World Cup Travel Diaries – Umang

You might have been wondering why we’ve been so silent these past few weeks. After all, it’s the marquee event in the cricket calendar.

Well one of us has been off following the Indian cricket team in Oz. The other one has been…well…drowning at work (sad, I know).

Anyway, the group stage is out of the way.

6 out of 6.

Not a bad gig for a team that was struggling to put bat on ball (and was putting way too much ball on bat) not so long ago.

Tomorrow is the first of the knockouts for us – India v Bangladesh – so we thought it would be a good time to take a look back.

Therefore, with a lot of help from Umang (a senior and friend of ours from school) see below the first instalment of the WORLD CUP TRAVEL DIARIES!

Umang’s World Cup travel diary 

In 2011 I bought tickets to the WC in India about a year in advance. Plane tickets 8 months in advance. Train tickets 2 months in advance. Then planned a trip to India (full on Bharast Darshan) and travelled the length and breadth of the country with Basu, one of my oldest friends.

So obviously with the WC coming ‘home’ to Australia, I was hoping for an encore. Planning started a year in advance again, many things fell apart along the way. But all was well in the end.

Hi MS,

Hope you’re keeping well.

Sorry about you getting thrashed by England today. Duncan and I have put our considerable brains together and have come up with a master-plan to help India retain the World Cup.
