BCCI gets tough with Lankan board

BCCI has reportedly decided to put on hold all future bilateral series with Sri Lanka because of "hostile" statements made by Sri Lanka Cricket chairman Arjuna Ranatunga.
BCCI officials refused to confirm the development while Sri Lankan sources said that talks between the boards had run into rough weather. The dispute had started over a proposed Test tour by Sri Lanka to England in April-May next year, when the IPL tournament takes place. Since top Lankan players have contracts to play in IPL, BCCI had proposed a financial package to help SLC tide over its losses if the tour was cancelled.
The Indian officials were reportedly unhappy over a "damaging" comment from Ranatunga in Dubai stating that BCCI was trying to buy Sri Lankan cricket with the bailout package proposal. BCCI sources said since the aid package hadn't been finalized or made public, Ranatunga had no business talking about it. BCCI official Niranjan Shah, however, rubbished reports of a BCCI boycott, saying, "There is no truth in such reports and we are not putting on hold future bilateral tours with Sri Lanka."
The meeting between representatives of the two boards, which took place in Bangkok, was reportedly attended by Modi and other Indian board officials, and SLC's interim committee member Siddath Wettimuny and two other SLC officials. The agreement was to be based on three conditions: Top Lankan players would be released for the IPL season, BCCI would compensate SLC and the two top club teams from Sri Lanka will be invited to next year's Champions League. The Lankan board wanted India to tour Sri Lanka again in 2009 and 2010 for some One-day matches.
The confidential documents reportedly state that, apart from putting the tours on hold, the Indian board had also decided to withdraw the $40 million bailout package offer to Sri Lankan cricket.
Modi reportedly said at the meeting that the bailout package was made with a genuine effort to assist Sri Lankan cricket who had a mutual understanding with them.

Talks with rebel Indian league break down

The Indian cricket board's discussions with the unofficial Indian Cricket League have broken down, thwarting the privately promoted league's hopes of securing recognition.
Officials from the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the ICL met "to see if there was any common ground," Indian cricket board secretary N. Srinivasan said in a statement Thursday night. "The talks failed and there are no plans for any further meeting."
The meeting on Thursday was the first time the non-sanctioned ICL held discussions with the Indian cricket board, which has imposed life bans on all Indian players participating in the Twenty20 competition. The BCCI's firm opposition to the ICL had also forced several other national cricket boards to take punitive action against their players who featured in the ICL, which started last year.
The ICL has approached the International Cricket Council, asking for the event to be recognized by the game's governing body. The ICL event was on the agenda of the ICC board meeting in Dubai earlier this month, where the Indian board said it would meet ICL officials and report back.

BCCI changes Ranji schedule for Champions T20 League

The Ranji Trophy schedule for the 2008-09 season has been altered to prevent a clash of dates with the Champions Twenty20 League, which is scheduled from December 3 to 10.
As per the revised fixtures, the third and fourth round matches of the Elite division have been advanced by a day from November 17 and 24 to November 16 and 23 respectively. The dates of the subsequent rounds have also been changed.
In the Plate division, the first two rounds dates will remain unaltered but from third round onwards their schedule will be changed.
The final match's date remains the same but the semifinals would be played on new dates, according to a statement issued by BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan.
