right, I think I might be sorted. Looking at maybe flying to Sydney for a couple of days, then over to Wellington for the 2nd Test then fly up to Auckland for a few days before flying home :D

The only problem with just doing one game is that it's a long way to go if the game is affected by external factors (such as rain).

I did one test in the Carribean in 2009 and chose Antigua!

I'm with Bikini on this one... I actually live in Auckland and I'm more likely to be going to the Basin Reserve Test than Eden Park...

Anyone know the capacities of the test grounds. I should imagine there won't be a problem getting a tkt for Eden Park.

Normally in the UK I would attend as much as time/money would allow, however on this occasion it is the three tests for me..

In answer to you question Fernado, I think I read that Eden Pk is 56,00, Wellington is 10,000 and Dunedin 3,000...... Big caveat on those figures though !

Dunedin was mentioned as going to double their capacity with temporary stands.... watching their recent test series against SA, the ground looked like the Whitgift ground Surrey use to play their festival cricket on, with a stand included !

Personally I will try and book the Dunedin tickets prior to arriving, me thinks both Wellington and Auckland should be ok to book upon arrival in the City...... unless someone informs me otherwise ! ;)

Hope that helps !

Can't see many doing too many of the ODI's, just not worth the hassle for one day at that distance. Obviously some will attach some games to their test itinerary, but as is often said the majority on here are 'test men' and will design their trips predominantly around those.
There will always be the ex-pats and travellers who generally make up some percentage at any England game, you definetly wo'nt be on your lonesome.

thanks for that, take in a few quieter games before a few come over for the tests. also, as a first timer watching england overseas, whats the crack on a night time? i take it there will be some alcohol consumed between everyone?
