Supporter Q&A – Phil Knaggs

by Addis Army Cricket

Q: What was your first overseas Test match?
A: Melbourne 2006/07

Q: What is your most memorable overseas Test match you’ve seen?
A: Cape Town 2009/10. I say memorable, i was on a hospitality G&T per over for the last hour.

Q: Who is your favourite current England player?
A: Jos Buttler is box office (perhaps not in the test arena) but have to say local boy Ben Stokes.

Q: Who is your favourite England player of all time?
A: Alastair Cook

Q: Who is your favourite opposition player of all time?
A: Sachin Tendulkar

Q: What is your favourite overseas Test ground any why?
A: Cape Town

Q: Which country is your favourite to tour and why?
A: I like different and cheap! Sri Lanka ticks both boxes but i was annoyed by the ticket fiasco 2012. New Zealand is lovely, but too far away.  South Africa also lovely (and cheap) but i don’t like the crime element. So despite my love hate relationship with the country I’d say India

Q: Of all the cities/towns you visited on town, which is your favourite and why?
A: Mumbai, lots of stuff to see and do, Asian carnage plus the ability to get away from it and dive into somewhere quite plush and westernised.

Q: What is your most memorable non cricket moment on tour?
A: The whole Bangladesh (esp. Chittagong) 2010 experience, from meeting Bilal, setting up bars, speeding through town in tuktuks, several culture shocks.

Q: What do you enjoy most about touring?
A: A cricket tour is true escapism. I 100% forget about work whilst on tour with like minded individuals, be it drinking in bars, seeing the sights or even watching the odd bit of cricket.
