ITC Sports India v England Cricket Tours

ITC Sports

ITC Sports is excited to bring its guests yet another spectacular season of world class cricket - set against the thrilling backdrop of India, a country that shows more passion for the sport than virtually any other. India always captivates with its bustling cities, cavalcades of brilliant colours, rich history, stunning architecture and sheer sense of vibrancy and life. This can all be discovered with ITC Sports cricket tours.
 
ITC Sports has considered all the best India has to offer and has created two new itineraries for the ultimate cricket fan to indulge in. Choose between the Platinum Tour or the Cricketer Tour. Both last for a duration of 18 nights and will be personally escorted by a tour manager and celebrity host. The group will also be accompanied by an English speaking guide on all of the excursions. There will be a ‘State of Play’ cricket forum held during each of the two Test Matches, including drinks and the chance to meet with a special guest (guest confirmed closer to departure date). There will also be a farewell dinner to round off each tour.
