We saw the last WC in the WIndies - it could have been anywhere from a crowd point of view. The essense of the Windies crowd was missing partly due to the ticket prices but mainly due to taking away what was the Windies - the drums, horns and music. Lets keep what is essentailly SL cricket's uniqueness in tact and may is part of the game for a long time.
