    India's commercial capital Mumbai was on Monday chosen as the venue for the 2011 cricket World Cup final while Lahore and Colombo will stage the semifinals of the cricketing extravaganza.

    Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, Pakistan, would host the two semifinals, while Bangladesh's Sher-E Bangla National Stadium will host the opening ceremony and the first match, it was announced in Mumbai after a meeting of the representatives of the joint hosts of the tournament.

    well thats better news than having the finals in pyancho-land, as was originally planned. kotla is almost a mughal ruin. wankhade is a lot better and i am sure can be retouched.

    It'll be fun to see Mr. Thackrey's reaction if it's an India-Pakistan final.



    Either of the two currently seem unlikely to make it to the finals but still...

    well foreign teams esp australia and england always insist that they be given a test there. but the eden gardens crowd don't do justice to their reputation as the "cresendo crowd" by also proving themselves as the most volatile crowd. but for a stadium, eden gardens cant be beat, by any other in india. mohali dont compare cos mohali has no lineage. CAB is the second oldest cricket club in the world, and older than BCCI.mohali = "johnny come lately/new kid on the block"

    as for bombay getting the nod - for one, bombay deserves it, being the nucleus of cricket in india and two, ever since powar became the bcci chairman, bombay/maharashtra has been getting everything. in the england series, 2 of the 3 tests were in powar's hoime state.

    if dalmiya would have been the bcci chairman then the final would have happened at eden gardens.
