Rumour mills were abuzz over whether the English contingent will make their presence felt at the opening ceremony or most of their members will give it a slip. But when Nathan Robertson led the 300-odd members inside the stadium, they instantly won over the spectators with their choice of attire. They sported a traditional Indian look with a kurta and Nehru jacket.

“It was our Chef de Mission Craig Hunter’s idea,” said the team spokesperson. “He decided that it would be nice to honour our hosts.”
