Look who I found in Barbados

Oh well does that mean Ireland’s flirtation with cricket is over now that England remembered they were one-day World champions and have been playing Test matches for 150 years while Ireland are newbies.

Being of the Scottish variety I have long since given up on my teams winning at anything.

Instead I just love the spectacle, the game, and the hospitality.

My Dear Old Dad being brought up near a cricket ground in Glasgow and having played the game with distinction in Scotland I was brought to see touring teams and as a child even got an autograph with the great Gary Sobers.

Half way through life’s innings I joined him again in his native Barbados to watch the cricket.

Whether you like cricket or not, and I say stick with it, you’ll love the all-day part camaraderie and silly costumes.

Lets dance! I’ve waltzed with Judy Murray, partied with Brian Lara, manned the barricades with Civil Rights leader Myrlie Evers and even unmasked The Donald as a mariachi fan. Join me (and my bandana) on a madcap tour of the world with the people who make it all possible, our wonderful travel providers.
