Aussie Cricketers Earn New Fans During Bali Visit

Aussie cricketers score clean sweep of Bali's Goodwill.


(4/9/2006)

A team of Australian cricket champions returned home in early April after making history closer to home than South Africa.

The team of former Test and State players volunteered their time to showcase their sport in Bali and show support for the youth affected by the island’s tourist downturn.

Former Australian Test and State cricketers Jo Angel, Ryan Campbell, David Colley, Wayne Holdsworth, Paul Wilson, David Fitzgerald, Brian Taber and Richard Chee Quee played a series of limited-overs matches against Balinese players.

The "Aussie Legends" – sponsored and organized by Garuda Indonesia - undertook coaching clinics and workshops. They visited schools to spread the message about cricket, a fledgling sport in Bali, and took kits of new and used cricket equipment, clothing and merchandise to donate to Balinese cricket clubs.

The Regional Manager of Garuda Indonesia South West Pacific, Suranto Yitnopawiro, said the Garuda Aussie Legends are confident that this first tour to Bali by top class former players will help generate interest in the game while generating goodwill between Indonesia and Australia.

Suranto explained, "The presence of these cricketers has attracted great coverage in Indonesia and has been an outstanding success among the local people. It shows Australians that they are very welcome in Bali as we rebuild to once again become Australia's No 1 overseas holiday destination."

Seen on balidiscovery.com are pictures of Western Australian "Garuda Aussie Legend" Jo Angel providing practical tips on the game of cricket to an enthusiastic group of young Balinese players. Angel has represented both the his State and the Country of Australia in a large number of nation and international cricket matches.
