Hi All,

I am living over here in NZ and have a good contact who was/is high up in Black Caps. He has informed me a few months back that the tet are 99% auckland wellington and Dunedin. Even with the recent issues over the museum stand at the basin he believes that the test will stay there as that stand only holds 1,000~.

As mentioned previously the tests are almost always after the ODI and T20 here so you can back the option of March. The dates were pencilled in to be announced this week but there has been a delay. I shall keep trying to fins out th edtes before the announcment to try and cut out the price hikes already discussed.




Booked 4 weeks from the 15 of Feb! hope the Test are First!!

I note the NZ tour dates to SA have been announced. So some progress, lets just hope ours are not far away.
Anyone booked to go to the Durban boxing day test, will be in for a surprise. There isn't one this year for the first time since re-addmittance. This has caused a lot of anger in Durban, as you can imagine. They are even playing a T20 on boxing day at PE. Very strange.

Very suprised about Boxing Day now being a T/20 fixture in PE rather than the traditional Durban test. Hopefully things will return to normality by the next time we are there.

Purely an economic decision. They will make more in a T20 than in a test match against the Black Caps. No slight intended.

Possibly, but I expect a boxing day test in Durban, would have brought in more revenue than a test in PE in the middle of January, when everybody is back at work. The reason given by the SA board, is that their results at Kingsmead have been poor over the last few years. Equally strange, as I would have thought that was due to team performance, not the venue.

Maybe England should have stopped playing Ashes Tests at Lord's from about the 1950s onwards!

E-mail to New Zealand Cricket:

I and many others are becoming concerned about the ongoing delays in announcing this tour schedule. I'm sure NZC can appreciate the commitment that many thousands of supporters make to following cricket around the world and many of us are keen to start making arrangements for this tour, including booking of flights, accommodation and annual leave from work.

Please could you give some indication of when the itinerary is likely to be made public, as this is the source of much speculation among travelling supporters.

Thanks in advance


Will update when/if I receive a response.
