If the matches are on weekdays then tickets should be made to school/college students to increase the no of audience ... Anyways BCCI does not earn anything from the empty seats.

I see its a while since anyone posted on this subject. Don't know about the cricket scene in India but here in England we have been infested with that awful twenty/20 game.
You've probably guessed I am not a short form game lover.

T20 as cricket is well not really cricket.

10 years earlier and i could have been thinking differently. Why? Because 10 years back i stopped playing pro cricket as there was no exposure beyond a particular level. For getting into the Indian Team, the requirements were you either had to be from the BIG teams or have a godfather with the right contacts. I had neither.

If T20 had happened then, probably i could be smiling at you guys from big hoardings in your cities.

T20 is not all that bad, ask the small time players. Its a boon and they will retire in peace. We.. well we just need to move on with a lot of pain in our hearts.

India Vs SriLanka - 131/0 Looking good, very good

The wicket looks likes a spinners delight.

Looks like the pitch is too good for batting.

Looks like Kanpur test is also going to go the Ahmedabad way. Another boring test match!

Next year we have a Pakistan V Australia Test at Headingley.
It will be interesting to watch as a neutral.

Spitfire, did you ever get the chance to play any cricket in England?
I have played club cricket with and against some good Indian players....and made some good friends too.

400 achieved.
pure batting pitch and match might be a dull draw again.

Unless the wicket breaks up after two or three days, it does seem to be headed that way. However, pressure of a high score can sometimes do strange things. Current score 403-2 in 85 overs.

India should declare with 800+ score on the board, the pitch would break on the third day & we would have bhajji/ojha in song in this test.
