India Tour Day 3
Updated: Apr 12, 2019
Apologies for delay in updating Day 3s adventures but it’s difficult to find the time to post when there is one epic adventure after another.
After playing our first game on Indian soil where all the boys had an opportunity to bat, bowl and field in Indian conditions, we were back to the Hotel and a quick changeover before we headed to the IPL.
Watching the IPL live with 40,000 fanatical Indians is something I have had the pleasure of doing more than once. But for the rest of the group it was another unique memorable experience. The fact that the gamed turned into one of the greatest matches in the IPLs 12 year history was just icing on the cake and dither reinforced just how unforgettable some opportunities are that we get.
I watched 7 other Australians sit in awe at the sheer exuberance and passion that is Indian cricket when they feel engaged and connected with their idols. I also got my own moment of simple joy watching a Father and Son share a bucket list moment experience with each other and continue to form a bond that will be forever populated with that moment and experience. Having shared the exact same moment with my daughter I fully understand the significance.
The tourists are all up and about and exploring a world of wonder that requires sone resilience and contemplation and s fair bit of mental and physical strength.
We are tired after a gruelling schedule but every day is greeted with energy and smiles and a determination to get on the front foot and take in all that this magnificent Country and City have to offer each day.
I have plenty of photos and videos which will be added here shortly.
Day 3 will be hard to top, but I have a feeling the best is yet to come.
