Recently, there was news that Kotla might face a ban for 24 months post the and final ODI between India and Sri Lanka on December 27 last year was called off after 23.3 overs due to a dangerous pitch. The ICC has said that it is not in favour of banning the stadium for a longer period of time for the pitch fiasco during the recent India-Sri Lanka ODI.It is obvious that this view comes from the fact that the World Cup will be held in the sub-continent from Feb 19 to April 2 next year and banning a city like Delhi would have a bad effect as Delhi is a world known city, attracts loads and loads of foreign tourists that is sure to make the matches more entertaining.
So I guess, the power of bring money and the popularity amongst tourists have saved apni dilli this time….kya baat hai kya cheez hai paisa 🙂
Im just hoping that the common wealth games go off well….else the reputation of not only Delhi but India would go for a toss. Fingers crossed!
