About International Cricket Tours

International Cricket Tours is all about marrying two of life’s greatest pleasures – travel and cricket.

Established in 2011 our innovative, group escorted tours offer fantastic travel experiences whilst following cricket around the world with exclusive access to the best tickets, perfect for people who have unrivalled love for the sport.

Packed with special touches and little extras, our expert tour managers will show you the true character of each cricketing destination and take you above and beyond the norm.

Our well-established reputation for offering an excellent touring experience covers not only the professional men’s and women’s Test, T20 and ODI series tours but also training and development tours for clubs and schools.

Founder and Managing Director Sara Malin, has been on the world cricket tour scene since the early ‘80s and International Cricket Tours was set up as a sister brand to Prestige World, her luxury travel company, to offer high-end travel experiences for the kind of cricket fan who appreciates the personal touch. Expect well-chosen hotels, seamless travel and ticketing arrangements and guest appearances by a few famous faces from cricket teams past and present.

Importantly, International Cricket Tours also arrange exciting overseas playing tours for clubs and schools offering training and professional mentoring opportunities – all of which helps to develop the pipeline of future talent and cricket fans alike. Further demonstrating our dedication to the sport we have been official partner to the Lord’s Taverners, the UK’s leading youth cricket and disability sports charity, and we regularly support the Cricketer Village Cup Professional Cricketers Association and a Chance to Shine.

We’re a small team based in Chiswick, south-west London, but we have a wealth of excellent destination knowledge and our aim is to give you an unforgettable cricket holiday experience whatever the result on the field! Tour extensions are our speciality so if you see something you like and want to do it a little bit differently then please give us a call on 020 3824 8444.

Back in the early ’80s my sister invited me to accompany her and a small party of cricketers to Barbados. I’d never been to the Caribbean before so I set aside some time to think about it… two seconds later I said ‘yes please’. Some months later I was enjoying winter sunshine in heavenly surroundings, mixing with famous cricketers, soaking up the West Indies cricket vibe and wondering how I could have more of this in my life.

Back in the UK I kept in touch with the cricketers I’d met and put the wheels in motion to leave the John Lewis Partnership and start my career in sports travel. Since then, cricket has taken me all over the world, I have personally visited all the destinations and practically all the resorts we work with and I pride myself on maintaining excellent grass-roots relationships that, of course, ultimately benefit the people who book with us.

At the heart of my passion then and today is seeing fans of the game experience the unique thrills of those big international cricketing occasions in some of the world’s most spectacular locations. So it was with great surprise and pride that I accepted the ‘Best Cricket Tour Company 2016’ award* on behalf of my company, International Cricket Tours. Yesss! Award-winning service and products is what we’re all about.

As a young boy I grew up supporting  Surrey watching the likes of John Edrich & Robin Jackman, over the Years Surrey had many great players and was lucky to regulary watch the likes of Sylvester Clarke , Waqar Younis, Alec Stewart & Graham Thorpe.

I always loved watching test cricket on TV and listening to the great John Arnott &  Brian Johnson giving the rundown on particular busses passing the Oval and vividly describing the cakes in the commentary box! This would come amidst  the description of   cover drive from Geoff Boycott.  Fast forward to 2002 when I decided to go to  Australia for the Ashes and  have not looked back since, I went back again in 2007.

In 2015 I met Sara. At the time I had no real concept of what she did. But very soon in our relationship I met Sir Gary Sobers, stood next to Ian Botham at a Taverners VIP do which Sara sponsored. and on a table for dinner with Robert Powell! Life has been a bit like that ever since. I have met so many great players from yesteryears and have become good friends with Chris Gayle. Later that year I went with Sara to Durban and Cape Town, and learnt the art of tour management!

After the tour of the Caribbean with the Ashes coming up fast, I was offered the role of tour manager and have since been involved in the selection of merchandise, write the blog, run the Whats App groups and regularly keep in touch with clients who have become good friends. I have now also toured India, Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka.

