Live from Chinnaswamy Stadium: India vs. England

For the past few days, I've been travelling in India.

Today I spent a few hours in and around Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bangalore (okay, am not going to say Bengaluru as I still fancy the Anglicized name of the City) where the India vs England cricket match was going on earlier today.

These pictures were shot using a Nikon D300 using a standard Nikkor 18-55 mm lens, hours before the match was to begin.

The match was a thrilling tie!

It's a big deal in that part of the world. Unfortunately in America they don't have this sport. My husband is a fan and is trying to teach me the way it's played.

The rules of cricket have me stumped. And some of the cricketers actions crease me up.
Even so, thanks for some great photos and an interesting post.

All the best, Boonie
