Cricketers from East Anglia are being invited to take part in a

21-day tour of Australia in February. The tour will take in 12 matches against high-quality opposition and is the idea of Norwich & Coltishall Wanderers player Rob Humphries, an Australian who has relocated to England. There will be five Twenty20 matches and seven 50-over games, playing for the British Fox & Hounds team, against club sides from Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane. One of the matches will be against Prahran Cricket Club and they could include star batsman David Hussey, brother of Australian Test player Michael. He is currently piling on the runs in English county cricket with Nottinghamshire. Humphries said: "It is the trip of a lifetime and it is a chance for players to test themselves against some of the best club sides in Australia." The tour costs £3,000 per person, including return flight and accommodation and takes place from February 1-22, 2008. Further information is available from Humphries on 07731663155 or email ozcricketexperience@hotmail.com
