    If we are forced to play a home series in India, I think we deserve points for winning as if it's an away series and India deserves to lose points on a similar basis.

    It just seems to me as if they're making up excuses to not play Pakistan away from home. Definitely a fair enough call on not touring Pakistan itself, I wouldn't tour there either, but if they refuse to play in the UAE because they have a convenient policy they probably dreamed up precisely to get themselves out of that situation then that should count as a forfeit as far as the Test rankings are concerned IMO.
    Knowing BCCI, it will probably have something to do with Money matters tbh and Cardiff is different as it comes under the jurisdiction of ECB anyway and not a different board like with Emirates cricket board and also a different government with different visas etc...

    Agree though, that they should play on some neutral venue. If not the UAE then somewhere else, though it'd be nice to have a series in UAE as both India and Pakistan should get decent crowds and support bases there. However, BCCI maybe reluctant due to past history though.

    This series if it does happen, happen during August - one of the hottest months in UAE.

    I guess India could hold the matches while Pakistan would be considered as hosts. Or South Africa or Australia. India would be ideal.

    @Agent: There is no difference in points for winning/losing for home and away matches.

    I thought there was. We didn't get as many points as we would have if we had whitewashed England in England.

    Home and Away doesn't come to calculations for it. Though I'm basing this from wiki.

    Him or Jadeja tbh.

    BCCI seems to be backing Dhoni as captain full hog under Srinivasan, it seems.

    Will be interesting what call the selectors take for AUS series and if it is vetoed again.

    no wonder....was one of the worst MOM calls ever made.

    What if it actually gets dhoni's morale even lower given that he knew that he didn't perform
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    He did perform actually, not as well as some of the others but still. To be perfectly honest, Dhoni is the last person to care about these awards.

    This should have happened before this series itself, but before any further cricket with Pakistan, two questions need to be answered: Was the decision to snap cricket ties after 26/11 wrong? If not, what has changed since then to justify going back on the decision?

    what I don't quite understand is why have not all sports ties been severed and why only cricket?

    Helps justify keeping him captain, i guess. Or that's the thinking atleast.

    Remember it was just revealed, that Board President had vetoed Dhoni's removal.

    And this implies that he might be kept captain for Australia too or that the new selectors don't want him either and Board wants to keep him.
