    Frm that article:

    "India's newly-acquired position atop the Test rankings was under threat because they were only scheduled to play two Tests in the next 11 months, which explains its sudden interest in playing more Tests. Cricket South Africa has invariably tried to ensure they don't land on the wrong side of the BCCI, so it is likely India will get its wish and Test cricket will have a stellar showdown to look forward to."

    Damn if you, damn if u dont. Wish sumone tld this guy India played extra test in NZ.

    Sorry one more rant:

    Please see the table in this article -> India's spell at the top not in their hands | Cricket Features | India v Sri Lanka 2009/10 | Cricinfo.com


    Team Matches Points Rating
    India 32 3957 124
    South Africa 30 3672 122
    Australia 31 3600 116
    Sri Lanka 31 3574 115
    England 39 4102 105
    Pakistan 17 1424 84
    New Zealand 25 2001 80
    West Indies 25 1910 76
    Bangladesh 19 255 13

    According to that India has played 32 test matches in the ranking period, which is second only to England's 39. How come a nation which is supposedly killing test cricket by scheduling less matches play that many number of tests even more than Australia or South Africa?

    Who made this allegation? Haven't heard it.

    And second, they should prepare tracks like Kanpur whether they it is #1 vs #2 or #7 vs #8. That was a good Test match on a good Test match wicket.

    Learn2PlaySpin. Kthxbye.

    No, T20 would have gained popularity without the BCCI & IPL. It was already huge in England since 2003 & the West Indian public with the Standford T20 in 2006 & 2007, where already in the groove.

    However those two nations hardly make up even 5-10% of the total cricketing public. BCCI itself hardly knew about T20 cricket till WT20C 07 was organised.

    And I also referred to the amount of money spent on training/ development/ domestic setup/pensions etc all this BCCI is unmatched.

    In past debates & research i heard the IPL franchise was being formulated by former BCCI head Jagmohan Dalmiya (spell check) & Modu before the T20 WC in 2007.

    In India probably. Not around to the other cricket nations.

    The BCCI had plans to organize a corporate ODI tournament way back. It took the WC win and the ICL to fast track it and make it a T20 league instead.

    Yeah, but that remained there as an idea. India was vehemently opposing T20 world cup when it was mooted, you know?

    well, spending in India itself is such a huge amount and is not comparable to what other nations are doing. And with the IPL and champions league they are actually contributing to the coffers of other nations as well.
