Rahul Dravid Inducted Into "Old Boys Club Hall of Fame"
Back in 2014 I had written the following: "The ICC Hall of Fame seems to be nothing more than an old boys (and a few gals too, for good measure) club that seems quite out of touch with the World Game today. How else does one explain the predominance of Australia, England and West Indies in the Hall, with only three Indians and no Sri Lankans?" And each year the new inductees don't seem to be any different. Nothing seems to have changed almost half a decade later

Afghanistan Prepare for Maiden Test By Mauling Banglas
Afghanistan, the newest Test nation prepares to take on the World No. 1 Test team in its own backyard in about a week. The venue will be the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Bengaluru. The recent history of the ground is that it has been evenly helpful to batsmen and bowlers, spinners and pacers... Afghanistan who have been playing in northern India as their "home" location are quite familiar with Indian conditions. The squad is as follows.
Kohli's Pain In The Neck Scuttles Surrey Plans
Virat Kohli is ruled out of his planned stint with Surrey and now there is some issue about whether and when he will be fit for the upcoming Indian tour of England. If he requires more than a few weeks to regain full fitness it would be a big blow to India's plans for the English Summer.

BCCI Announces Lifetime and Special Awards
The BCCI plans to recognize some living and late stalwarts of Indian cricket, both men and women, during the upcoming Historic First Test between India and Afghanistan to be played in Bengaluru on June 14th-18th, 2018. This is a very good move and should be applauded by all Indian cricket fans.
India's 2019 World Cup Match Itinerary Announced
It was 35 years ago that India lifted the World Cup for the first time at Lord's back in 1983. Can India repeat its feat next year? Here is the itinerary of their matches in next year's World Cup
Asian Cricket Council Sneaks In India Pakistan Games
Indian government has a principled stance not to play in Pakistan until that nation gives up supporting cross border terrorism aimed at India. However the BCCI is eager to play Pakistan, especially if that would mitigate the potential actions that ICC may take, now that Pakistan has gone to them to ask them to make BCCI pay them about $70 million which is what they say the damages are from India not playing Pakistan. The BCCI through the ACC has come up with a sneaky way to get India to play Pakistan. BCCI will now HOST games in UAE. Problem solved. Since they are HOSTING them they are not technically playing in Pakistan. Also, Pakistan will not play in India, fabricating security issues. So this addresses that too. Nice finesse job and typical BCCI!
Aussie Cheats Caught Red-Handed
Last year Steve Smith and the Australian management were caught cheating on DRS reviews but by a combination of bluster and obfuscation they escaped punishment. Now they have been caught again and this time the evidence is pretty damning.
Mayank Not Just Knocking On the Door, He's Kicking it Down
2221 Runs and counting... That is how many runs Mayank Agarwal has scored in all forms of cricket this domestic season so far, including over 1000 runs just in the month of November in the Ranji Trophy which included a triple century and a couple more. He also scored three centuries and 3 scores in the 80s and 90s in the domestic 50 over tournament, the Vijay Hazare Trophy, for his home team Karnataka... whom he helped lead to victory in the final. He is literally kicking the door down for entry to the senior side. One hopes he is given his due in a timely manner.
