There was a time when hardly any players from CW were seen abroad, now they are uniquitous. Not that the actions of a select few are likely to give us a good reputation.
I have it on good authority that there was a ticker tape parade planned alonf with other festivities for our arrival, me and Chris were supposed to be judging the local beauty contest and Dave was scheduled to open a new bar downtown. That's all gone to pot now, no pun intented.
By all accounts i was lucky, Chris and Ian said when they arrived it took them 5 hours to get through customs and they had to bribe the receptionist at the hotel to give them they're rooms, seems the locals have taken umbrage at the Aussies after the Watt Debacle.
There was no reception commitee at the airport, i had to get my own taxi, and that only after i managed to convince the guy that i was equally taken aback by the treacherous Aussie's Actions. He responded by saying "Well you better score some runs then" I decided it wasn't the best idea to tell him i was a spinner, hear they aren't that popular round here, so i told him id scored 5 centuries this season and he seemed content with that.
Met up with Ian and Chris at the hotel and we decided the best thing to do was get bladdered in advance of the first game. Broadie tried his luck with a local girl but got knocked back, but we managed to polish of a fair amount of liquor and went to bed looking forward to our first match against Port Of Spain.
