I'm hoping for a start date of the 3rd to minimise travel/work disruption, but I'm tipping it'll be the 5th, given that's the Thursday. Needing dates so that I can book flights@Clint I don't know mate. I don't think they have released actual dates for the upcoming summer. There's a massive amount of cricket on because of the T20 world cup at end of year.
All I know is we are playing Windies and Saffers in test series. Normally the Sydney test starts around the 3rd or 4th of January, but it can be a day or two later.
We haven't played South Africa at SCG for over 10 years. I'm looking forward to it. They have been doing their own boxing day test tradition for a few years now and haven't toured here over Xmas / New Year for quite a while. We haven't played them at all since the sandpaper scandal which was 4 years ago - my how time flies
Nice. That'd be an experience for sure. I would love to go to Sri Lanka. Not only to see the country but to incorporate a cricket tour. Couldn't pull it off this year as eyeing off next year's Ashes in the UK!I think I am going to try and cross something off the bucket list next year - watching a test in India. Just need to get it past the Chair of the Ranga Household Investment Committee.
Sri Lanka would be unreal, and I have heard amazing things about it as a country to visit. But I think this year could be a bit dicey - the economic crisis is causing a lot of political and social unrest - and I would not be surprised if our tour is cancelled.Nice. That'd be an experience for sure. I would love to go to Sri Lanka. Not only to see the country but to incorporate a cricket tour.
