We at Right Off the Bat have a fondness for stadiums: those temples to the arts of cricket and baseball. For all their inherent grandeur, however, they often find themselves placed in some less than beautiful surroundings—yes, we’re talking about you, Yankee Stadium and Citi Field. Consider, however, playing cricket at one of the newer stadiums to feature international cricket: the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamshala, the home of the Dalai Lama of Tibet. We realize that it can be distracting to keep one’s eye on the ball when you’re surrounded by jeering fans of the opposing team, but, we ask, how could one concentrate when surrounded by this?!
