Galle sitting on the Fort would be awesome
Newlands
Lord's
Eden Gardens if it was full would be incredible

been lucky enough to have gone to :-

Adelaide Oval , MCG , SCG

Jade Stadium (Christchurch) , loved Basin Reserve (Wellington) & Eden Park (Auckland)

Sabina Park was rocking when they took 3 quick wickets , Sir IVA Richards Stadium , Bridgetown (Barbados)

which I had went years before when the Windies were stronger and the crowds were there

Mohali & Bangalore to see Tendulkar make a double century live will stay with me forever.

Have you seen anything on Twitter about the start of the SCG test being pushed back ?

Daily Telegraph has a article but I can't access it.
Sounds like it will start on the 7th Jan at this stage.

https://www.espncricinfo.com/story/...dia-test-series-start-pink-ball-game-adelaide

The four-Test series between Australia and India later this year is set to start with a day-night Test in Adelaide. The long tour (more than two months) is likely to begin with the white-ball games, three ODIs in Brisbane followed by three T20Is in Adelaide and then the first Test, subject to final nods from the local state governments in Australia.

The pink-ball Test, which will be India's maiden day-night Test overseas (and only their second overall), is scheduled to be held at Adelaide Oval between December 17 and 21. Melbourne will remain the venue for the traditional Boxing Day Test (December 26-30) followed by Tests in Sydney (January 7-11) and Brisbane (January 15-19).

Any Intel on Will Jacks ?
Don't really know much about him.

but from a quick google search - Seems headed to the Hurricanes for the first 5 games as a replacement player for Malan.

Jacks was the Blast’s most valuable player, scoring 309 runs and taking 14 wickets.

Bats 3 and bowls off spin would be a fantasy gem prob be priced at $125k

Edit -
"Will Jacks made headlines in March last year when he blasted a century from just 25 deliveries in a 10-over practice match in Dubai - an innings that included six successive sixes off the one over - which is believed to be the fastest century between two professional teams."

wow even if it was a practice match still very good.

Found some highlights after posting , another left field Larry by the look of things but sure can hit a ball.

I might have to see if my ECB contact is still working and try and get a update about their proposed white ball tour to South Africa and if their preXmas Test camp is going to go ahead in the UAE.

Have a feeling trying to get OS players here for the Big Bash is going to be a logistical nightmare with quarantine and hubs.

Still think would have been easier for CA to relocate to the UAE for the Indian series and Big Bash.
