There was a group of Australian fans that called themselves the ‘Fanatics’ at the Edinburgh ODI last year, and they had been to the Ashes games. I just assumed that was the Australian ‘Barmy Army’ because it seemed quite similar.
Ooh that’s awesome!! I hadn’t heard of that! Maybe I’m just terribly uninformed XD

LIES LIES LIES. YOU’RE ACTUAL BANANA MONSTER PETER SIDDLE DONT EVEN LIE
While ever there are fans like you and I and us all cricket will never be dead in Aus. And our kids will learn to love it. And their kids will learn to love it. Just as I did from my dad. It’s too genetic for it to be wiped out! Long live cricket! :)
There’s bay 13 at MCG. The hill at Adelaide… Kinda the same idea?
Yeah, probably! But we don’t seem to have an ofical cheer squad that follows the boys around on Ashes tours etc :(
Another valid point! I’m probably still suffering a bit from post-summer depression and the lack of cricket is getting me down XD It’s so exciting to have the ladies playing at the moment though my goodness seeing them thrash Pakistan yesterday was such a joy :3
Ahhh I envy you “major centres” folk! The last Ashes was pretty big in Brisbane too but it’s not quite the same scale as down there or in Sydney. Hence you guys get the major CWC games while we’re left with Aus v Bangladesh! I’m hoping like you that having the World cup next year will boost the game’s popularity. And yes, like you said, I really do believe that the popularity of the game depends on how our national team is doing. Better fickle fans than no fans at all though I suppose.
