Spectators

Whether you go to the ground or watch the game on TV, the array of colourful characters and groups of fanatics dressed up in weird and wonderful outfits are almost as entertaining as the game.

In more recent times, with the introduction of the Indian Premier League and the Twenty20 format, cricket has taken on a much more enjoyable feel. Not just relying on the entertainment of the game itself, these matches now feature fireworks and cheerleaders among other things, to enhance the fun atmosphere at the ground.

National Fan bases

Just like sporting teams have their own fan bases, so do national teams. Here’s a quick look at some of the well known national fan bases.

The Barmy Army (England)

England’s supporter group is almost as famous as the team itself. Starting as a group of three friends on the 94/95 Ashes Tour, the Barmy Army now follows the England cricket team all over the world and brings a unique, welcoming atmosphere to the games.

Today the organization is much more than just a 5,000 strong fan club. The Barmy Army also organises cricket tours, provides match day tickets and merchandising, and members receive a magazine and special offers including the chance to play in the Barmy Army cricket team.
