Indian Women Awarded $75,000 each for World Cup Performance
The BCCI announced a cash award of INR 50 Lakhs per player and INR 25 Lakhs per support staff for the excellent performance of the Women's Team in the recently concluded ICC Women's World Cup, where they lost a closely fought final against eventual winners England at Lord's. The prize money is definitely welcome, but what woulld have been even more welcome is if the BCCI began the groundwork to establish a Women's IPL tournament. Maybe the upcoming ICC Women's T20 World Cup will be a chance for the Indian women to showcase their skills in the shortest format of the game and make their case for a professional league even stronger. Afterall if a country like Australia with a population of 25 million or so can have a Women's T20 league why not India with over fifty times the population?

United India Crush Pakistan in Birmingham
Prior to India's defense of the ICC Champions Trophy, a news story peddled by Cricinfo about the supposed serious rift in the Indian camp between captain Virat Kohli and coach Anil Kumble broke. When others questioned the veracity of the story Cricinfo took the unusual stand of doubling down on its claim of such a rift by citing "unnamed" sources who apparently had direct knowledge of the alleged rift... while not presenting either Kohli's or Kumble's take on the issue. On the eve of the match the issue once again raised its head at a pre-match conference and Kohli flatly denied such a rift and rubbished the report.
India Retain No. 1 Test Ranking
India continue their domination at the top of the ICC Test rankings. They grabbed the No. 1 spot late last year, after Pakistan briefly held it for a few weeks. India with their record breaking home season look set to hold on to No. 1 for a long time. Pakistan meanwhile after being white washed in Australia and New Zealand and despite eking out a historic first series win in West Indies against a historically weak West Indies side have plummeted to No. 6.
What the ICC owes BCCI
The malcontents of the ICC have once again used their unofficial mouthpiece Cricinfo to begin a campaign of pressure to try and bring the BCCI to heel.

Captain Kohli Reviews Record Breaking Home Season
Virat Kohli, the current Indian Test Captain, reflects on a record-breaking home season. The only other time India played as many as 13 Tests at home in a season was back in 1979-80 when it played two back to back 6-Test series against the visiting Australian and Pakistani sides and a one-off Test against England. Back then the captain for the Tests was the man handing the ICC Test Champion's mace to Kohli, the legendary Sunil Gavaskar. India won 4, lost one and drew 8 Tests back then. This time only two out of 13 Tests were drawn and India won 10 and lost one. How things have changed, and for the better, both for Indian cricket and Test cricket in general since then.
