I want to visit Chennai with my family - my kids are really keen cricketers who follow the IPL. Where do you go to watch a good cricket game? Is it hard to get a seat? Roughly what would we pay?
The best place to watch the IPL is on TV. :)
If you do want to experience cricket in India you first have to get a ticket - they are hard to come by. I think IPL tickets come in a range between A$5 and A$300. I wouldnt be buying the A$5 tickets in a hurry.
Indian cricket stadiums are being upgraded - the best at the moment is in the North at Mohali. In Chennai cricket is played at the M.A,Chidambaram Stadium or Chepauk for short. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M._A._Chidambaram_Stadium
I never knew that this was where India won its first ever test match. Chennai is a good place to watch cricket, the crowds tend to know the game. Eden Gardens in Calcutta and Wankhede in Mumbai are probably more famous though. about 11 years ago
