Australia Vs India 2023 - Tour Itinerary

Australian Cricket Tours - A Giant Board At Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus In Mumbai Displays The 'Itinerary' Of Trains In Hindi

Australian Vs India 2023 - EXAMPLE Tour Itinerary

An Australian Cricket Tour to India is always much-wanted and looked forward to by many, more so when it has been 6 years since our last salvo. Knowing in 2017 that we would play in 2022, then pushed back to 2023 due to C19, it amazes us no end that we wait so long for a fixture to be confirmed, often not until 2 months before the first ball.

Even then, once a fixture is confirmed, the likelihood of this changing in the weeks prior the first ball are high. In our 25 years of watching Australian Test Cricket in India, every 'confirmed fixture' has changed, even for reasons foreseen.

If you want to guarantee an 11th hour fixture change, wait until you book your flights.The next day you'll find out where you needed to fly. It is infuriating, but part of cricket in India.

With the time taken to confirm schedules you wouldn't be wrong in thinking there were heated committees day after day nutting it out, but changing cities and/or dates a few days or weeks after confirmation makes the debating pointless.

We know that and move on. Though we now know we are playing in Nagpur, New Delhi, Dharamsala, and Ahmedabad, we still don't know when.

To give you an idea how our Australian Cricket Tour to India 2023 will look, we have created this ‘example itinerary’ based around one very-important date.

Saturday March 18, 2023 (TBC) - Day 1 of IPL 2023

Our itinerary has been worked back from this date, presuming there will be one week break after the ODI's, before IPL starts.

    AUSTRALIA VS INDIA 2023 - EXAMPLE TOUR ITINERARY

    Welcome to Chandigarh

    The City Beautiful. The most organised, clean, and spacious city in India, with long wide boulevards and lots of green is the least likely to ever need a Metro. Nonetheless a rapid-transit system is on the cards to make getting to and from cricket at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali, in year's to come, even easier. Having first watched cricket here in 1996, we always enjoy Chandigarh ane we are sure you will too. We hope to visit again in 2022.

    Welcome To Kolkata

    For wont of a better expression, Kolkata is one British occupation's great legacies. From cathedrals, forts, monuments, and marvellous architecture, you can invest a week in Kolkata without seeing a ball bowled. If you have the chance, a day of cricket at Eden Gardens with India's most fierce & parochial supporters will sort you out, and beg you to come back for more. It will have been more than 21 years since the Australia Cricket Tour To India played in Kolkata so we have fingers crossed to finally return to this epic stadium.

    Welcome to Port Blair

    Even Marco Polo kept a wide berth around the Andaman & Nicobar Islands, scared by indigenous islanders whom did not welcome tourism. As it is, they still don't with remote islands off-limits to Australian Cricket Tourists... and others. What isn't off limits is Port Blair. In 1996 there was one flight from Chennai. Now with daily flights from New Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Vizag, and Kolkata, tourism is burgeoning in this stunning archipeligo of 572 islands ringed with crystal waters, coral reefs, white sands, and swimming elephants. This 4 night trip is 'beach oriented' as a soothing break from our epic Indian Railways timetable.

     Welcome to Bengaluru

    Perhaps our favourite city & stadium in India, where Australia has played every Test Series in the last 25 years except for 2001 and 2013. Thus the familiarity and fondness makes cricket life in this silicon valley of India even more enjoyable. Far from the energy of the game at mighty Chinnaswamy, the parks, tree lined streets, semi-orderly traffic, and impressive architecture throughout India's 3rd largest city are worth drinking too in famed Brigade road. The epi-centre of entertainment where locals do not club, they 'lounge'. Brigade Rd is a hubbub of restaurants, pubs, cafes, greasy spoons and guesthouses just down MG Road from our awesome hotel.

    Welcome to Mumbai

    Big, Bold, Bad, Beautiful Bombay, as many locals still call this dynamic city. After many Australian Cricket Tours to India, we both arrive into and call the city Mumbai by default. However you refer India's largest city that is home to India's smallest intl. cricket stadium (per capita) you need to visit no matter where the game takes you. From touristy Colaba to the glitz of Bandra, experience the outdoor laundry at Mahalaxmi, sunset food sellers of Chowpatty, handicrafts in Colaba, stone temples on Elephanta, cricket on Oval Maidan, and wonders of British architecture, namely Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus. There is unequal vibrancy that a chilled Kingfisher on a rooftop bar won't soothe.
