Yes, nothing wrong in that ... it's just that all visiting sides like to play in the premier Test venues. Just like BCCI won't be too pleased if we get to play in Cairns and Hobart instead of MCG/SCG or in Durham, Cardiff and Rose Bowl instead of Lords and Oval.

How do spectators' looks matter? Its their behavior if anything that should make a difference. Why would looks matter? You are discriminating with respect to skin color to be honest.

If good looking people are present in the stadium, then stadium will automatically look good. Simple. Also in India lot of lower middle class people come who don't dress well ( understandable ). That makes a lot of difference. If you look at Australian crowd or crowd in developed countries people look & dress better which adds to visual delight of the stadium.

Crowd in India




Crowd in Australia





The above 2 pics shows looks of people & how they dress is also important in judging beauty of a stadium.

Beauty of MCG, SCG etc will decrease if crowd in pic 1 is present there.

Similarly beauty of Feroz Shah Kotla will increase if crowd in pic 2 is present there.

By how they dress, do you mean bare-chested men with beer?

I've watched cricket at the MCG and Eden Park. Both were World Cup 2015 games. the MCG game featured India and 80% of the crowd was Indian. You can decide if that diluted the 'quality' of the crowd:

Ind v SA at MCG

Aus v NZ at Auckland

Also I don't buy the Delhi vs Canberra comparison. Canberra is a small city whereas Delhi is one of the largest cities in the world. Accordingly, it deserves a bigger and better cricket venue.

That's racism and incorrect mentality.

New Stadium in Saifai, UP which is nice but should have been made elsewhere like Kanpur, Varanasi etc not in small village. I am sure it will never host international match.

Yup....that stadium was built purely to satisfy an idiot's ego and no international or any of the important domestic matches will ever take place until offcorse that guy (the one for whose ego it was built) or his son comes back to power. Only in India one can have autocracy within democracy..
