It’s been a hectic year for us and there seems no let up. The last couple of months we have been preparing behind the scenes on four fronts -NZ, SA, SL + Aus and all that after two very busy and successful tours to Sri Lanka & the Caribbean! South Africa winter tour is finally on sale and bookings over the bank holiday are rivalling last years WI tour.
After the tragedy in Sri Lanka it puts everything into prospective, we have been in constant contact with them. Everyone survived that awful day of events and they are gradually getting back to normality and are focussing on positive things like planning the next cricket tour in March 2020!
The eagerly awaited World Cup starts this week, but me being me will be in Azerbaijan! Believe me you’ve read about the distance and complexity of this trip, but imagine how we are in the office being a tour company that puts together bespoke trips adding any variation desired by our wonderful clients.
As the World Cup begins we have just been informed that we have been officially appointed agents for the forthcoming T20 World Cup in 2020. One of only 20 worldwide. The T20 World Cup is over 6 Weeks and England are playing in all the best locations starting in the new Perth stadium. You’ll have opportunity to go on a tour around the wonderful WACA. I love Perth and happen to know a great pub called the Lucky Shag and I just happen to know a great Indian eatery there too! The 2nd match is probably my favourite ground in the world overseas – the SCG against South Africa. Then we play India at the MCG Melbourne. By now your appetite must be wetted! We then travel to Brisbane and the Gabba against Afghanistan followed by the Adelaide Oval. Hopefully we will play a semi final in Adelaide or Sydney with the final at the MCG Melbourne. What an amazing trip!, I’m really looking forward to going back to Oz.The only issue is there are too many Australians, joking aside, it’s a fabulous country and what better way to see Australia? We will of course be adding extras to the trip to suit every budget! You’ll be notified when the tour is available which should be later this week – we have it all planned and the tickets in place..
So get behind the boys this summer, it promises to be an amazing summer of cricket, the World Cup will be special, we have the most amazing side. I think we are strong favourites for the title. I’ve seen us wipe the board with the best sides! 15/8 fav is about right, we are that good.For the Ashes have your sandpaper at the ready. You’ve all been given stick in life, can you imagine how much smith and Warner will go through!!
All the best Gary
