I do wonder whether the apparant silence is exaggerated simply because of the constant level of noise beforehand. Obviously there are plenty of Indian fans who will clap the opposition, its just very hard to notice.
I find it particularly strange, since though I support England in tests (and have been to quite a few), I'm not emotionally invested in them, and for the most part enjoy the games from an almost neutral perspective. I watch mostly for individual performances.
definitely a different culture. I find it poor form too when the crowds in the SC do not applaud the opposition but thats the way it is here in the SC. It is like a war for most of the crowds.
