When Ireland and United Arab Emirates face off in a one-day international for the first time, in their Pool B match of the 2015 World Cup at the Brisbane Cricket Ground, it will be with the backdrop of the larger picture.

The match will see cricket return to the city after Cyclone Marcia affected around 69,500 families in Queensland and forced Australia's game against Bangladesh to be abandoned.
