Cocohol is pleased to announce the launch of its service for the cricket fan who wants to watch cricket in India. It has never been easier for supporters to follow their country on overseas tours, combining a holiday with watching top-class cricket. The tour options are also available for domestic travelers.
In spite of Hockey being the national game, Cricket is the most widely watched and appreciated sports in India. When India plays the whole country comes to a standstill. India has some of the most famous and varied grounds in the world. The Eden Gardens in Kolkata is considered the Indian equivalent of the imposing Lords or MCG and presents an awesome sight when filled to its capacity of 100,000.
Cricket has a unique atmosphere and provides two forms of the game to enjoy. For the traditionalist the "Test" match arena gives 5 days of tension and a chance to enjoy the finer points of the game. The shorter limited over matches that provide a result within the one day are a more colourful experience and provide big hitting, explosive action throughout the day.
Limited-overs matches are usually sold out well in advance - especially if Sachin Tendulkar is playing - but tickets are not expensive and can readily be bought outside grounds. Unlike some other countries, tickets normally go on sale days before the game rather than months.
Cricket's big centres – Ahmedabad, Mumbai, New Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore and Chennai are all easily accessible and can form the hubs from which short trips to places like Kerala, Taj Mahal or the beaches of Goa can be undertaken. You can combine watching cricket with a tour of the splendours of Kerala and other tourist destinations.
Cocohol will provide all the ingredients to make a trip to an International Cricket match an occasion to remember - from accommodation to transport, guaranteed match tickets to city tours.
Cocohol has the knowledge and expertise to make any cricket tour throughout India a memorable experience.
