Melbourne, Aug 19 (PTI) For a country of over a billion, India should have been better-placed just 45 days before the Commonwealth Games, feels Australian Commonwealth Games Association chief Perry Crosshwhite but he believes Delhi would get over the scandal-marred build-up to pull off a successful show.
"You have to say you're disappointed because this is a fantastic thing for India ... 1.2 billion people and wouldn't it be fantastic that everyone could have a great feeling about these games," Crosswhite told reporters today.
"There's still a possibility of that happening, but you would have hoped they'd be in better shape at this point in time," he added.
Asked whether he thought Delhi could get its act together in time to host the October 3 to 14 event, Crosswhite said, "I do."
