Not sure what you are on about? What can be better than hiding behind the sofa and locking yourself in the loo every 5 minutes :-[

Not only did the Indian supporters believe they would win the World Cup, the sompanys targeting the Indian market did as well.
Every advert on Willow is aimed at Indians some even in a Hindi.
And all hospitality balconies full of saffron.

Itís still unbearably tense. The sofa looks like somewhere I can hide behind until this is all over.

I realise people pop for a drink now and again but there are way too many empty seats there.

Well the ICC are in the BCCIís pockets and allowed Indian fans to buy something like 40% of available tickets. When India went out a lot of their fans must have made a decision not to attend the final, even as a neutral.

That's about right. I (allegedly) met a BCCI official at Edgbaston and he was openly boosting about all sorts of demands ICC have to accommodate from his Board. A very arrogant man he was as well.

A quiet and thoughtful crowd apparently at Lords.
