Australian Cricket Tours - A Pakistan Ranger At The Border Gate Between Pakistan and India, Wagah, Lahore, Pakistan

Border Closing Ceremony

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.
Australian Cricket Tours - A Jingle Bus On The Streets Of Peshawar, Peshawar

Pakistan Jingle Buses

'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.
Markets Of Pettah

Markets Of Pettah

With the love of food, exploring the markets of India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka as we follow cricket around the world, is never a bore. One of our favourite markets are those of Pettah in Colombo, Sri Lanka, ever since our first visit in 1999.
Australian Cricket Tours - A Little Boy Washing Himself In The Laundry, Karachi, Pakistan, 1998

Keeping Clean In Karachi

With the pleasure of watching Australia last play Test Cricket in Pakistan, 1998, I also had the unique pleasure of visiting the world's largest outdoor laundry, where families too live and wash.
Australian Cricket Tours - Aggressive Youth Taxi Service, Our Transport To Bourda Oval, Georgetown, Guyana, In 2003

Uber In Guyana 2003

The name says it all about this Georgetown 'public service'. The passion displayed in the business name is exactly what is needed - 'catchy, unique, and memorable'. To young Winston's credit, his is unique!
Australia In Bangladesh

Australia In Bangladesh

On the eve of Australia's Test Cricket Tour to Bangladesh 2020, I found this photo from my first visit to 'Bewdiful Bangers' in 2005. Negotiating my way into the 'Shipbreaking Yards of Bhatiari Beach (easier then than now!), Chittagong, I found this young fellow taking a break.
Rainbow Nation

Rainbow Nation

The South Africa Flag is one the more colourful of world cricket and with each Australia Cricket Tour to South Africa, more and more flags are being waved by their people, as they support their lads on the field.
Australian Cricket Tours - An Indian Police Officer Leans Against The Boxing Kangaroo Flag Wrapped Around A Pillar In Chepauk Stadium, Chennai, India

Always Two Sides

This ageless photo from Chennai, India reminds me of a 'conversation' I had with a bloke at Old Trafford during Australia's Ashes Cricket Tour Of England 2019. Getting out my flag out, this bloke from behind stated, "That flag better not touch me!"

Australian Cricket Tours - Boys Playing Snooker On A Road-side Snooker Table In Multan, Pakistan

Chalk Your Queues

With fondness I remember Australia's 1998 Test Cricket Tour to Pakistan. Since then, among other unique pleasures, I've missed playing snooker in the streets of Multan.
Australian Cricket Tours - Kevin Hawking Our 400th Flagger With Brad Haddin Australia's 400th Test Cricketer

Our 400th Flagger

To acknowledge the support and trust people put in our tour group formerly known as 'Waving The Flag', we inaugurated 'The Flaggy Green' on the Australian Cricket Tour of South Africa in 2006. Since 1995 we welcomed 650 Flaggers before we lowered 'The Flag' after the 2016 Australia Cricket Tour of Sri Lanka.
Australian Cricket Tours - Mickey Mouse Looking On As A Bangladeshi Video Clip Is Being Produced

Wonderland Dhaka

Many may doubt there is a 'Wonderland Dhaka', but when on any Australian Cricket Tour we seek unique attractions so Pete, Melinda, and I visited this tacky adventure playland. It was not for the slower than walking dodgem cars but to see the aircraft that crashed at Dhaka Airport that was now in the park as a restaurant!
Australian Cricket Tours - Peter Holt Looks At His Watch Whilst Waving His Australian Flag, Wondering What Time Play Would Re-Start In Chittagong, During The Australia V Bangladesh Test Match In 2006

At The 3rd Stroke

Besides the consistent lack of 90 overs bowled in a day's play, one of my biggest bug-bears following cricket is match timings. No more confusing were the timings of Day 1 in Chittagong, during Australia's Test Cricket Tour of Bangladesh in 2006.
