Confirmed on the alcohol as I checked before buying tickets.

Cant comment on AD as I have never been to the stadium, but Dubai Cricket Ground is reasonably well laid out, fairly easy to get to etc. I know quite a lot of people who are going so there should be a good "Barmy Army" crowd.

Yep - but only if they send me my tickets! Paid last October (after reading newspaper ad) as a birthday pressie for self. Phoned the supplier 2 weeks ago who said tickets would be sent out next week. Have I been ripped off?

would love to be there tomorrow but have to be in RAK

at 2pm UAE the Barmy Army will play the Last Post and sing Jerusalem to coincide with the funeral of Barmy Legend George The Podge Summerside who sadly died last weekend. George's flag Podgy Roker will be in place behind the bowlers arm as usual

Podgy and 2 other England folks celebrate beating the Aussies

Yep, we booked about two weeks ago through timeouttickets. We have recived tickets for the tests, but all ODI tickets are apparently collectable at the stadium. We have had an eMail confirmation showing us where to collect etc.

Hope it comes through for you
