Chennai always the most of sporting venues in India. During the days when Tests were more popular, the spectators would clap for every 25 runs, as they do now for 50 and 100 runs. The reception they gave to the Pakistan team after they beat us is still stirring. Imagine what happened in Calcutta when Tendulkar was run out after a run-in with Shoaib and our commentators go on and on about it being knowledgeable.

Hardly anyone ever applauds a boundary hit by the opposition and compare it when an Indian hits it. And Shastri, Tony Greig and Co. carry on about the ATMOSPHERE. It simply vanishes when the others play well.
