Oh yeah? Next time PLEASE try finding the correct full name for ICC - which stands for International cricket council but NOT imperial stuff as you said. Seems that you are still in 1947 era with Gandhi (or as NY Times says "Ghandi") and the imperial british empire. Huh? :-)

Read the post carefully - in the second paragraph, I gave the *current* version of the name. When the ICC was originally formed, in 1909, its name stood for the 'Imperial Cricket Conference', reflecting the mindset of the people who ran the international game at that time.

While in India, I find it hard to avoid watching the game on TV but I no longer keep up with cricket news. So I enjoyed reading about this controversy and find much to agree with in your analysis.

very nice info

I liked the article very much.I lost the interest in watching cricket due to the controversy.
