Has anyone been over here for a cricket tour?
If yes, what should I expect from the teams out there.

hard pitches, short pitch bowling, rough outfields and a massive amount of fun.
if you are being offered the chance grab it with both hands.

That means I'm in the market for a bat with a high middle!

I think you will need all new kit to be honest!

If it is anything like Jamaica, the pitches will be hard, but very slow, and you'll face far less quick bowling than you expect. Watching the melbourne youngsters practice, there was more spin than pace!

I went there 10 years ago on a Uni tour, it's brilliant. People were really friendly, especially when they knew we played cricket.

Can't remember some of the teams we played but we got thoroughly hammered in all our games as we had a pretty average team. Played against banks brewery, bajan army and other teams. You might find yourself against some good players, we played against some Barbados players and almost faced pedro Collins.

Make sure you go to Mullins bay as it's the best beach.
