Cricket-New Zealand v India third one day match – scoreboard

March 8 (Reuters) – Scoreboard at the end of the third one
day international between India and New Zealand at Lancaster
Park, Christchurch on Sunday.

I noticed you refer to “Lancaster Park” in Christchurch, New Zealand. The name of the Stadium was changed to AMI Stadium in August 2007, named after a local fire and general insurance company, and we would appreciate it if the name AMI Stadium could be used in future articles.


It is our policy not to use a sponsor’s name when a ground has traditionally been known as something else, like Lancaster Stadium in this case. FYI, we did not call it Jade stadium in its previous sponsorship incarnation, either: GBU Editor

Your coverage of Jon Stewart vs CNBC is hilarious and clearly indicates how owned you are by big business interests. You entirely ignored the real story, PRAVDA at its prime could not have done better. Congratulations comrades!
