Duleep Trophy Squads and Schedule Announced

India Boss Lanka

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. However they would be better served if they recognize that they must meet the legitimate and reasonable interests of their biggest benefactor the Indian cricket fan, and indirectly the BCCI.
