Maybe english fans need to take a leaf out of Bharat Army's books and make watching england a bit more lively lol

 

PS- why dont english fans bring St Georges flags and wear the colours like Indians do?

No happy with the way we watch and enjoy our  cricket. If everyone was the same the world would be dull.

 

The English flag has certain "connotations" relating to football hooligans and racists so I think normal people tend to avoid it

What was the ticket cost. I heard from some friends that it goes upto $1000 or something like that. I can't imagine people pay that much for a cricket game. Either they must be rich or insane. Do the Indian games cost more. How much does an England game against anyone except India cost like. Hotel prices and airline tickets must be through the roof.

And more importantly how did the Lancashire cricket ground treat a Yorshireman like you. Did you smell the roses :winky:

It was  £75. I just got lucky in the ballot. England games are less than that. £30-50 usually. It"s the Ashes matches which cost more. Only going to day 1 at Edgbaston and day 3 at Headingley but cheapest tickets were £60. 

 

As for Lancashire. I smelt something but it wasn't roses! Tbf OT is a very good ground. It's just the usual miserable inhabitants i dislike. Made a chance to see people smiling there for a change.

The tickets went upto £1000 in second hand sales sites like Viagogo. Original ticket prices started from 50 or 60, but apparently 500,000 (5 lakhs) people participated in the ballots for the 25,000 tickets. So you can imagine the demand and hence the rise of second hand ticket prices.

Disappointing game but my word WHAT an atmosphere. Good thing I went for the experience more than the game. Still got imaginary horns blasting in my brain!

 

Got an orange white and green turban to bring out at parties :--D

Saw an old Englishman dozing off with the radio commentary plugged into the ears amidst all the buzz.  Figured it might be the resident ICF user  YCCC :-D

Rohit Sharma probably played the greatest knock in an India Pakistan game.  Even brought the sixer off point ala Tendulkar from 2003. A lot of heroes in the game, Rahul did well to see off the new ball and Kohli did what Kohli does and in the field the Kuldeep was the real star supported by Pandya/VJ.  Demolishing win for India in the end but they took it too easy after the rain break and gave away some free runs.

Firstly I'm not old. Yes I do have a radio. Never dozed off at any cricket match.

 

I had my India flag coloured turban on anyway to look the part

That shows their cheap and sick mentality.

I think it automatically locks out the non-members when there is heavy traffic (usually during and after the games).

This will be defeat in true sense if Pakistani awaam dkept Sarfaraz as captain and didn’t change the team or its management, post WC-19.

 

I have a feeling that this time , team and its management will mostly save their jobs
