Even if all you say is correct Bruce why hasnt Auckland got a Cricket test venue and an up to date stadium which has been built in other areas.?Wellington is smaller than Hamilton and Christchurch. It is not a big city and it is only a capital because of government. Most head offices are in Auckland. Athletic Park was dead so had to be replaced. It was a poor decision to make the Cake Tin Oval but that was probably because they needed the money from one day cricket. The Basin Reserve is a great ground for test cricket and there is no real reason why we cannot have a similar ground in Auckland.
The horrible reality for rah rahs is that their beloved Eden Park is going to be concrete and clay, just like our beloved Carlaw Park, so get over it and get used to Fritz's weiners at MSS.
