We are quite elated to have been selected for the hosting of the IPL... (more so as we were in pre-election mode too
I'm curious as to whether the Indian players had a chance to vote? I know the big wigs took a flight back to India to vote. Where voting stations set up for them at the embassies i wonder..)
Tickets are sold out, although we were restricted to the seating arrangements as most of the covered arenas were pre-booked for the Indian Nationals ahead of time.
South Africans do love their sport. We are about to host the Confederation Cup (June 2009) as a run up to the Soccer World Cup 2010.
Rugby is also a favourite here too. I must admit i do not follow Rugby but here in Durban we cheer our Sharks team on...
