Yeah it depends on the Location. A ticket to the Final costs 300-450USD but you can get into other matches for liek 50c in some cases or $5 at the most.

Ducking over to New Zealand for later on this year as well for the Rugby World Cup hahhhahahah. Will have a few years break though after that until the Euros or next world cup.

Also I don't think the 50 over game will die. The World Cup in terms of sponsorship and TV Audiences shits all over twenty20 as what happened with the twenty20 cup in Barbados this year.

I still think India is more into 50 over cricket. If you exclude the IPL which is more associated with Bollywood anyway international twenty20 doesn't even rate a mention when the Indian team play. They are mental over 1 day cricket and rarely ever turn up to tests.

give it time

in Australia our domestic 50 over comp have been replaced by two innings of 20 and 25 overs. also all attention for the T20 comp was much higher in 2009/10 than 08/09

I hate T20 and everything it stands for, but its the way the market is moving

Does Australia have to send a team? Our selectors will just pick spuds like Hauritz who chucks more pies than an angry pie chucker at the annual pie chucking championship

better to not waste everyones time and just give our opponents the win up front

people should not be forced to watch players like North or Hauritz

You can think whatever you want.
But the fact is 70,000 after the post WC renovations, that too by having II tier on the current single tier stands, otherwise 65,000.

U believe the workers, the same ones who reported during CWG to Media that "Saab hum abhi bhi kaam kar rahein hain...., chat ka kaam chal raha hain...."
Upto you how you accept the truth.

But sad that you did not get even a single pic of renovation though you had been there. Or did u ever go there? Since the pic u posted above was outrageously an old render oft repeated in this thread which everyone ignored despite being a mundance rehash.

New indian stadium ,not sure what they can offer..

the Pic of Delhi FC and Mohali sucks,
chennai have lot of open space that will seems to me give lot of movement to the bowlers i dont know why the desinged like this ,

Nagpur seems to me exact copy of SVP ahmedabad ,they should have designed differently,

kolkota and mumbai wankhede , not sure what will look like after completion.

bangalore same old stadium ,doesnt looks to me for 2011.

Hyderabad not included ,its bit surprise and feel sorry for the andhraties.

SVP looks convinceing with 50000 capacity ,other has reduce capacity after renewal , kolkot bit surprise went down to 75 00 odd.

need one like MSG australia for world cup final that can host 1 lac people.

what BCI doing for that?

ICC highlights World Cup venue chaos concerns . . .
Time for transparency


December 19, 2010, 9:08 pm


There is a lot of tip-toeing and whispering going on over a variety of issues in Maitland Place these days, Yahaluweni.

Ah yes, the enclave of the government appointed Interim Committee, aka Sri Lanka Cricket, and its off-spring, known as the organising secretariat for the World Cup 2011, are not so much worried about treading on broken eggshells; more like broken promises.

It has been written so often in these files how the three World Cup venues for the 2011 extravaganza are way behind schedule on delivery, that it is almost a cliché. Now there are serious concerns which many seem to be trying to hide behind political rhetoric.

All this fails to ignore how the International Cricket Council’s inspection team have heavily criticised not only the refurbishing taking place in India at two venues, Eden Gardens and where the event’s final is to take place, Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Partly hidden in the report released, like Wikileaks, to certain media, is heavy criticism of Sri Lanka’s three venues for the event.

What has long been a major problem in subcontinent sports administration is how those involved fail to understand something as simple as the concept of meeting a deadline. The question that should be asked and this is telling the political ‘bada’ not to get involved in matters they fail to understand, is how this was allowed to happen. A deadline is a deadline and those responsible are trying to duck such issues.

Now it is being suggested in India that two of Sri Lanka’s three troubled venues will face similar criticism and there is the possibility the Hambantota venue is so far behind that it needs another four months to be ready. Of course officials will deny all the comments and the reports on websites and in newspapers.

Professor Eugene van Vurren, an internationally respected South African architect, and the ICC’s stadium consultant, designed and built the famed Centurion Test venue, now known as SuperSport Park, in 1986. The venue took 10 months to build on a plot of land on the banks on the Hennops River.

It was a venue that won an international design for Professor van Vurren, who in his student days at Pretoria University was a fair top order batsman as well as a change bowler. He was the ICC consultant in 2003 (South Africa) and 2007 (the Caribbean).

This explains how well he knows his job and the requirements needed for the building of stadiums. It is his design on which Pallekele is based and why it has excited those of us who have seen it; a venue of great value in the central island.

This being the case, the question is: why then has it taken more than a year to build the venue at Hambantota to host two games? There are some reasons, the isolated area is one where building materials need to be shipped in. This, however, fails to excuse how it has taken so long to get it ready.

Already, it has been confirmed that the ICC are looking at back up venues if Hambantota is not ready, with Dambulla being one. Why such a state of affairs has been allowed to happen is disturbing enough. What is even more worrying is why there seems to be no accountability or transparency over this issue. As written last week, it gives an overlaid third world image.

What is also worrying, is what has happened to the reports on the Sri Lanka venues when Clive Lloyd led the inspection team that went on to India. What has been pointed out and there needs to be some cognizance of such an issue as this one. Already the ICC has pointed out in their report certain facts which seem to have been overlooked by far too many involved in a wild scramble to deny the comments.

Remarks saying that other than the building of the venue, there are a number of other areas at the grounds that need to be completed before any of the games for the event can be played. One is landscaping and the required beautification of the venues; another is the interior finishing and furnishing; a third is installation of efficient entry gates along with certification by local authorities, along with the provisional infrastructure mechanism to house the World Cup organisers and ICC officials involved in the running of the game.

The venue inspection team head has expressed how the ICC team is dissatisfied over at preparedness of the three Sri Lankan stadiums to be used for the event: Khettarama, Colombo, Hambantota and Pallekele in Kandy. What has disconcerted the ICC inspection has been the almost easygoing way the issue has been tackled by those in charge.

The website cricketnext.com said in a report that also appeared in Indian Express and Deccan Herald, that the interim report ends with the worrying comment, "It will be necessary to re-inspect the venues and take a decision on the viability of staging the World Cup matches as currently scheduled."

No doubt the local ICC organising secretariat guys will issue suggestions how the reports are misleading and that the venues will be delivered on time, mid-January. This is not the point of the issue. What is taking place should never have been allowed to happen in the first place and where SLC need to explain such failures.
