New FTP has given meaningful context to T20s: BCCI CEO Rahul Johri 15.12.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) CEO Rahul Johri is confident that the proposed Future Tours Programme (FTP) will give "meaningful context" to bilateral T20 Internationals -- a marked departure from the usual one-off matches. Johri presented a proposed FTP that has 81 international matches at home in the next five-year cycle, including 27 T20s. India will play 53 T20 Internationals in this phase which includes 26 away matches as well. "We discussed with everybody and the feedback that we got was that one-off T20 means nothing. If there is a contest, there has to be context. And that is why, having meaningful T20 International contests is an approach that we have taken," said Johri.   His team has worked for months on the freshly-chalked FTP, which requires an ICC approval. With India's lucrative home TV broadcast rights deal set to come up in March 2018, the CEO is confident of a windfall like the IPL where Star India bought the rights for 16,347 crore. "We have put together a balanced FTP ...

From Delhi to Ashes: Tale of two ‘fixers’ 15.12.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The ongoing Ashes cricket series in Australia was rocked by claims of spot-fixing by a leading UK based tabloid. The sting operation conducted by paper revealed that two Indian bookies, Sobers Joban and Priyank Saxena, are from Delhi and could spot-fix during the third Test at Perth if a deal of Rs 1.2 crore is struck in this regard. British newspaper The Sun alleged two bookmakers, including an Indian “Mr Big”, had offered to sell it details of rigged periods of play in the Test in Perth which could be bet on to win huge sums. One of them claimed to have worked on the scam with former and current internationals including a World Cup- winning all-rounder. They said they liaised with a fixer in Australian cricket known as “The Silent Man”. No Australia or England players were named as being involved. The Indian pair — secretly filmed at hotels in Dubai and Delhi during the paper’s four-month investigation — claimed corrupt players would signal the fix was on by making a subtle gesture on the field, such ...

Day-night Test cricket is inevitable: Sourav Ganguly 14.12.2017 DNA: India
Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Thursday said day-night Test cricket is inevitable as the longer version of the game is fighting for survival because of poor turnouts. Ganguly's comment came after some reports stated that concerned with poor ticket sales especially during the India-Sri Lanka series opener last month at Eden Gardens, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) president has pushed for day-night Test matches at home.   "It is inevitable, it has to happen someday. It is very simple, a pink ball will be used instead of the red cherry and people will come and watch in the evening," Ganguly said on the sidelines of a promotional event in Kolkata. He also lavished praise on Rohit Sharma for scoring his third ODI double century, but felt "sorry" for the Sri Lankans. "I feel sorry for the Sri Lankans. Earlier it was (Virender) Sehwag, (Sachin) Tendulkar and now it's (Virat) Kohli and Rohit Sharma," Ganguly said.   "It was a remarkable innings. He took just 36 balls to convert his century into ...

Pakistan to play more matches against stronger teams in proposed ICC FTP 14.12.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Pakistan are all set to play more than 120 matches, including 80 percent against strong teams under the new Future Tours Programme (FTP) which is being proposed by the International Cricket Council (ICC). Initially, Pakistan were scheduled to play around 104 matches across three formats, however, the figures were later increased to more than 120 following the ICC executive committee meeting held in Singapore earlier this month. While confirming the news, a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official said that the country would play more matches with the strong teams and lesser matches against lowly outfits. "Presently, we are in a good position as the PCB did not prefer to play matches against lowly teams like Afghanistan, Ireland, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. Propaganda is being spread that Pakistan will play less matches while teams like Bangladesh, Ireland, Zimbabwe and Afghanistan will play more matches," the Dawn quoted the PCB official, as saying. The official further reveals that these four small teams will ...

The working group of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on ICC Future Tours Programme (FTP) will have former India captain Sourav Ganguly in all likelihood, while CEO Rahul Johri will only be included if the Committee of Administrators (COA) puts pressure on the office-bearers.
