Yesterday I watched the ind-nz 2nd test match 2nd day’s play in chinnaswamy. This was the 2nd time I visited chinnaswamy. The stadium itself is very pretty. There was a long queue outside the stadia for tickets and being the weekend, indian team batting, sachin tendulkar is part of team, all these factors were quite enough to justify the crowd. By the time we got the tickets, two wickets had already fallen and sachin and viru were on the crease. Just after lunch, both viru and sachin departed leaving india in serious trouble. Came after kohli and raina built a good partnership but just after his half century raina also went back to pavilion. Then captain cool entered with huge cheer from the crowd and made sure that india is not going to see any other blow for the remaining day.
Throughout the day there was maxican waves created by the audiences in the stadia which was pretty good to watch. Then there was a bunch of kids sitting behind us shouting so many things throughout the game. It was a whole together diff experience to enjoy.
