Aussie pictures

Some stray pictures from the Australian tour so far. All these are taken from Outlookman Rohit Mahajan's digital camera. Old travelmate Atreyo (Hindustan Times) has also taken a number of pictures involving me, but hasn't bothered to give them to me yet.

Outside the lawyers' chambers in central Adelaide. This is very close to the court where the Harbhajan Singh racism hearing was carried out by Justice John Hansen after the fourth Test.

Being photographed by Headlines Today cameraperson Subodh Saxena outside the Aussie war memorial in Adelaide.

With the bearded and learned Atreyo Mukhopadhyay of The Hindustan Times in the stands at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. It's a small ground with a capacity of around 8,000 people, and there's space for only about 7 people in the official press box. Which is why we were seated in the general stands. Made watching the game that much more fun.
Not much has changed, eh, Ajitha? Washed my clothes in Brisbane. Ironed them in Melbourne. Good as new by the time the next PTC happened.

Lasith Malinga crosses the frame at the Manuka Oval...he 'bowled' badly, but Sri Lanka beat India in the rain-affected game.

Subodh (left), myself and the ponytailed Nagraj Golapudi of cricinfo striding out to get a gauge of the Manuka Oval in Canberra. It's a beautiful ground. Very picturesque. Low stands. Lovely breeze as a result. Quite large though. The curator Marcus Pamplin claims the playing area is larger than the MCG, which may or may not be true.

The shot I had mentioned in a previous post - this is the footbridge we walked when going from Flinders Street to the MCG or the other way round. The buildings are around the Flinders Street area, which means we were walking back to town from the MCG.
