Press release from: Gullivers Sports Travel

Following a dramatic end to 24 years of losing on Aussie soil, the England team lifted the Ashes last week and took another giant step closer to becoming the best cricket team in the world.

Gullivers Sports Travel has been arranging Ashes Tours since 1982 but Managing Director John Davison felt this one was different and said: “I was there in 1986/87 but this one was a bit more special. This was a comprehensive Ashes Series victory and England totally outplayed Australia in all departments.”

The 3-1 win in Australia was well deserved not only for the players but for the dedicated supporters that travelled to the other side of the world to cheer them on. The atmosphere running through the stands was electric throughout the Series and didn’t subside until the urn was firmly in Andrew Strauss’s hands.

Already ICC World T20 Champions, the next big challenge for the England team is the ICC Cricket World Cup in February. Hailed as ‘The Cup That Counts’, the team and the fans go into the tournament with high expectations.

John Davison said: “England really are a great unit both on and off the field and have made another couple of strides to becoming the best cricket team in the world in all forms of the game.”

The ICC Cricket World Cup is the biggest prize in the sport, held over 43 days with 14 countries competing for the title. Not only do fans have the chance to watch the excitement on the field but it is also the perfect time to experience the world’s most colourful, vibrant and cricket crazy countries; India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

For those fans that missed the action in the West Indies at the ICC World Twenty20 or the Ashes in Australia, there is still time to support the team at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.

Gullivers Sports Travel offers official ICC Cricket World Cup packages starting from £169 per person for hotel & match ticket packages. Packages start from £1,635 per person to watch England take on India in Kolkata (24th February – 1st March 2011), including return international flights, four nights B&B accommodation at 4* The Park Kolkata Hotel, the guarantee of official match tickets (charged separately at face value), airport and match transfers, one full day of sightseeing in Kolkata (including lunch), Welcome Cocktail Party and Gullivers Cricket Forum.

For the final stages of the tournament, prices start from £3,665 per person for the Blue Sapphire Tour (23rd March – 4th April 2011). This price includes return international flights with Emirates Airlines, internal flights, 11 nights accommodation on B&B basis (six nights at the 4* Mount Lavinia Hotel Sri Lanka, two nights at the 5* Hotel Mount View Chandigarh and three nights at the 5* Trident Nariman Point Hotel), the guarantee of official match tickets for Quarter Final 4, both Semi Finals and the all-important Cricket World Cup 2011 Final (charged separately at face value), access to a Welcome Cocktail Party and Farewell Dinner, Gullivers Cricket Forum with a cricketing celebrity, transfers, sightseeing in Mumbai, souvenir merchandise and the services of a Gullivers Tour Manager.
