  Blow to Indo-Pak series: MoU signed between BCCI, PCB under scanner?
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday 06:07 PM - No Replies

New Delhi: In what could be a major blow to the proposed bilateral series between India and Pakistan, the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two boards in 2014 has come under the scanner.

According to a CNN IBN report, there are dark clouds hovering over the much-awaited series since the question being asked is how could the BCCI sign a MoU considering the current state of affairs between the two countries?

The report also claimed that the erstwhile BCCI regime led by N Srinivasan, struck a deal with the PCB, where they offered them a MoU in exchange of their vote for ICC's restructuring.

The report further added that in case BCCI backs out from playing the series, the PCB can sue them for an amount ranging between 75 – 100 million dollars.

The final decision regarding the future of the series is pending with the Indian government after a green signal was given by Nawaz Sharif recently.

Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajeev Shukla had earlier confirmed that Sri Lanka had been decided as the neutral venue for the much-anticipated series between the neighbouring countries.

Notably, Najam Sethi was chairman of the board when the PCB and BCCI signed a MOU last year under which the two countries agreed to play six series against each other between 2015 and 2023 with Pakistan hosting the first series in December this year in UAE.

India has not played a full bilateral Test series with Pakistan after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.

  ICC admits Llong's DRS error

The moment that turned the Test? Nathan Lyon was given not out in Adelaide

The ICC has admitted that third umpire Nigel Llong made "an incorrect judgement" while using technology to decide on New Zealand's review of the appeal for catch against Nathan Lyon, which had been given not out on the field on the second day of the day-night Test in Adelaide.

"ICC has reviewed the decision and acknowledged that it was incorrect," it said on Twitter, adding that it had replied to New Zealand Cricket's questioning of the decision. "ICC confirms the umpire followed the correct protocol, but made an incorrect judgement."

The decision was hotly debated and criticised by television commentators and the media at the time, and drew unhappy but guarded reactions from New Zealand players Ross Taylor and Brendon McCullum, and the coach Mike Hesson because it had a significant impact on the Test.

Australia were 8 for 118 in reply to New Zealand's 202 on the second day when Lyon top-edged an attempted sweep off left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner into his shoulder and up to slip. New Zealand's appeal was denied on field by umpire S Ravi, and McCullum asked for a review.

After five minutes of replays, Llong upheld Ravi's decision though there was a clear Hot Spot on the top edge of Lyon's bat, and the batsman had walked halfway to the dressing room. There also seemed to be a deviation in the ball's course, but nothing showed up on Snicko, which also failed to read the impact of the ball on Lyon's shoulder.

Lyon had not scored at the time of his reprieve, and he eventually went on to make 34. Australia's last two wickets added 108 runs in all, and earned a first-innings lead of 22. New Zealand were dismissed for 208 in their second innings, and Australia chased down the target of 187 with only three wickets in hand.

  Delhi govt wants to felicitate 1983, 2011 WC winners during 4th Test
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday 12:50 PM - No Replies

New Delhi: For the final Test between India and South Africa, the Aam Aadmi Party's Delhi government is contemplating to honour Indian cricket team's World Cup winners of 1983 and 2011.

According to a Times of India report, the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP have come up with the unique proposal.

“The Delhi administration wants to felicitate the World Cup-winning teams. But I do not know what will be the modalities,“ Justice Mukul Mudgal, who is overseeing DDCA 's preparations for the Test, said on Monday.

Meanwhile, the only apprehension DDCA has is how the event would be organised with not much time remaining.

“It's their baby . We don't have any problem with it but they will have to do everything, starting from inviting all the cricketers. They will have to buy tickets and then send the einvitation maybe,“ a top DDCA official told TOI on Monday.

The report also added that batting legend Sachin Tendulkar is likely to watch the fourth Test since DDCA has received a request to reserve tickets on his behalf.

Local batsman Virender Sehwag is also likely to be felicitated during the final Test.

Virat Kohli-led India have an unassailable 2-0 lead going into the final Test against Hashim Amla-led South Africa.

  Mitchell Santner retains spot in New Zealand squad for Sri Lanka series
Posted by: nairrk - Yesterday 12:48 PM - No Replies

Wellington: Spin-bowling all-rounder Mitchell Santner has been retained in New Zealand`s 12-man squad for the two-match test series against Sri Lanka after an impressive debut in the third and final test against Australia.

The Hamilton-born 23-year-old, who bats left-handed and bowls left-arm spin, replaced seamer Matt Henry for the inaugural day-night test at Adelaide Oval, taking two wickets and scoring 76 runs in tough conditions for batsmen.

"The level of composure Mitchell showed on debut was very impressive and he certainly displayed how exciting a player he is with both the bat and ball," New Zealand coach Mike Hesson said in a statement on Tuesday.

"His ability to bat in the top six and bowl good overs gives us options and assists the team balance. We`re looking forward to watching Mitchell`s continued development."

New Zealand, beaten 2-0 in a hard-fought three-match series against Australia, host Sri Lanka in the first test in Dunedin from Dec. 10, with the second in Hamilton on Dec. 18.

All 12 of the squad toured Australia.

Selectors have backed opening batsman Martin Guptill to dig himself out of his form slump and also retained spinner Mark Craig, who endured a tough tour.

"Mark and Martin didn`t perform to the level they would have liked over in Australia, but both have shown in the past what they`re capable of and we`re confident they`ll make valuable contributions in the upcoming series," Hesson said.

All-rounders Corey Anderson and Jimmy Neesham were not available for selection due to fitness issues, while Henry, Luke Ronchi and Hamish Rutherford were released from the squad to return to their domestic sides.
