As for South Africa,



how embarrassing for you. read the proof and fucking weep you pathetic fool.
How is that a proof?
That was just the ACTING CEO saying " We will TRY to have a test next year". Until it happens, it is a speculation, not a proof

With SA already blaming low attendances during Boxing Day tests and SA getting a new sponsor for T20s, there is no surety this will happen.

As to NZ, yeah, they are contracted because they obviously want to play in IPL and are even ready to not play a test as long as they get a chance.

Anyway, Dhoni and his batting Especially when there was Rohit and Tiwary coming in next. NZ have 4-0 against India in T20s

Oh, and a great news to read

Quote:
The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have scrapped two Tests from Sri Lanka's tour of the West Indies next May and instead plan to play an ODI tri-series involving India. The decision also means that players from both teams will remain available during the IPL, which runs from April 3 to May 26 next year.
One more test series bites the dust

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

Yeah, when boards like SLC and WICB want to make some quick cash, they involve India and its behemoth viewership.

To be fair, their respective boards are quite poor. Sad, but I'd rather the players get paid what they deserve first.

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

Of course West Indies don't mind scrapping the Test series, so they can play IPL. All they care about is money. It certainly is not a cricket issue. It's all about money for them.

Also Darth, the "" is getting annoying now. Please stop.

Well, their board is almost bankrupt, so is SLC. No surprise that they want to involve India in an ODI series for the money.

WI players, understandably need to care for their futures and families, when the IPL offers them so much money, it's hard to blame them for going for it. Especially since their own board doesn't pay them well. When many WI players seek the IPL, the board has no choice to create space for a window.

Recently, SLC didn't have enough money to pay out their central contracts.

Darth, your posts would be nicer to read if you weren't so antagonistic all the time. Hard to give any of your opinions credence when all you do is try and seek confrontation.

Er, I am not the one saying that one form is important than the other. I am the one saying that test is one of the three forms of cricket, each of which is important in its own right. It is the former who are being confrontational.

All I am saying is that it is the personal preference which form to like and that the majority of cricket fans love limited overs rather than tests.

Actually you didn't just say that, If you just said that than no one would be telling you to go away.

Yes, majority do prefer ODI/T20's but pretty much just in sub-continent countries, In England/Australia all the test matches are pretty much sold out, at least all the games played at Lords are, but when you have that same Test match being played in India, it won't even draw half the stadium seats.

Depends, BCCI go out of their way to inconvenience fans.

example
- they hold tests in small cities, which dont draw crowds
- start matches on weekdays/or 5th day is on weekday
- lack of facilities in small city stadiums.

if they stuck to bangalore (india vs NZ had a close to sold out stadium), mumbai, delhi, kolkata, chennai etc (big cities). You will see packed houses for most Test matches, especially ones against Aus, England, Saf, etc.

Re: Cricket Discussion Thread

Cricket game tickets in India are as low as $2, you will NEVER see a ticket being sold for that much in Australia/England.

That should say enough, for all we know it's probably just the laborers filling up the seats in India, who buy cheap tickets just to pass the day by.

Totally different circumstances.
