WINNIPEG - Call it "Home Improvement, the CFL Edition." CFL stadiums are being replaced or refurbished at a pace probably unmatched in league history, starting this season with the opening of a new home for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. In 2014, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will move into a new facility while the expansion Ottawa Redblacks are projected to call a revamped Frank Clair Stadium home. And in 2017, the Saskatchewan Roughriders are scheduled to move into a new open-air venue to replace Mosaic Stadium. Existing facilities in Calgary and Edmonton get upgrades this season to make the game-day experience nicer for their fans. The big story this year is Investors Group Field in Winnipeg. A year behind schedule, a lot about the new facility drew rave reviews: the player areas, sightlines, comfortable seats and fancy suites and concessions. But there are kinks to be worked out. Cracks in the concrete are being repaired and then theres the small matter of getting 33,400 people on and off the campus of the University of Manitoba in time to actually watch football games. "I think it was great (but) I have a feeling people will have to figure out the traffic patterns," Bombers coach Tim Burke after the seasons first exhibition game at the stadium. That was a bit of an understatement. The pre-season game against the Toronto Argonauts had almost 5,000 empty seats by the time the official count was taken despite most having been sold. Bomber president Garth Buchko apologized the next day for the massive traffic congestion that stranded so many and promised better for the first regular-season game Thursday against Montreal. More buses and bus-only lanes, plus earlier access to parking spots, are among the cures the team is hoping will ease the pain. "Weve got a lot of work to do," said Buchko. "We have to get better and we will get better." Parking is scarce but, after two years of planning, they also werent prepared for the 60 per cent larger crowd than estimated who opted for public transit to reach the $200-million stadium. Even staff who man concessions were caught in the snarl, leaving fans who could get inside standing in long lines at those food and beverage outlets which were able to open. And, in a city often referred to as "Winterpeg," the open-air pressbox has already received a thumbs down from the CFL if the Bombers want to host a Grey Cup. They do and renovations are planned. This season, the Ticats will play their home games at Alumni Stadium in Guelph, Ont., as a new $145.7-million facility is built where venerable Ivor Wynne Stadium used to stand. The Ticats are scheduled to move into the venue in 2014 with the facility slated to hold the 2015 Pan American Games soccer competition as well. Until then, the CFL team will spend a cosy year at Alumni, which even after expansion will seat about 13,000. The Ticats will practise at McMaster in Hamilton and also play a home game in Moncton, N.B. When the new stadium is complete, it will initially seat 22,500 with standing room for another 1,500. But it will also have 700 club seats and 30 VIP suites and the potential expanded capacity of 40,000 for special events like the Grey Cup. Ticats owner Bob Young says the new facility will generate more revenue that could go back into stadium improvements. "With more revenue you can do more things," he said. "With the money we can make in the new stadium its going to be interesting to see where, between ourselves and the city, we eventually take this stadium. "Were thrilled and very grateful at the way it has turned out." Hamilton quarterback Henry Burris said the players have quickly adopted Alumni Stadium as their home. "This is already home," he said. "Honestly, with this team that we have we really dont care where were playing but were so happy to be here at Guelph. "To be able to play in this atmosphere, were excited about it. Guys have come and made this home. Roughriders officials, meanwhile, have visited the new Winnipeg stadium and taken notes with their $278-million project in Regina following a similar pattern of covered seating over an open field. Riders president Jim Hopson has said he likes what he sees but suggests they will also learn from Winnipegs mistakes. The province, city and team are footing the bill in Regina, after a much more ambitious plan for a domed stadium failed to get federal money needed to proceed. In Ottawa, a $450-million, public-private redevelopment of Lansdowne Park is finally underway, including a 24,000-seat stadium set to open in 2014 when Redblacks are projected to join the CFL. The project had to clear legal and political hurdles for the CFL to return to the Canadian capital since indefinitely suspending the Ottawa Renegades franchise in 2006. "The facility is going to be second to none, thats not to say other cities dont have that, but its very important, said Redblacks GM Marcel Desjardins. Calgarys McMahon Stadium escaped major damage sustained in recent flooding there. It will boast new seats in corner end zones with plans for new concessions, washrooms and VIP areas. "Weve covered up half the aluminum seats with customized inserts, so thats going to look a lot better and going to feel a lot better for the fans who are sitting there in those sections," said Gord Norrie, the Stampeders new president. Edmonton Eskimos fans are getting more comfortable places to rest their hopes as well in the upper bowl at Commonwealth Stadium, as it enters the final phase of a $12-million plan to replace all seats. Montreal and Vancouver football fans havent been left out of the picture as both Molson Stadium and B.C. Place have received recent facelifts.

