Re: Ideas to improve cricket

The idea of playing for olympics is to make game popular around the world. Olympics got more visibility. If a new nation want to join cricket playing for Olympics what should they do? Copy a nation that’s already playing. Now if these nations play too many diff types of cricket that confuse the hel...

Re: Sri Lankan Players pull out of Pakistan Tour

NZ, Australia, Canada, even countries in the EU - these don't aspire to be world superpowers. They just want to provide a good standard of living for their citizens, and a safe living environment for them. They focus on wealth creation and equitable wealth distribution, so that all, or at least a ma...

Re: Sri Lankan Players pull out of Pakistan Tour

Unlike NZ, Australia etc, India today is a country full of contradictions. It aspires to be a world superpower, like the USA, economically and militarily. But it has very real grassroot problems of malnutrition and poverty of millions. It is not able to reconcile the two. This angers many privileged...

Re: Ideas to improve cricket

I don't understand the issue here. If cricket is at the Olympics, it can be no longer than a T20 game. Might even be a 100. But max duration it will have will be a T20 game. And there will be enough opportunity to practise T20 for Olympics. Today many players are T20 specialists, so their Olympics r...

Re: Sri Lankan Players pull out of Pakistan Tour

Raja I think you have been brainwashed by Pakistani media. So you believe that India is the aggresor and Pakistan is the victim ? That Pakistan has won all the wars against India ? So the photograph of Pakistan general surrendering in 1972 is fake ? So Pakistani army did not massacre 3 million of t...

Re: Sri Lankan Players pull out of Pakistan Tour

I started by saying that India, the country, is just like BCCI the bully. :-) That's at the root of everything. They are powerful in South Asia, so they want to show off their power, by mocking those weaker than them, especially Pakistan. Having compassion for the oppressed is not an Indian trait, j...

Re: Sri Lankan Players pull out of Pakistan Tour

I blame UK as the cause for doing such a shoddy job of the separation that led to even enabling the Kashmir mess. But it was 72 years ago, both sides could take some responsibility here for not finding peace with their neighbour. Yes, UK Ireland took a long time but they got there. Your two countri...
