And the demands just keep getting worse. Last week, for instance, the BCCI announced it would be adding 25 offshore one-day internationals to India's already rammed itinerary - the majority, undoubtedly, will be against Pakistan. It was a move greeted with understandable dismay by the men whose duty it is to stick to that treadmill day-in, day-out. Cricinfo has learned that not even India's 4-0 clean-sweep was enough to appease their taskmasters, who were concerned that to rest key players in the dead-rubber matches that followed would offend the relevant hosting associations.I think it is actually becoming quite fashionable to blame the BCCI for all the ills in modern cricket. The fact of the matter is that every cricket board is trying to do its best to milk the players' far in excess of what they're being paid. It just happens in different ways.
