    How the BCCI did nothing for three years about cricket at the Guangzhou Asian Games

    Last week, the BCCI declared that India would not be represented at the Guangzhou Asian Games later this year. It cited a series against New Zealand and the domestic cricket schedule as the reasons.

    On the face of it, the reasons are fairly sound. You can't expect cricketers to play round the year. Previously drawn up fixtures should take precedence. There's nothing wrong in giving domestic cricket its due.

    However, it doesn't take a lot to debunk the BCCI's arguments.

    Anyone who has followed or managed Indian domestic cricket knows that the domestic season starts around August / September and goes on until February / March.

    The BCCI would have become aware of cricket's inclusion in the schedule at least in 2007 when the Olympic Council of Asia and the Asian Cricket Council made announcements confirming that cricket would be a medal sport at Guangzhou 2010.

    A year earlier, the ICC announced the Future Tours Programme schedule for the period 2006-2012.

    In other words, one year before cricket was included in the Guangzhou Asiad, the BCCI knew that there was a scheduling conflict since the Future Tours Programme schedule specified that India would host New Zealand in November 2010.

    The BCCI was obviously party to both decisions, since it is a full member of the ICC since 1926 and a founding member of the Asian Cricket Council, founded in 1983.

    Yet, it chose to keep mum for three years, before announcing that it wouldn't be sending a team. You have to wonder why it chose to do so!

    The news that BCCI declared that India would not be represented at the Guangzhou Asian Games, is strange and good to read.
