    BCCI in deep excreta

    The BCCI seems to be in major trouble after its chief revealed that if the TV rights issue is not resolved in time, Pakistan's tour of India will be a non-starter for the same reasons that Australia's tour of India seemed to be in jeapordy: TV coverage is essential for the third umpire at international matches. As it is, the BCCI suggested that it had incurred huge losses due to the imbroglio.

    The BCCI is also in trouble with the Indian government after the Home ministry barred players from displaying the tri-colour on their equipment, sporting gear or person. This is obviously aimed at the BCCI since the players are very much in favour of displaying the tri-colour. The BCCI had, in September last year, claimed in an argument in the Supreme Court that the Indian team represented the BCCI and not India. This was in the context of whether the government was allowed to have any say in its functioning. The issue in court was its decision to cancel the TV rights issue in spite of Zee Telefilms having the highest bid.
