    Cricket Australia accedes to BCCI's demand on umpires

    In breaking news available only to this blog, Cricket Australia has agreed to a quid-pro-quo with the BCCI which will ensure that the BCCI supports Cricket Australia's thoughts for Australian and English umpires umpiring this summer's Ashes.

    All that the BCCI has asked for is that Cricket Australia allow SK Bansal and AV Jayaprakash to stand in as umpires when Australia next tours India for tests. As a bonus, Cricket Australia have agreed to the BCCI's proposal that Darrell Hair would appear in commercials to promote the SG brand of balls, the manufacturers of which are faced with the distinict possibility of going out of business.

    Sources in to Cricket Australia confirmed to this correspondent that since Australia had anyway won in India after 35 years in 2004, they weren't overly concerned about the potential home team bias involved in the BCCI's proposal. "What's yet another series win in India compared to winning back the Ashes, mate?", the source remarked snobbishly.
