What marisamay said about them purposefully organising themselves to buy the tickets straight away to outpace anglos is worrying too, do they do that legally?
Do us all a favor and google “Barmy Army”.
They make the Indians look like child’s play

The barmy army are very well known in Australia, they are possibly better known than some members of the actual australian team.

Though i doubt they ever formed the majority of the crowd.:

' Curry Army 'more numerous. 'Barmy Army' , were only a shade of their old selves last test in Perth. Rather sad. Looks like high prices, low GBP, less organisation has all contributed to paying a toll.

Sport in general over done in Australia. One of the few subjects men can interact to a certain level on, without fear of causing ire. Once that subject exhausted, observe too often, the long silences.

In voice yes, not in numbers.

really? I guess it's a function of how well the English team is doing. A buddy of mine went to several Ashes tests held in Australia back in either 2011/2010 cant quite remember. He said that some of the games felt like you were in England. Of course, England dominated the series pretty much from start to finish so that might have caused fewer Aussies to bother attending the games.

No the full deal pal. But could very easily 'get over it' to enable some kind of comprehension of a more basic level to help you out.


Hardly matter the numbers is so out classed in verbals. Good to see England and others bring a bit of passion to the games.
ie. Less dull.

English more boisterous in/out of games. Aussies somehow more reserved in singing (basically don't sing) chanting but some still get 'the hump' with certain English antics. AS mentioned last Ashes found very reserved from England contingent, compared to years past.

South Asians, specially Indians, are growing very fast in all first world countries.

Here in a small city of Midwestern United States that many would consider, “in the middle of nowhere”, we have about 35 cricket teams - 99% Indians.

This may surprise you but I think more cricket is played in USA than in home of cricket, England.

An Australian cricket brand called “Focus Cricket” just launched a dealership in Chicago and Houston - such is the demand of cricket gear in USA.
