Breaking/Brief news

    The skeletons tumble out of the BCCI closet

    Sharad Pawar's daughter claimed a couple of months ago that her family did not financially benefit from the IPL. The bit to note there is that she did not claim her family was not connected to the IPL at all. What she said was that they did not financially benefit. i.e. their investment was a flop.

    That's akin to a burglar claiming that he should have been let off since he had been caught by the police before he stole anything.

    When Chirayu Amin was made the interim IPL commissioner after Lalit Modi was sacked, I wondered about the linkages between Shashank Manohar, Sharad Pawar and Chirayu Amin.

    The news that Chirayu Amin was part of a consortium led by a company partly owned by Sharad Pawar & family reinforces my belief that there's a serious clean-up act needed in the BCCI.

    Now, the only bit of the puzzle that's not yet evident is the fact that Shashank Manohar and Chirayu Amin have a business / family relationship as well.

    'Conflict of interest' seems such an archaic term. Maybe we should just call it a 'cabal of interests'.

    Louis Brandeis, a member of the US Supreme Court, once wrote in a 1913 edition of "Harper's weekly":
    Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman.

    It's high time the same principles were applied to the BCCI.

    It announced earlier this week that there would be no Indian participation in the cricket event at the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games.

    I've got no problems with that. The BCCI is the governing body for cricket, and it is well within its right to identify which tournaments it's contracted players participate in.

    However, the BCCI then went on to clarify that the decision was taken since the schedules were made well in advance and that the domestic season would be underway.

    This is where I have a problem. Somehow, it seems inconceivable that the BCCI fixes up schedules in advance or adheres to schedules drawn up well in advance doesn't quite.

    After all, among other recent achievements, they've tried to tweak around with a scheduled 7 ODI series against Australia, successfully tweaked a 2 test 5 ODI series against New Zealand, agreed to a tour of Zimbabwe at short notice & urgently scheduled multiple series involving Sri Lanka.

    It so obviously has something to do with the fact that the BCCI would need to be WADA-compliant for the cricket team to be allowed to play at the Asian Games. After all, if the main side was too busy, it wouldn't have been tough to put together a 2nd XI.

    Yousuf pathan is an opener but he is not getting opening place , he is dangerous player like sehwag but he do not get the opportunity to bat as an opener as DHONI and his friend RAINA do not want that he got the permanent seat in INDIAN TEAM , he got the opportunity of just 5 balls in the first match against zimbabwe as every one know that he is capable to destroy the zimbabwe so he get only 5 balls in the first match , and in the second match against srilanka he did not get the opportunity and in the third match he again get the position of number 8 player as this is just like that Indian team do not want him , they are promoting ravinder jadeja to show him superior than pathan .

    Just ask one question is there only one muslim is able to come in INDIAN TEAM out of 100 CRORE people .

    IRFAN pathan can bowl and can bat more batter than dinesh karthik, ravinder jadeja, and many other players but he do not get the oppotunity because he is also a MUSLIM

    Indian Cricket is doing the partiality in selection, they are just removing good players as they are MUSLIM , and it is their just a you can say MAJBOORI that is why they just include only one player as yusuf pathan and do not give the oppotunity to play many time .

    They today give him the opportunity on 4th place when they are in trouble against srilanka as srilanka bowlers are very good they wanted to get yusuf out cheaply but he made valuable 44 runs ,

    whenever the strong team comes or any danger comes they give the pathan in the front and when any weak team comes they just do not give the opportunity to him as he is muslim

    every body know the ability of yusuf but here in INDIAN team he is not getting support as he get in the IPL from shane warne , shane warne give him the confidence to play as he wants to play but here in INDIAN TEAM first he did not get the opportunity , once he get the opportunity , he always get the strong bowlers only.

    90% of the times you will see that he got runout by the mistake of his own partner . this is not a mistake , this is to grade down the yusuf
