Melbourne Housing Estate With Streets Named After Cricketing Legends
An upcoming housing estate in Melbourne’s western suburb of Rockbank has named all its streets after cricketing legends from around the world. Streets have been named after cricketing legends such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli and Steve Waugh among others.
Besides Tendulkar Drive and Kohli Crescent, the other streets in the estate have been named Waugh Street (Former Australian Captain Steve Waugh), Sobers Drive (West Indies great Sir Garry Sobers), Kallis Way (South African Batsman Jack Kallis), Dev Terrace (India’s former Captain Kapil Dev), Hadlee Street (New Zealand’s former cricketer Sir Richard John Hadlee), Akram Way (Pakistan’s former Captain Waseem Akram) among others.
City of Melton Mayor Cr Lara Carli said it was great to see a positive response to these names. “It seems these cricket-themed names are already popular with cricket fans in our community and beyond. “It’s great to see a positive response to these names, and it’s something I’m sure the developer and surrounding residents can be proud of.”
Melbourne-based property consultant Vivek Handa said the street name is not enough to convince people to buy a property. “In my opinion, it doesn’t matter what the name of the street is. When people plan to buy land or house they check many other parameters.
