Watching the World Cup, and most of the grounds have had upgrades - so why are there still restricted views in these grounds? Stadiums with pillars holding up upper tiers. Haven't they heard of cantilever stands?

The grounds that got upgraded for the WC don't have the pillar problem anymore.

Watching the Final. India are playing well and the stadium looks fantastic. Shame though since the slow building process in India that another 12,000 should be there watching this.

Football and Rugby hold their World Cup Finals in stadiums holding 70,000+ - so what does cricket do? Hold in one holding 32,000

Believe me, I'm a cricket fan, but that's insane - just gives the impression of a 'small-time' sport, not a major world sport.

Would be nice if the capacity would've been larger, but then stadium capacity is just one of the aspects. Wankhede and many other cricket stadiums in India are the best in the world in terms of infrastructure for players, display screens, etc. If you watched the match yesterday, you would've heard the commentary about the stadium. The outfields are the best in the world - they're fast as well as soft to dive on. The dressing rooms are huge and well-fitted, better than most others.

So, while crowd capacity is one aspect of it, these other aspects are arguably more important.

Both Cricket and Rugby are completely delousional about their sports popularity world wide.

As for the Final.....Yes Mumbai is the finance and entertainment hub and Eden Gardens had the final previously but it should of been in a bigger stadium like Bangalore.

It defies logic to play a group Match South Africa v Ireland in Kolkota and then play the final and semi in smaller venues.

Can you show me a single "f**k up" after the games started ... The only one I can remember is when drunk Aussie athletes threw a washing machine a few floors down.

Rugby and cricket are about equal in terms of global popularity,
