The sports enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting this mega sporting event which has a distinct position in the world of sports. This is an opportunity for the sportspersons to make a mark in their chosen sports.
The venue for this event is Delhi, which presents an intriguing panorama of the old and the new, the historically majestic and the technologically advanced, in its vicinity. The players can enjoy all the modern amenities and if they find time, go on a tour of Delhi for some sight seeing. The historical monuments abound in this city and they come in various descriptions. Delhi and Hamilton were in the fray for hosting this event. It came as no surprise Delhi was selected as it has got to be a much better suited. This is true in any way you choose to look at it.
