Australian Cricket Tours To The West Indies are incomplete without Antigua & Barbuda included in the schedule. With 365 beaches on which to top up the bronze, round-island boat trips, and incredible diving, you don't need cricket to enjoy this amazing island.
The Taj Mahal is one of the world's 'must see' monuments. Whether on an Australian Cricket Tour To India or not, you have to see this magnificent white-marble tomb... from both sides of the Yamuna River (if you can)!
When going to Barbados for cricket, you can be inclined to say you are going for the rum shacks and time permitting taking in a day's play. Mount Gay distillery is a few blocks from Kensington Oval so balance your priorities!
Ater many years enjoying tour games the world over, the game in New Delhi 2001 was our first 'in-ground, in-seat service'. Shortly after our arrival, the waiter came to collect our order to kick-start our day.
Indian streetlife is filled with colour, noise, and wonderment. Around every corner you will see things (like this sign) that make you twist your head like a curious pooch hearing 'His Masters Voice' from the gramophone.
There are many facets of India that cause one to chuckle for no more reason than Indians say or display things differently. When on an Australian Cricket Tour To India, keep an open mind and your camera ready!
February 14, 2001, 'WavingTheFlag.com' went live. Created to present Australian Cricket Tours from our side of the fence, we shared tour reports, diaries, images, and postcards from an incredible cricket world. This was our first postcard!
Watching South Africa play in Karachi (28/01/21), celebrating the return of Test Cricket to Pakistan reminds me of the last Australian Cricket Tour of Pakistan, and my time in Karachi 1998. It was ambush marketing by definition.
The Pakistan India border closing 'beating retreat' at Wagah/Attari is a ferocious nightly event witnessed by more people than any other military ritual. A near 2-hour parade of parochial pride, culminates in the lowering and folding of each nation's flag.
'Jingle Buses' and 'Jingle Trucks' of Pakistan are a sight to behold and delight to hear as they melodically travel the roads of this amazing cricket country. The term comes from the 'Jingle' of steel discs and pendants, that hang underneath, dragging along the roads.
