The guys who captured this video should be asked to sit and asked to watch it 10 times in a continuous loop. This can be the only worthwhile compensation for inflicting such a poorly shot video upon us viewers And is there something known as proofreading? This video only caused a headache, though they may have valid points to discuss and share.

Very poor camera work!! The world is trying to catch a glimpse and soak in the experience through you, but your camera keeps moving every now and then! Hence, unsatisfactory! No offence!

Wow, thats one big party crowd. Regarding the comparison with India - I guess of late there are too many cops outside of Indian venues, they dont let you hang about there. But this surely looks festive .

I have been a staunch follower of cricket from the time i was a six year old in 1989. Increasingly i find that more and more young indians are turning their backs on cricket. Many turned their backs after the betting incidents of 1999, but a preposterous number of utterly insignificant ODI series have given a telling blow to the spectators and the IPL has hit the deathnail in the coffin of cricket popularity. The greed for money among the cricket administrators has murdered the soul that cricket had in india. Cricket is not the same in india as it was in the 80's, 90's or early part of the last decade. And the curve of popularity is on the way down with a very steep slope.

And i agree fully - T20 is not cricket - its a form of entertainment that requires a bat and ball to be performed. I do not consider T20 or IPL fans to be cricket fans. They like their dose of entertainment of T20 just like they like a raunchy bollywood dancedance
