    Bucknor all set to have his wish granted, Rudi moves one step closer

    Over two years ago, Bucknor made it amply clear that he didn't want West Indies in the World Cup final, and that is exactly what happened.

    A year ago, Rudi Koertzen had a similar wish, and South Africa are one step away from increasing the chances of his dream becoming a reality.

    Try my warped logic. Now we know why the BCCI has ensured that there is no umpire on the ICC's Elite panel. Given the high profile nature of Indian cricket, it is fairly obvious that other cricket boards would be waiting in a huge queue to get India to play against them (No tests please, we're the BCCI!). This therefore means that Indian umpires will not umpire lots of games. The solution is obviously to ensure that there're no Indian umpires around, because the other one (sending the Indian team to lesser number of tournaments) is clearly unacceptable.

    A very interesting point... :) Perhaps BCCI does see its strategy working!
