    At least Test matches are played in India during autumn-winter season which avoids any chances of rain and gives full 5 days.

    That one really does depend on whether they are winning.

    Looks like you're not aware of fanatic behavior of Premier League soccer fans. Passionate fans of any sport will behave wildly irrespective of the countries they belong to.
    Think what he meant was that the indian crowds are flat, that is, there's no ebb and flow to the atmosphere. I'd agree to an extent, because generally it's just one long loud drone, like those ****ing vuvuzelas, only not quite as annoying.

    They don't use as many spices as we do in India. Sometimes weak stomachs just can't take it. Nothing one can do about it.

    What's more the likes of Enteropathogenic E.coli and Rotovirus are pathogenic by definition and only exist because of inferior hygiene and sanitation. The fact that your immune system has produced antibodies against them is neither here nor there as it merely means that you got lucky at some point during your childhood. Simple diarrhea remains the third leading cause of paediatric deaths in India.

    But I digress, back to cricket.........
    But it's not like you have it everywhere. For the same amount of money you spend in an everyday restaurant in London or Melbourne, for example, you can get a five-star service in India. So, why would anybody from the "west" have any reason to complain at all when they come to India to watch cricket. Just tell your hotel to pack up a continental lunch for you, and get you a bottle of evian
    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    Interesting opinion, because I've never met a Saffa who doesn't strut around like they have a stump shoved up their cloaca and who lacks a Peter Costello level sense of entitlement.

    That's one of the reason's I was so bloody upset that there wasn't a New Years Test at Newlands <_<. Yeah the mountain in the background is gorgeous but more importantly, if you take your binoculars with to the cricket, you can drool and salivate at the plethora of feminine eye candy in scantily clad outfits.

    In fact, all male cricket fans should encourage their cricket teams and boards to visit SA in summer alot so that we all may collectively appreciate this eye candy extravaganza

    First time I have heard that expression used for a Saffa. Very sobering
