Peshawar, here we come

I'm looking forward to the first one-day international tonight; despite my general apathy about that form of the game, this is India-Pakistan, and the game will be played in Peshawar. I've never seen anything broadcast live from that city, and a game of cricket sounds like the way to start things. I hope there'll be plenty of panned shots around the ground, and that things will start with a Pakistani pace attack going full-tilt at two Indian openers in front of a noisy, boisterous crowd. Peshawar provides the right amount of novelty for this new set of matches - a little touch of the out-there, sufficiently off the beaten path to tempt us all into feeling like pseudo-pioneers, even if in my case, it only means settling down on a cold winter's night in New York, clicking on links to bring alive a small video window.
