Florida festival again a big success

Martin Williamson

The tremendously enjoyable - and I speak from personal experience -

Sarasota International Sixes took place again last week, with the usual quotas of fun, good cricket, and Budweiser. As Lawrence Parry, Sarasota stalwart and the man responsible for leading many good men off the straight and narrow, explained:

There's just a lot of camaraderie between the players, and we call it a festival, not a tournament. It's really more like a reunion for the teams.

The Herald Tribune has provided a photo gallery and more information can be found at the official Sarasota Cricket Club website.

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
