Fennell has already toned don his criticism of the preparations, and Delhi it seems, has got the wake-up call loud and clear.
More endorsement also came from the CGF President, who had just recently criticised the slow pace of work.
"One of the comforting facts is the attention has been paid by the Government of India through Minister Gill (Union Sports Minister MS Gill) who has given an unqualified assurance that all the resources that are necessary to ensure successful Games in 2010 will be provided by the government," Fennell said.
The Commonwealth Games Federation Assembly will debate whether Delhi has passed the test for now. Delegates from all 71-member countries have been visiting all the venues over the last few days.
Some have made their opinions known but a final word is awaited even as the organising committee has been calling the visits a success.
Reports published last month suggested that CGF thinks that the games will be partial failure. But after that wakeup call, the organisers seem to have got their act together and are now working overtime to bring things back on track.