I look forward to meeting you on tour.

I have been lucky enough to be travelling on England overseas cricket tours for more than a decade. My first away tour was to Australia and the 2006/7 Ashes Tour. A fantastic country to first experience the highs and lows (England lost 5-0) of an absorbing Test match series. I began working on cricket tours soon after with Sport Abroad on their West Indies tour of 2009. Since then I have been involved in some capacity on every major overseas England cricket tour. After 4 years with Sport Abroad I switched to another TUI brand, Thomson Sport, and became their Tour Co-ordinator for ‘Barmy Travel’. As the appointed ‘official’ partner with the Barmy Army, I was primarily responsible for creating, selling and operating their overseas touring programme until 2016 when I joined International Cricket Tours. All of the cricket touring destinations are fabulous to experience but if I had to choose a favourite it would be South Africa. It has every thing from great stadiums to stunning scenery and is a great all round value for money destination.

I have always been involved in cricket for as long as I remember, whether that be watching Gloucestershire at the Cheltenham Cricket Festival or hitting a windball into the neighbours back garden at a young age, cricket has always been a passion of mine.

I started playing club cricket at age 9, and from there my love of the game has only grown. So much so, that I decided that a career in cricket tours was what I needed!

In reality I think my dad is to blame for my cricket obsession. My parents took me to Antigua in 2007 for the 50 over World Cup. We were lucky enough to be sharing a beachside hotel with the England, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh teams. I was totally starstruck! This is where the highlight of my cricketing career came from – being bowled out in beach cricket by Muttiah Muralitharan!

Since Antigua, I have toured Barbados, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand for various events, so I have a good understanding of each destination. This destination knowledge is very useful for both England supporter tours, as well as clubs and schools playing tours.

In the summer months, you are likely to find me watching England at various English cricket grounds. Living in Gloucestershire, I mostly attend Edgbaston, along with a love of Trent Bridge. This may have something to do with the world record that I witnessed there in 2018. 481/6 against Australia, I thought that I’d never see anything like it again. Then I was lucky enough to be in Amsterdam working on the England 50 over 3 match series. Jos Buttler’s 162* from 70 balls was just unbelievable. There was something quite satisfying about watching the Netherlands players looking in the bushes for the match ball – something that I see at village level every Saturday!

If you are interested in discussing any of our England supporter tours, a club or school playing tour, or even just a chat about cricket, I am available on 07795159684 or at bookings@ictours.co.uk

I have recently returned to the UK after living in South Africa for the past 8 years. While living in Cape Town I began working within the travel industry. My first position was within the reservations and groups departments for a local inbound travel operator, before moving onto Edusport Travel and Tours.

I was part of a team that specialised in sporting tours both in South Africa and abroad. The company was responsible for organising supporter packages for many different sports including the FIFA World Cup and the Rugby World Cup. We also worked with UK operators who organised trips into South Africa for tours like the British and Irish Lions and when England brought over the fans for the cricket test matches in the summer.

My travel industry experiences have sent me to different countries operating a variety of sporting tours. I am now looking forward to working at
International Cricket Tours and assisting you with your touring needs.

My love for cricket started at a very young age back in 2005, mirroring Hoggard and Harmison running in to bowl in my living room and watching the Ashes being brought back to its rightful home.

I played cricket all the way through my schooling, both in the UK and South Africa, and even had trials for Eastern Province. Sadly due to a mis-timed shot to long-on, I was sent home for an early shower.

I have worked in the travel industry for nearly 10 years and still enjoy every minute of it. Who doesn’t love sitting in the sun abroad, with a beer in hand, knowing everyone back home is sitting in the cold and miserable weather that we have become so a custom to in the UK.

Being able to combine my experience and knowledge of travel, along with my passion for cricket and sport in general, makes work such an enjoyable experience: from building amazing holidays to experiencing everything first-hand on tour with our clients.
