Oh gee look out, he's thrown the big high 5!

Domestic Season 2007/2008Fanatics

All grounds & matches now on sale

Australia is set for a huge summer of cricket in 2007/8 as we welcome Sri Lanka and India to our shores. Our standing as undisputed world champions in both forms of the game is well and truly intact after dominating the World Cup in the Caribbean and whitewashing the Poms 5 nil in the Ashes mismatch.

Once again for this season the Fanatics Bay will be in full swing. Since the Fanatics Bay started in the summer of 2003/04 over 23,000 punters have joined us around Australia.

Last year with the scramble for tickets in an Ashes year it was difficult in some states particularly Sydney & Melbourne to keep the Bay to true Fanatics who are there for the same purpose. So this year we've made a few changes which will think will improve things & keep the Bay for like minded Australian fans - we're sure you will enjoy them.

Get in soon though some venues like the WACA & GABBA are now filling up. Click here for info on this years Fanatics Bays

7 matches in 20 days is a cricketing smorgasbord!

The searing heat, noise, smells, crowds. India – home to a billion people - is like no other place on earth.

For the Australian team, to play and win in the dusty cauldrons in this part of the world is the ultimate challenge in international cricket.

We first toured India in 1996 for the 'Wills' Cricket World Cup & each time we return we have enjoyed the changes & development undertaken in the country.

After organising 6 seperate cricket tours to India over the last decade we can promise you a sensational trip & we'll be imparting our wealth of knowledge. If you love cricket then you will love India!
