Do It Yourself Sporting Tours

August 7th, 2009 · No Comments · Cricket, Spectators, Sport

It is becoming popular for sporting fans to get together and fly around the world to support their team. Why pay so much when you can do it yourself for much cheaper? There is a big market for these tour groups and people pay way too much for the privilege. People pay thousands of dollars to join a cricket tour of India, where you can get by on as little as $10 a day. However, I admit that you do get plenty of extras from joining such a group, for example meeting some of the sports stars, getting priority entry, and good seats organised/guaranteed. You also don’t have to buy your own travel tickets and organise hotels. It is fun either way you go, but if you want to save money and make it an adventure, then do it yourself. I may even come along and do the self-guided tour with you! Careful, if you get too many of our mates together and it will become one of those tours you are trying to avoid!

Cricket survey in India

May 15th, 2006 · No Comments · Cricket

My wife and I went traveling in India at the end of last year. Once anyone found out that we were from Australia, they all wanted to talk cricket with us. We decided to take an informal poll with the people we met, about who was their favorite Australian cricketers. The most popular Australian (ex) player we talked about was Greg Chappel, as he was coaching the Indian national side. Out of the current team, a favorite was Steve Waugh, which was not surprising considering the work he does in India. Other top players were Adam Gilchrist and Ricky Ponting.
