Bearing the flag overseas

One good thing about having so many English fans at the Wankhede is the effect it has on the crowd ambience. There is plenty of applause for English boundaries, and the overall noise levels remain higher, thus adding to the general buzz. If I'm not mistaken, Mohali is the only ground in India that serves beer, and so, things are back to normal here at Mumbai for English fans i.e., simply baking in the sun (in the uncovered stands) with shirt off. I must confess, I'm puzzled by the lack of concern for things like sunburn, heat stroke, skin cancer or dehydration. No hats, no shirts? I can see sunscreen (or so I think), and I hope like hell they all have water bottles.