On Sunday night, Cheteshwar Pujara posted a group selfie on Instagram. In it, sharing a dinner table, were himself, Shikhar Dhawan, M Vijay and KL Rahul.When we r together, Pujara captioned it, we make the most out of our time.On Tuesday morning, the four of them will not be together on the team sheet Virat Kohli hands to the match referee. Three will line up at the top of Indias batting order. The fourth will find a place near the bottom of the list, among the substitutes. Cricket is a very uncertain game at times, Kohli said when he was asked the inevitable question on Monday. Injuries are not in anyones hands. Even in the IPL, I remember a game where Mandeep Singh was fit and set to play. While I was at the toss he split his webbing. KL [Rahul] got a chance and he hasnt looked back since. We conveyed to Mandeep that unfortunately it was an injury and nothing can be done about that.We need to look at the balance of the side. Good thing is all three openers are playing well. Bad thing is that you can only choose two between three. That is a call we need to take as management. Well sit down today and do that. These things are not in your control, getting injured when playing well. Thats why they say injuries can really upset people and bring them down. The good thing is Vijay has been in a good headspace. Hes back to the nets and back to fielding. Well take a call on that. We still have to discuss that.Vijay is the equivalent of Mandeep in this situation. He injured his thumb during the first Test, and missed the second. Rahul replaced him and scored 158.But that is where the comparison ends. Mandeep and Rahul were more or less equal contenders for a spot in Royal Challengers Bangalores line-up in that match against Gujarat Lions. Both were young and mostly unproven T20 talents hoping to establish themselves. One got injured, the other played in his stead, and made the most of his opportunity. It must not have been too difficult for Kohli to tell a fit-again Mandeep he would have to wait a little longer.Vijays case is entirely different. Since the start of Indias tour of England in 2014, he has the best average among all of Indias Test batsmen. He has made hundreds in England, Australia and Bangladesh, and an important second-innings 82 in Sri Lanka, where he missed two out of three Tests with injury. In the home series against South Africa in November-December 2015, Indias last Test assignment before this West Indies tour, Vijay was Indias second-highest run-getter on pitches that were square turners by and large.You cant easily leave out a baatsman of that quality, with those numbers behind him, because he got injured and his replacement made a hundred.dddddddddddd. Kohli, of course, hadnt actually said Vijay would sit out the St Lucia Test. He said India would still need to take a call on the situation. Going by what he said, though, it seems one of the three openers - Vijay, Rahul and Dhawan - will miss out, while Pujara keeps his place at No. 3.On Monday, anyone looking for clues in Indias training session at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium will have gone back disappointed. Vijay and Pujara were the first two batsmen in the nets, and they each spent more than half an hour batting there. Dhawan and Rahul were the next two batsmen in - they had been having slip-catching practice while Vijay and Pujara batted. There was no way to tell which of the four would miss out.Pujara has had a strange series so far, looking in good defensive shape in both innings he has played. He has spent a lot of time in the middle - helping India win a couple of crucial sessions before falling against the run of play - without being able to convert his starts into substantial scores.Ordinarily, without the intense competition among the openers, Pujaras place would probably not have come under question just yet. India may have simply viewed it as a case of a player being on the verge of a big score. If they do retain Pujara, this may well be one reason for doing so. The other, obvious reason would be that leaving him out would force one of the openers to bat at No. 3. While its only one step down the batting order, its still a different role.If Pujara keeps his place, he will be under pressure to show he can overcome his tendency to get out after making promising starts, which has afflicted him more or less since that 2014 England tour. Dhawan too will be under pressure. He has made one substantial score in this series - 84 in Antigua - and could therefore consider himself unlucky if he happens to be the batsman dropped. But in his last 10 Test innings, including that 84, he has only scored 289 runs at an average of 32.11.Before that stretch of iffy form, Dhawan had scored back-to-back hundreds against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. He may not have had the opportunity to play those knocks had Rahul not been ruled out of the series with dengue.Just over a year later, virtually the same scenario has played out all over again, with the same cast and the roles swapped around.
