Rain – 1, Cricket – 0

Tuesday, 22nd November 2005

Well, it looks like today’s cricket match will not happen. It is pouring down in buckets, and by the looks of it, the ground cannot recover in time for today’s scheduled 2:30 p.m. start.

According to the TNCA web site, those who bought tickets are the biggest losers – their money will not be refunded “under any circumstances.” The Hindu had a report on this, and it looks like the Association will take a call on it only after the match is called off.

Judging by the ticket rates – a decent seat costs a minimum of Rs. 1200 – the TNCA seems to be a very greedy entity. But judging by the response – ALL the tickets were sold out within a few hours of opening the counters – Chennai is full of people willing to pay.
