    Confusion rises over the venue of the 2011 final.

    http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/****...ry/267640.html

    I'm really disappointed in PCB to bring this issue up. They already had the final in 1996, so there should be no reason for them to bring up issues on where the final should be held.

    Your thoughts?

    The filter censored out the shorter form of Pakistan on the shortened link.

    Yeah lets play all cricket matches at MCG from now on... i wouldn't mind really

    There's going to be 50+ macthes at world cup ... i guess its going to drag out for over a month again.
    Seems like they are just trying to get few more matches in pakistan which is fair enough, Final will definately be in india this time around. I don't see BCCI letting it go.

    Kolkata should get it. But I don't think the new administration likes Kolkata much.

    What a huge final it would be if it took place in Kolata...imagine if India were in the final and the final was taking place in Kolkata.

    They would boo because Ganguly isn't in the team.

    I'm pretty sure he would be retiered by 2011 anyway.

    MCG is the place really, it is the premier destination in world cricket, apart from Lord's, and should get all major finals.

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I don't think its relevent where the final is, at least in terms of whether India will win it.

    I say once the Indian team gets to a final, they should automatically rest all senior players and bring in the Ranji trophy winner to play in its place...because at least they won a final.


    Unless, they only won because they were facing other Indians.
