- my first ever barmy army tour, and they don't come much better than SL.
West Indies ?
Taking everything into consideration, I'd say SL better than Windies atm. Cheaper, easier to get around (only about 100 miles between the two test venues), and the cricket should be more competitive. (although admittedly we did manage to lose the last time we went to windies), I'd expect us to give them a good hiding with our present side, yet SL in SL will be a stern task.
Of course Australia is the best, and 2010/11 is undoubtedly the greatest ever barmy army tour but it also costs a bomb ("six quid for a pint, a grand for a fliiiiiiggghhht" - look up "take the urn home" barmy army adelaide the cathedral on youtube for the full song). Nothing can ever top spanking the convicts in their own backyard. If I'd gone for the ashes last winter I wouldn't have had a deposit for my flat. Would've been the fkin b.ollox though.
86/87 - Yes possibly, but the barmy army hadn't really been invented then. and 2010/11 still better imo.
Why do I need to watch youtube ?
Yep Some of us have been following English cricket around since the 70's (I know I am old)
Oxymoron: It'd be virtually impossible to organise a test match in a squash court.
Dave: you don't.
oxymoron: Not imo.
bos1: Another lazy dismissal of the finest sport in the world

Far too laboured and hence it doesn't really work.
i think you will find that soggy biscuit is the finest sport in the world. and little danger of a draw.

I can't believe that anyone ever actually played soggy biscuit, but then I didn't go to private school admittedly.
presumably you just locked yourself away in a small room full of books for 15 years as an 'interesting experiment'?
Ooooh, now you're just being mean.
