Anyone going out to India? Just booked to go out and watch the Mumbai and Kolkata games and wondering who else may be going and if anyone has any info on match tickets at this stage. We go on the 21/10 from Manchester to Mumbai and return from Kolkata on 30/10. Flying via Dubai with Emirates. This is mainly to make up for the switched World Cup game in Kolkata earlier this year and fulfill an ambition to visit Eden Gardens and to see the improvements at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai which was a shithole back in 2006 when we last visited.

We are doing those 2 ODI's as well.

I received an email back from Mumbai Cricket Association on Saturday am stating "we will revert back to you once the formalities for sale of tickets are completed".

I emailed mcacrik@vsnl.com requesting for details of tickets.

Not found any contacts for Kolkata yet.

I've also contacted the grounds (Hyderabad and Delhi) to get tickets for the first 2 ODIs but am waiting for a reply. As it's my first trip to India, I did contact the various tour operators, but it seems like they want a not-small fortune for the convenience of sorting out the tickets and getting you to the ground.

On previous ODIs out there tickets have generally gone on sale locally in the week before the game.

A place where many Western travellers end up is in and around the Main Bazaar in Paharganj, New Delhi. It's a good area for finding budget and mid-range accommodation, and very handy for New Delhi Train Station.

If you're arriving on the Airport Metro, walk from there to New Delhi Train Station, cross the train tracks on the footbridge, and the Main Bazaar, Paharganj is on the opposite side of the road.

It's normally easy enough to just turn up and find a room (which is what I've tended to do in the past), but if you want somewhere specific, you will find plenty of places recommended in guides like the Lonely Planet. One budget/lower mid-range option where I stayed last time and found to be good value for money was The Cottage Yes Please.

The map on the website showing where the place is is a bit confusing. Google Maps gives you a better idea.

Another good hotel in the same area is Prince Polonia.

First stayed in 2001. Reasonable, clean and very friendly staff. Recommended to a friend during this years WC who confirmed still excellent value for money, and just round the corner from the new Metro (think Imperial Cinema was the stop) which you can get direct from the airport.

During the ODI's in 2006 they sorted both match tickets & train tickets for myself and my wife, without additional charges!

Certainly made our life easier and a far better experience than any of the traditional 5* hotels (stayed in the Inter Continental in Delhi 2005 and they charged premium for sorting train tickets)
