The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Saturday hailed the creativity of a set of fans, who arrived at the Gabba in Brisbane wearing costumes of famous Star Wars characters. A bunch of fans were seen dressed as Stormtroopers wearing their famous white attire, while one man was seen standing in the middle, dressed in black costume of main villain Darth Vader. The fans had come dressed in the attire to watch Day 2 of the fourth Test between Australia and India, which was marred by rain. Impressed with fans’ innovative choice, the ICC gave them the title of “best dressed up award”.

“The best dress up award on day two goes to #AUSvIND |,” the ICC tweeted.
The official Twitter handle of cricket.com.au also tweeted a GIF of a platoon of stormtroopers walking to the venue, with their leader Darth Vader standing in the middle.
“Completely normal Brisbane behaviour #AUSvIND,” read the caption.
