Streets in Melbourne suburb to be named after Indian cricketers

A new housing estate developed in Melbourne's Rockbank suburb will have street names like 'Tendulkar Drive', 'Kohli Crescent' and 'Dev Terrace', after legendary Indian cricketers to attract buyers from the Indian community. ÔÇ£Kohli is one of my favourite batsmen and I named the most expensive street after him," said Khurram Saeed, director of Resi Ventures, the estateÔÇÖs developers.
