Internal flights now booked. Bit of a shame it did not get moved really, I quite fancied a trip to Bangalore.

I could have done Chennai or Bangalore, but Mohali simply didn't fit with my flights/leave/etc. Shame.

Hope this is true for the enjoyment of you lucky people who've made to north India

"... Broad was also critical of facilities, especially of handling of movement around the sightscreen, in Mohali, which hosted a Test during the India-Australia series and is the venue for the next match between India and England. "This is the biggest headache in moving the game forward as no sooner do we get the game flowing does somebody gets up and either walks in front of the screens or stands up over the screens when the bowling is from that end," he wrote. "No matter what is said to the ground authorities, it seems impossible to stop people moving! I am at my wit's end!!!"

I S Bindra, the president of the Punjab Cricket Association, said the sightscreen issue had been rectified. "I think it was minor aberration in a five-day affair. But at the same time, it should not be repeated," he told PTI. "Besides, we have installed mega-sized sightscreen this time, even though it cost us some 500-600 seats."

Last time (March 2006) it beggar'd belief that people in a cricket ground had no concept of "behind the bowlers arm", but suppose they didn't care as India won comfortably then.
