Cricket In The West Indies
There was a time when you could guaranteed an Australian Cricket Tour to the West Indies would include a Test Match in Antigua and Barbados, back when there was only 5 Test venues. Today, it is a sheer luck if we play on either of these outstanding islands. When we play in Antigua, we always enjoy an all-inclusive day trip with our friends Wadadli Cats, on the cobalt blue waters and take in a spot of catching practice for good measure.
Depending on where you do it, catching tennis balls can be as boring as catching a bus but there is something uniquely special about diving to catch a tennis ball above the Caribbean Sea. If we don't play cricket in Antigua we will enjoy 3-4 days on this stunning island between Tests because you can't travel to the West Indies and not enjoy the spirit of life of Antigua and some of their 365 beaches!
