Details - anagram of side(team) and tea
detail= de-tail. So chop the tail (M) off team which gives tea
I don't think that anagram works danny as I tried that
Ignore my post.
india is i in the phonetic alphabet
Being pedantic, today's DT cryptic isn't a prize crossword, is it?
That may be the fault of the AB title builder
Ah, ok, thanks fiction-factory, that would explain it.
llanfair//Being pedantic, today's DT cryptic isn't a prize crossword, is it?//
No.
Maybe not. Just tried it and although the default is PRIZE there is a drop down box option of Cryptic. It's a bit unwieldy though
i found this parse after googling but i still don't quite follow it ...
DETAILS – To make ‘team’ into ‘tea’ we have to remove the last letter. If the first letter is the head, the last letter could be the —-, to which we need to add a prefix indicating removal, and an S on the end to make the putative verb answer match case with ‘makes’ in the clue.


ael. that is one of the worst parses ever, far too convoluted.
thanks danny, i thought it was just me :-)
