    i dont know why cricinfo has this in there report

    Accessibility is also the problem with Dharamsala, otherwise a tourist hotspot, six and eleven hours by road from Chandigarh and Delhi or two hours from the Pathankot railway station,
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    and this also

    Look at this picture and ask whether you'd really want to pass up a chance to watch or play cricket here. Himalayan Dharamsala, Bohemian Goa, Agartala and Guwahati in the forgotten Northeast, Kochi and Visakapatnam in the tropical South, more than a week in Bombay, half a week in Delhi, a whiff of Calcutta, provincial towns here there and everywhere... They may hate some of these places, love some, stay indifferent to some, but each will add to their understanding of the country in a broader and deeper way than a hop about the metros alone. Even if not configured specifically for the twenty-first century pro-sport outfit or the Barmy Army and package tour-operators, there is much for the curious traveller. You would have thought that some voice somewhere would indicate a wee bit of excitement at the prospect. Ultimately a sense of discovery, not luxury accommodation, makes a tour what it is.

    No they are playing there Neil

    A one-day practice match before the seven limited-overs games will be played in the northern hill resort of Dharamshala
    , better known as the home of Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader."We have a policy to promote remote centres like Agartala and Dharamshala, hence the matches there," said Dasgupta. ECB's Carr declined to comment on the schedule.

    This is pathetic. Makes one realise the worth of a person like Dalmiya. He'd never have pampered the ECB with all their nonsense.

    Why do we have to bring such issues ? If the Board decides to change the venues..good for them..Why do we have to feel that BCCI is pampering ECB or they are trying to be a PAIN if they dont.

    What has this to do with Dalmiya or the neww BCCI management ?

    Why cant it be looked at a sensible decision ?

    Just because it is also one that ECB may have wanted doesnt necessarily make it suspect or taking it show a propensity to being subservient ?

    And why does arrogance and a complete disregard of the opinions of others have to be seen as a desirable virtue?

    I guess it is just a compromise.... I think England shouldn't have complained, but once they have, as hosts, India were expected to try and mete out a compromise, which has now happened.

    Did Pakistan make a fuss about playing in Dharamsala ?
