The hotel is ideally a great place to get updated of any events in the city. If nothing works, there’s a high chance to catch a cricket game (for people not familiar with cricket, you can visit the Wikipedia page for a brief overview and be sure to look up Don Bradman and Sachin Tendulkar, two stalwarts of the sport.). Where does one catch this game of cricket you ask! Blasphemy! It is obviously the hallowed stands of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)! Born in Kolkata, home to the Eden Gardens – another hallowed stadium for cricket followers, and a cricket fanatic to the core, it is a given that Melbourne and London home to the MCG and Lords stadium respectively, find their way to the top of my “cities I would love to live in” list.Melbourne city also seemingly has a whole host of events all around the year and can be divided into two halves. The ones happening at the Federation Square the hotbed of activity in Melbourne city for tourists and locals alike, and the ones happening in the countless venues across the city, be it live music (Jazz nights) , a laughter dose at the Athenaeum or the hyped club scene (shake a leg anyone).
Stop by the MCC Library, dating from 1873, and tell me if you don't scream "Sachin Sachin" ;)The Guide just wont mind at all!
Melbourne Cricket GroundIt was my childhood dream come true to watch a live match at the historic Melbourne cricket ground. We watched a day night T20 match between Australia and South Africa. The stadium looks extremely beautiful under the flood lights.Day 2
