Another question.
On RSSSF: all Matches were played at "Ambedkar Stadium".
On:
1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhyan_Chand_National_Stadium
2) http://www.hindustantimes.com/News-Feed/newdelhi/Imperial-Impressions/Article1-723461.aspx
3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Football_at_the_1951_Asian_Games

they say that Games were hosted at "Dhyan Chand National Stadium".

What does it mean?
That Ceremonies and other sports (like Athletics. etc) were hosted at the bigger "Dhyan Chand" and football Matches at the smaller "Ambedkar"?
Or something else?

Indonesia won, as confirmed by Indonesian newspapers. I did not find this match mentioned in the Indian newspapers which I consulted, though maybe it was mentioned in some other Delhi or Rangoon newspaper.

This is a mistake, they were at the National Stadium (now named Dhyan Chand Stadium, and now used mainly for hockey). I will ask for this to be corrected.
