When we think of India, we think of cricket; India is a passionate cricket nation. This is signified by India hosting the World Cup three times, and winning the competition twice, as well as the Board of Control for Cricket in India being one of the richest sport governing bodies in the world.

With so many local teams available, we can organise competitive fixtures with ease, using academies such as the Yuvraj Singh Centre of Excellence and the Virender Sehwag india_downtimelink_boxCricket Academy to help us achieve this. When you combine all that India has to offer your cricket with what India has to offer as a destination, it makes for a fascinating tour.
