam Street, Kohli Crescent, Sobers Drive and Dev Terrace.
City of Melton Mayor Cr Lara Carli was happy with the overwhelming response to the initiative.
“Street names in our City are usually submitted by developers and approved by Council if they meet Office of Geographic Names guidelines.
