Yes, I loved it when the roof blew off and nearly decapitated half of the crowd.

And I was especially keen on the whole concept of having no beer on day 1 of a test match.


Don't forget the many tress growing through the cracks in the stands!

As regards to the SCG? Nice museum maybe, everything else - big shit hole. The catering and service at Edgar Street is better.



Got an SCG survey sent to my email today. I obliged by filling it out, giving the place the slating it deserves!!

My first time at the SCG to watch a game.

My random observations:

The best cricket ground I have been to (better than MCG)

Slow at serving (uncaring, I thought)

Very helpful; I bought ticketys at £70, we got to our seats and they had a resticted view. We asked to be moved and it was done quickly and without argument.

We had really good seats

I would go again (after I have visited Adelaide & Perth)

The SCG is the best cricket ground you've been to?

Which other grounds have you been to that you consider inferior?

Sorry H you're wrong there. It arrived 5 mins before lunch, I know cos I bought the first ones out the tap.
We got eight at 60Rs, the next eight cost 70Rs and the third they tried 100Rs, at which point I f....d them off, gave them 70Rs again and took 12 for their cheek ... wonderful day.
Turned out the increase was purely cos they had insufficient change. Ah the sub-continent.

For my two penneth, Sydney is a very nice ground, its the people in it and their archaic rules that spoil it. Newlands has it, the backdrop makes it simply unbeatable for my money.
