The Sydney Cricket Ground is one of the most iconic stadium, not just in Australia, but in the world and if one is a cricket lover, it's virtually a place of pilgrimage. I consider myself lucky to have visited this great venue not once, but twice: for a test match as well as for the stadium visit. Both trips gave... More

As soon as it was announced that the final day of the Test Match again Pakistan would be free entry we decided to visit this famous ground. The history at this ground can't be matched and the views were spectacular. To top it all off the Aussies won!

I went with yy partner and a friend to this tour. I'm a big cricket fan and really enjoyed seeing the SCG and the informative tour. The amount of time and information given was well balanced and friendly. My only criticism was that I found the introductory video that went through the Ashes to unnecessarily highlight England's 5-0 loss and... More

Let me start by saying that there is nothing wrong with the sport that is on the venue itself is a problem. Getting your bag checked and seeing security is all pretty fair and standard, but when what ruins the experience is the constant reminders that you will be ejected if you throw a beach ball in the crowd. It... More

If you follow Cricket, then no visit to Sydney is complete without a visit to the SCG. It is an iconic ground with the traditional pavilion surrounded by more modern seating. Viewing is excellent from all round and there are plenty of concessions to keep fed and watered with typical Aussie tucker. I last visited to watch the Big Bash... More

As mentioned I had never watched cricket before but the atmosphere was electric and once I figured out the rules it was really fun to watch. Food and drink are expensive but worth it for the length of the game. I went to the BBL game which are shorter than test matches and I found it a good length of... More
