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 just some of their 365 beaches!
