    WTF has the BCCI been doing ?

    See the first table on this link.....http://www.cricinfo.com/link_to_data...13AUG2004.html


    Since 97 , India has played just 29 tests at home and 42 abroad.

    Was the BCCI sleeping ?

    Its not even near 50-50.

    Yes indeed they are sleeping . Look they can give 4 or 5 test series to Windies but not to any south Asian team .

    Strange indeed...
    Can't think of any particular reason.
    Well, except maybe that two overseas tours to one home tour has been the norm of recent years.

    Hopefully the schedule for the upcoming South Africa series is an indication that they intend to reverse the trend a little.
    2 Test-matches, no ODIs.
    With Australia's Tests, of course, they've already played the ODIs, the TVS Cup that time last year.

    Actually, having said that, the record since 1997 in ODIs is 66 home, 84 away and 114 neutral...

    I think that was more due to the ICC and SA though...
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    If The BCCI want something, there's nothing any other Board, and certainly not ICC, can do about it!
    No matter who likes it or not, India can play what cricket their Board wants.

    When was that, then?
    And how come we've seen several examples, most notably the farce of 2001\02 and the Sehwag\unofficial-Test where they held both the UCBSA and ICC to how they wanted it.

    Yes, I kind of guessed when the series you meant was, what I was saying was when did they plan some ODIs in the South Africa tour?
