  1. Depends towards the end there are going to be some worn out wickets Sent from my Wileyfox Swift using Tapatalk
  2. The BCCI’s image as the dominant global cricketing body, despite off field matters remains undiminished. Therefore it came as no surprise that there was intense competition in gaining a spot as the main sponsors of the Indian cricket team to tap into the vast following of the county's leading sport commands in the worlds fastest growing economy. Earlier this year, OPPO Mobiles India pvt ltd (OPPO) outbid VIVO and bagged the rights as the main sponsor of team India. This came at a cost of a whopping INR 1079.29 Cr for a 5 year association. It includes a minimum of 34 series/ICC tournaments (222 bilateral games and 32 ICC tournament matches). This makes the approximate cost per match rise to an all-time high of INR 4.21 Cr, nearly doubling the previous amount paid by Star for a similar sponsorship. OPPO now joins renowned local and global firms such as PayTm, PepsiCo and Hyundai among others as team India sponsors. They are known for their aggressive marketing and plan to attract younger viewers who are deeply passionate of Indian cricket. The company has stated that their selfie specific camera phones are aimed at the youth more than any other demographic. Mr. Rahul Johri, CEO of BCCI, expressed his joy in BCCI being associated with OPPO. He said that the scale of the sponsorship bids were a testimony to the strength of Indian cricket. Mr.Sky Li, President of OPPO India, feels cricket in India is not just a sport, it's a way of life akin to culture or religion. Li said, "We hope that we can co-operate with the cricket team, which will also help our brand value in the future” OPPO launched the new team India jersey at a glamorous ceremony in Mumbai earlier this month. Two members of staff represented the ICF community at this event. ICF and OPPO share the same desire of taking the cricketing experience for Indian fans to a whole new interactive level. We hope that this association with OPPO continues for a prolonged period. Team ICF wishes BCCI and OPPO the very best.We hope that this partnership will allow Indian cricket to propel itself into an even more glorious future. Cheers. ICF Staff

  4. rip meant to comment. Was part of BJP brains trust in MP in the 90s. Spearheaded parties challenge in tribal belts of (then Chhatisgrah)
  5. They should have 10 teams. The Pune fans deserve better. They have been so passionate and fantastic.
  6. regardless of the win I feel the batting needs updating. Pollard is providing diminishing returns with each season. Rayadu needs to be shown the door. there is something about M Johnson and Mumbai.2 time IPL champion with Mumbai. The player of the season IMO has been Krunal Pandya. Most promising find Nitish Rana. Dont know how many Mumbai can hold onto for next season. But it should be Rohit, Bumrah, Krunal, Rana, Butler. That is a very promising core. This season has all been about the franchise finding ways to win even when not in top gear. Never really felt Mumbai hit their peak this season. To top the league and bounce back from an eliminator loss speaks volumes.
  7. Congratulations Mumbai Indians!!!! I feel this was our worst batting line up. But one of the best bowling line ups. The fighters spirit is the most with this franchise. Thanks once again to asterix da who has been super in organizing the Mumbai Indian threads and fans. @asterix
  8. Re BJP and the elections. What people forget IMO is the agriculture after a long time is doing well. 272 million tonnes output is a record in India. Modi gov apart from certain spots in the country have got their agri policies spot on. Non farms data IMO is a bit misleading for a country like India where a big chunk of people are still involved in farming. In my village due to increased output farmer incomes have risen robustly. As for IT jobs and automation, the Indian middle class need to re balance. Focus needs to be on financial and auxiliary services. You look at the insurance sector LIC just declared 72% profit. So IMO once the NPA crisis with banks is over, demand in construction will be back and also those in IT need to shift their focus to services like banking. IE another middle class stream. Tourism is another sector which is growing strongly and creating jobs. http://www.livemint.com/Politics/QaPzDm93yRDdILauC2STTM/India-jumps-16-places-in-world-tourism-ranking.html So whats happening in India more than anything is a re balancing. Eventually IT will decline and in its place auxiliary financial services, tourism aviation etc will take their place.
  9. and Times of India are barking up the wrong tree if they think they can take down Arnab. BJP now have zee for vernacular and Republic for English.
  10. Arnab knows the middle class lean towards the right wing. They are the English new watchers. I am surprised it took somebody this long to realize there was money to be made by being right wing in this segment.
  11. I can reveal I used to bowl 170mph. I too was signed by RR but just before IPL I had a groin injury from all the attention I got from the ladies due to my pace. Worth it
  12. yes in t20. i meant for this format.
  13. looks like jadhav learnt from msd
