    This is the same Indian side that wants a break and so can't tour Bangladesh is it...

    Funny how when $$$ are put on the table they forget the tiredness (this game, the tri-series in Holland, ...)

    They're all singing along to the same tune now.

    But Bang'sh was a whole tour, this is just a 1-off game and who else better than Ind/Pak for inaugural game in Abu dhabi

    Yes, but this is now a one-off game and a limited overs Tournament that they can play.

    Will the "tired" players stop at that or should we expect a few more money-grabbing series to be scheduled?

    I wish the govt pulls the string on this one and bans India-Pak matches again. The moment govt gives this BCCI a free hand, these morons are at again, they have started organizing useless matches are useless venues.

    Surprising how SRT isn't playing, Im sure it'd be a different case if it was sponsered by TVS Victor or MRF.

    It is embarrassing to see how the BCCI is so obcessed with Pakistan. Even when the govt okayed matches between Ind-Pak, BCCI was so happy that it hurriedly informed PCB about it and scheduled a series so quickly. I recently read that there will two series at the end of the season comprising of 6 onedayers and add to that the Asia Cup, Holland, CT,etc,. All in one season

    Yes and I am sure he wouldn't have played even if it was sponsored by MRF or TVS.

    Some People's obsession with SRT is amazing. . I think the guy is doing a good job of ****ing some people off.More Powers to him.

    This should be a match for young players to announce themselves. This may make a good team- totally second-string, except for Sehwag, Yuvraj, Irfan and Balaji. The rest can be a fresh bunch of non-regulars.
