"A bit more focus on cricket and a little less focus on politics would be my message to Cricket Australia", Prime Minister Scott Morrison told a radio station Thursday in Rockhampton, central Queensland state.

The majority of members are Aboriginal and Indigenous people, and all on the committee were on the same page in dropping the Australia Day terminology.

CA will refer to January 26 instead of Australia Day in its material.

"Ultimately I think if we got it right, people who have traditionally come to the cricket on that day and have had a ripping day shouldn't notice anything different".

Three BBL teams will also wear Indigenous-design jerseys in matches on or leading up to the day.

"As the leader of the country, he has an example to set for the rest of the nation and he should know better". "Suffering is not a competition". What the Prime Minister has said makes no sense.

"How can we expect to see real progress on issues such as Reconciliation and Closing the Gap when he makes such ignorant and unhelpful comments like this?" the Wiradjuri girl tweeted.

Another of Mr Morrison's critics - Labor MP Graham Perrett - pointed out there were actually only 11 ships in the First Fleet.

'Luckily our prime minister doesn't have an electorate connected with this event, ' Mr Perrett said sarcastically.

Cricket Australia will refer to next week's Big Bash extravaganza as "January 26" rather than "Australia Day", after consulting Indigenous leaders.

CA passed this recommendation onto the six BBL clubs playing that day, the Brisbane Heat, Perth Scorchers, Melbourne Renegades, Hobart Hurricanes, Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers, but there is no edict for them to drop the Australia Day terminology and they're free to promote the match as they see fit. "But I mean, that's what they're putting on their press releases".

The initiatives come from CA's National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cricket Advisory Committee (NATSICOC), in a bid to normalise conversation about January 26's history.

A barefoot circle, welcome to country and smoking ceremony will take place before some games.

He spoke about the experience of those aboard the First Fleet, who raised the Union Jack for the first time on January 26, 1788 after arriving the previous week.

It added the decision was in recognition of it being a "day of mourning" for many indigenous players.

Cricket Australia Diversity and Inclusion manager Adam Cassidy said the aim is to draw a balance between supporting Indigenous communities without making drastic moves like stopping cricket on January 26.

"When you are a business operating under a Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan, it does come with responsibility and accountability to lead on key reconciliation issues".

Cricket Australia joins a growing list of lawmakers, councils, businesses and others who have distanced themselves from the holiday in recent years. "In an ideal world what we're trying to do is create a safe and inclusive environment for everybody".
