    I don't think ENG will pull out from the commonwealth Games.

    Besides unlike the WC, we have a chance of winning something!

    It is amazing why the games were awarded to India (given its "poor" track record of security) in the first place, if countries were to boycott them later.

    Perhaps this is another way of keeping their sportsperson intact till Olympics .

    The security at the 2009 World Badminton Championships held in India was tight.

    Yes, hope that security for our sportspersons at the 2010 CWG will be as tight as it could be.

    Default Commonwealth Games: Chief promises problems will be resolved

    Things are in great shape," said the president of the London-based Commonwealth Games Federation.

    "We had hoped all the venues would be ready ahead of time so we could test them, but they will be completed ahead of the start of the Games."

    Default Transfers in DDA May Affect Commonwealth Games Work

    Rumu Banerjee , TNN, Apr 1, 2010, 03.11am IST

    NEW DELHI: Months before the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) was to complete the two Commonwealth Games complexes — Siri Fort and Yamuna Sports Complex — the land agency has transferred key officials of the project. Interestingly, it has also extended the internal deadline that had been set for completion, from March 31 to May 31 now.

    While top DDA officials claimed the move was administrative, sources in the agency said the transfers couldn’t have come at a worse time. ‘‘The projects are at a critical state, and any new official who takes charge will need some time to understand the issues,’’ said a senior official. It’s especially critical for the Siri Fort Sports Complex, which will be hosting the Asia Badminton Championship in April. Sources said while the FOP (field of play) and playing courts have been completed at the squash and badminton stadium, a large part of the work still remains to be completed. This was supposed to have been finished by this month-end.

    Default Delhi Games opening ceremony to be ‘better than Beijing’

    “The opening ceremony, the way it has been planned, it’ll be the best ever,” T.S. Darbari, joint director general of the New Delhi Games’ organising committee, told Australia’s AAP news agency.
    “Better than Melbourne, better than any Commonwealth Games, better than Beijing – it’s a guarantee.”
    “It’s going to be tight but it will happen,” said Darbari, who also shrugged off costs that have ballooned to about US$2bil – nearly twice Melbourne’s 2006 Games.
    “So what. It happens everywhere,” he said.

    The security at the 2010 Badminton Asia Championships, while good, was more extreme than Airports. It can give rise to issues with backpackers. 3 major security checkpoints + 3 to 5 ticket checkpoints. Not to mention ticket purchase was done in the extreme heat a good 1 km away.

    No coins, notebook PCs, cameras, tripods, umbrellas, water, pens etc were admitted and only press can bring their equipment in. That the mobile phone and wallets were still allowed (after scanning) was a relief.

    Thumbs up IMHO, to be troubled with the extreme security at checkpoints is worth it

    IMHO, it's better feeling relief while watching the matches.

    To be troubled with the extreme security at checkpoints is worth it.

    I don't think that Indians can come up with a ceremony better than beijing, hopefully it will be good, though. And I can't think of England withdrawing, No offense, but it will prove that English sports governors are so stupid / rude or dumb prouds. CWG is something that England should be the first to participate in as its something like their own.

    Default Badminton: Indians set to be a threat to M'sia at C'wealth Games

    “We used to dominate the singles event and with our players making a 1-2 sweep in the individual event. But now we have to be wary of the growing threat from India,” he said.

    “(Lee) Chong Wei will be the favourite. But the other Malaysians will find the going tough based on their current form and we have to seriously look into this.”

    On Hafiz’s injury, Rashid said: “He complained of pain in the right knee during training but he was doing fine after getting some treatment.

    “It’s unfortunate that he has been hit by injuries again.

    “We will now have to evaluate his participation in the Singapore and Indonesia Opens later this month. We will pull him out if the injury is serious.”
