In short, no.

A longer version of that would be that, having attended the ICCWCOS just recently I have found that all of the joy of watching cricket in India, especially the ODI stuff, has been taken away.

ICCWCOS stands for International Cricket Council World Cup Of Shite.
Or if you prefer, International Cash Corporation Water Closet Of Shite.

Pronounced "ikwoss" for short.

Haha Love it, you seemed to be enjoying yourself when I had a drink with you?
Remember asleep in the back of a tuk tuk

Tuk tuks are dead comfy.
Ideal place to get forty winks whilst the driver tries to work out where he's going.

Can't recommend it as we haven't been before but me n Mrs Ainzy are booked in at The Park Hotel in Kolkata for the ODI and T20. Looks to be only a short distance to Eden Gardens. Biggest worry is the ticket info coming out of India which appears to be none existant at this stage. Don't suppose you have any info that would help??

I've never spent a night here but this place has a cracking location and is about 5 minutes walk from Eden.
