2004 Videocon Cup

The Videocon Cup in Amsterdam got off to a flyer on August 21, 2004, as two old enemies, India and Pakistan, clashed in a 12,000 sell out at Amstelveen VRA Cricket Ground, with Pakistan emerging victorious in an entertaining tussle. World champions Australia completed the guest-list, and even though our old cricketing foe – rain – tried to spoil everyone’s fun. I think it’s safe to say that these pictures tell quit another story: we had fun, lots of it.  The 220 mm of rain which fell during the tournament washed out most of the preliminary games and led to a final between Australia and Pakistan in a low-scoring final on August 29, in what was the tournament’s only rainless match.
