Rows of empty galleries greet Tendulkar on his 12000th Test run but still I S Bindra’s Mohali;
Mumbaikars may have sold their soul to T20 and switched allegiance to YV Patil but still Sharad Pawar’s Wankhede;
Counterfeit tickets, counterfeit crowd, counterfeit administrators and still Arun Jaitley’s Kotla;
Lalit Modi’s indifference to anything not T20 shared by the entire Jaipur but still Sawai Man Singh;
Nagpur maybe a lemon as a venue but still Shashank Manohar’s VCA Stadium in Jamtha.
Once again, arguably the most hopelessly emotional bunch of cricket followers found them caught in the crossfire between egoistic administrators and their murky game.
Cry Eden cry.
