  4. Very sad but true: Shami may never play for India again

    Thats an allegation. If he used to get such a steady supply its impossible no one got a whiff, esp. Media.
  5. Very sad but true: Shami may never play for India again

    His wife can allege him to be an alien. All this has to be proved in the court.
  6. Very sad but true: Shami may never play for India again

    Why should his personal life affect his playing career?
  7. 500 & 1000 rs notes stopped from tonight

  8. He can certainly jump the queue if Dinesh Karthik like people are in front of him. The minimum 20test rule to be a selector needs to be implemented.

    Hiw did people miss Sagarika Ghose in the worst list? Her husband rajdeep is another one.
  12. Yea, with his current association with ICC you expect him to accept his drug history.
  13. http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/22555014/bcci-power-struggle-puts-day-night-test-plans-hold The world is playing day night test but this 70yr old guy has a problem with it. What does he want? A referendum to be held in India? This CoA has pushed Indian cricket back by 5 years. The faster these idiots leave BCCI, the better.
  14. Does the CoA and Mr.Rai know that India is the only major test nation not to play a day night test? Is Mr. Rai aware that his Co CoA member approved a dole out of 15L to her own sister? Is that not conflict of interest? Will Mr. Rai stepdown in 4 months time when he turns 70? Like he wants bcci chiefs to? This whole CoA was a disaster from the start. Only one man had any idea of how to run bcci which was like a corporate giant and that was Vikram Limaye. Diana Edulji is a nobody in Indian cricket. Its a shame she gets to run BCCI while a Kapil Dev or a Gavaskar or Laxman or Srinath or so many big names dont. Ramchandra Guha was another laughable selection, a historian to run cricket. Now we have Diana Edulji and Vinod Rai running indian cricket. This is utter nonsense.
  15. As per the report, ICC has not even applied for an exemption with the Indian government, considering they themselves would have to share their own revenue patterns and all related papers with the authorities in order to avail an exemption. A lot has been spoken about the International Cricket Council's plan to take away the hosting rights of 2021 ICC Champions Trophy as well as the 2023 World Cup from India, in the wake of Indian government's resistance over giving the apex body a tax exemption. While the threat of losing the rights of the two major ICC events looms large, the BCCI has reportedly warned that it will invoke the Members Participation Agreement (MPA) if such a scenario becomes reality. As per a TOI report, sources aware of the developments said: “Should the ICC use tax exemptions from Indian government as an excuse to make up for their own losses and propose the shifting of tournaments, it will lead to a disaster. India will pull out of all agreements.” “The matter came up when the ICC board expressed their concern around the absence of tax exemption from the Indian Government for ICC events held in India, despite ongoing efforts from both the ICC and BCCI to secure the exemption which is a standard practice for major sporting events around the world,” the ICC statement had said after a meeting earlier this month. ICC’s independent chairman Shashank Manohar, who is gearing up for a re-election to the chair in June this year, is said to have won the previous elections because of his resolve to do away with the financial model first dictated by India. Those speaking for the BCCI say that “now those numbers in the present cycle cannot be compensated so India’s tax laws can’t be used as an excuse”. The TOI report further reveals that the ICC has not even applied for an exemption with the Indian government, considering they themselves would have to share their own revenue patterns and all related papers with the authorities in order to avail an exemption. The BCCI, however, says ICC — despite Manohar at the helm — expects them to start a dialogue with the government and expects India to clear past tax dues, including the 2016 World T20. “This is a joke, unless, there are individuals doing this to protect their own chairs after projecting financial surpluses that now cannot be justified,” a source tracking the developments told TOI. In the worst case scenario where the ICC decides to shift two major cricket tournaments outside of India, in order to compensate for their own losses of US$100m, the stand-off between them and the BCCI will surely get ugly. This time, the BCCI will not flinch in invoking its rights through the MPA. India’s losses in those newly proposed ICC revenues don’t mean a thing. The proposed loss is not even enough to make up for what the BCCI earns through a single bilateral or two (Star pays Rs 43 crore per match according to the present contract and the renewed one is expected to fetch more in the new bidding). To make up for the rest of the world, you can’t take a tournament of this magnitude away from India,” the source added while speaking about the matter. India last hosted an ICC event in 2016 – ICC World Twenty20 – but a tax exemption was not given by the government. ICC’s latest decision to search for an alternative venue for both 2021 and 2023, however, has not gone down well with the Indian cricket board. http://www.timesnownews.com/sports/cricket/article/bcci-to-break-away-from-icc-if-2021-champions-trophy-2023-world-cup-hosting-rights-taken-away-report/199051
  16. Modi’s snub of Justin Trudeau

  17. And how will icc survive with 70% of its revenue gone?
  18. Modi’s snub of Justin Trudeau

    India is not answerable to canadians in any way. They can think whatever they want, they can do jack. They though carried out the worst terror related air disaster till 9/11 Regarding 1984 riot, its a separate issue and the perpetrators must be brought to justice. But seems sikhs in India have forgotten that as they have elected congress govts in Punjab and Delhi. Dont know what locus standi some canadian has in this matter.
