No, not a line from a John Wayne movie. The Indian cricket team (sans monkeys) should be in Canberra today to prepare to be flogged by our mighty Comets.
From memory the last touring side to play the ACT was New Zealand, who got smoked all around manuka by one Jack Smith who hit a double ton. They were scheduled to visit the Bradman Museum in Bowral before moving on to Canberra. Hopefully I’ll get out to Manuka on Thursday or friday and catch a bit of the action. I guess the Jewel of India in Manuka is probably booked out for a while.
All the best to them and i hope they enjoy their stay in our city.
[Ed. Maybe not. Seems that the Indian Cricket team has been ordered to stay in Sydney and there is some conjecture that the entire tour may now be cancelled]
