    As a woman cricketer of some repute and coming from a time when everything was far more discriminatory for women, she must have faced the discrimination and that is what she has spoken about.

    Unless you believe that there has been no discrimination against women ever....( which I think  is quite possible ....look up the word red piller ) ,I don't understand why you are upset with what she has said based on her experience .


    But for some one who equates being a women with a handicap....your argument fits .







    Woman's cricket exists because Men's cricket financially subsidizes it. People turn up to watch the men's game.


    Cricket is popular in India because of the Men cricketers.

    FYI women's cricket was run by a separate board and was a dying game before BCCI assumed charge of it.


    Dianda Edulji is a nobody in world cricket. No one would know her if she wasnot made a CoA member by SC.


    Btw the Lodha reforms said that there should be a compulsory Players association, Edulji hasnot spoken a word on it. Wonder why.


    She can be feminist as much as she wants, but bcci and Indian cricket cant be held hostage to her extreme feminist views.

    LOL what do you know about her?

    She was born and brought up in the UK. Why exactly should she flaunt her Indian heritage?

    I guess you missed the parts of commentary on when India toured where she'd bang on about proper Bengali cuisine with Sunny.


    Well said. The hypocrisy is strong in these people.

  3. Another half fit player picked and he gets injured again during the match. In last 4 months,


    Bhuvi Kumar

    R Ashwin

    Hardik Pandya?

    Kedar Jadhav

    Shardul Thakur


    Have played despite carrying injury and have aggravated it.


    Bhuvi was played with a back injury in England and he aggravated it and missed the tests.


    Ashwin was played in the 4th test with an injury.


    Thakur was injured in Asia cup and comes back in the test team without playing a single domestic game to prove his fitness.


    Dont know if Kedar Jadhav had played a match before coming back to the Indian team in Asia cup.


    Will Pandya go to Aus without playing a domestic game post his injury recovery?


    Who is accountable? Who is asking the selectors why are they picking injured players? Who is questioning the team management?


    What is the experts of everything CoA doing? The proficient CoA, who are pundits in everything and appointed by the all knowing SC, what are they doing?

  4. Sure, but after a few days of effigies, majority of cricket fans won't want the BCCI to boycott the ODI World Cup.  That's the issue, boycotting the ODI WC is an empty threat.  
    No its not. Tell people how icc is funding pakistan and terrorism in india indirectly. They will not look at the WC. Without India there will not be a WC.

  5. Are you aware that FIFA bans football federations if they decide that there is too much government interference?  
    Bottomline, BCCI by virtue of membership of the ICC, has agreed to to abide by the rules and policies of the ICC.  And will have to accept this farce of a verdict that can't be appealed.  

    Foreign policy and laws have to be followed. Fifa cant do anything about it. Teams boycott Israel many times.

    Laws of the land trump any such laws of sporting bodies. WADA has had to face many such thrashings in courts.

    The "unappealable" judgement isnt really unappealable. All such arbitration awards are subject to being rejected if they are againist the laws of the country its applied in. Thats part of the 1996 arbitration act.
