Their excuse for the delay of ODI Schedule is that they were waiting for OK from ICC regarding the T20 game in Ghauwati which is at the end of the Series, nothing to do with the ODI Schedule.
They changed the Kolkata ODI from being the fifth and last ODI to now being the second game.
You would have thought some common sense would have continued with Kolkata as the last ODI with two nearby venues Ranchi & Ghauwati scheduled for T20 games. If the Ghauwati venue was deemed not suitable then Vizag could have been a suitable alternative being close to Kolkata, no excuse for this unacceptable delayed scheduling debacle.
USELESS MORONS they even find it difficult to reply to emails.

Yes hope there is a BCCI clean out as it would be in the best interests of Indian Cricket.

Rant over, thanks.

First three games:
Bats: Kohli, Rohit, Dhawan, Rahul, Pandey, Rahane, Dhoni,
All Rounder: Pandya, Jadhav, Axar,
Spin: Kuldeep, Chahal,
Pace: Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar, Umesh, Shami

They want to try Jadhav, Kuldeep, Chahal. Even Axar (He did fairly well with India-A). With Ashwin, Jadeja in, that would not have been possible.
The rest need to prove themselves some more.

India A against New Zealand A: India 'A' squad: Priyank Panchal, R Samarth, Sudip Chatterjee, Shreyas Iyer, Ankit Bawne, Karun Nair (Captain), Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wk), Shahbaz Nadeem, K Gowtham, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Siraj, Ankit Rajpoot

Again nice-selection. Can't find fault with it. The selectors are doing their job nicely. Jayant has not yet recovered?

Pakistan hopes World XI series will herald return of international cricket



Quote:
Pakistan will host a World XI cricket team for three T20 matches starting on Tuesday and hopes the series will herald the return of international cricket to the country eight years after a militant attack on a Sri Lankan team bus.

The star-studded series to take place under tight security will be closely monitored by other cricket boards and if all goes well Pakistan expects to host Sri Lanka and West Indies this year, Pakistan cricket board chairman Najam Sethi said.

Pakistan has only hosted one international series since militants attacked the bus in Lahore in 2009, wounding six players and killing two civilians and six security officials.

n March, calls for the return of international cricket picked up steam after the final of the domestic T20 Pakistan Super League, featuring high profile foreign players such as World Cup winner Darren Sammy, was held in Lahore.

"It's a great opportunity to showcase Pakistan," Sethi told Reuters, adding that these matches could revive cricket in the country. "This is a momentous occasion."

Over 6,000 police officials and paramilitary officers have been deployed around the stadium, according to provincial government spokesman Malik Muhammad Ahmad Khan.

"A foolproof security plan has been devised for the protection of the teams and spectators," he said.

Attacks in Lahore have become less frequent in recent years but security remains high as Pakistani Taliban and other militants groups remain active. A Taliban suicide bomber killed 25 people in July in an attack that appeared to target Lahore's police force.

Best wishes to Pakistani cricket, however, it will take longer for India-Pakistan cricket and Pakistani cricketers taking part in IPL. Fixing. Fixing.
Let us see what kind of contracts come up in the next IPL.

I guess I was unlucky. I had been to the last day of the first test (supposed to be the 3rd day) between India and Australia. While we were waiting in the queue to get Mitchell Marsh was dismissed.

Got to see Smith's ton and Umesh taking a couple of wickets. A couple of Starc's sixes was directed towards where we sat.

We left as soon as Virat was dismissed and reached a bar near my friend's place to have a few beers. After a couple of hours a couple of Australians came to the same place all pumped up. We knew that India has lost and when they passed us we congratulated them.

We were not allowed to enter with camera or smokes. Good that had my cell phone which was used to take the above snaps.
