tri series: a suggestion...

by straight point

so disturbing is the dew factor that bangladesh captain shakib pronounced the prevailing conditions as "almost unplayable and unfit to play"...

dhoni and sangakkara also raised the issue in their own way but they all seemed reconciled to the fact that nothing can be done as the schedule is final and they will have to play in the conditions offered...

lest it becomes the 'tournament of toss' which is a strong possibility... i have a suggestion that can be implemented without changing the schedule... the conditions etc...

since each team will play the other twice... why not make each team bat first and bat second once...?

so next time bangladesh bats second and so will india when they play sri lanka again... this will make it an even contest... even conditions... all teams could end up with 1 win 1 loss... so the net run rate will become far more important... making teams put put in that extra effort... making the series more meaningful... than it is now...

Like the idea; also we'll get to hear Sanga crib some more - he'll ask for the tournament to abandoned.

Off Topic:
Here's something I posted in cricinfo:
"You know what? Despite this being the best portal for Cricket news and scores, I am going to ignore this portal from now on. Hopefully soon, you'll suffer enough stop spinning every event in cricket in an anti-India fashion, and will start questioning the injustices perpetrated by the Broads of the world. Right now, cricinfo is a portal run by the English for the English, and shamelessly pursuing an anti-India agenda - and not necessarily pro-cricket, at that."
Not sure if it will be published but I thought it is high time we started giving it back to this bunch of English gentlemen stooping to push their agenda all the time. And I think it is high time we ignored the newsworthiness of the site and stopped visiting it just so that they'll stop pushing their nefarious agenda. What say, folks?

nice suggestion SP but what about the Finals?

If the tournament is going to be decided on a toss why not all matches be decided by it and it would make for an interesting watch when Bangladesh chase against India and SL so that we have closer matches!

Or even better
India and Sri Lanka should voluntarily bat first against Bangladesh..the question is are they brave enough to do that?

I want to see Dhoni win the toss and BAT first against Bangladesh!

and we all know about Sanga may be when they bat first he will ask the referee to abandon the match! :P

let his fielder or batsman slip on ground and then he will wave from pavilion as frantically as he waved in delhi and call for abandonment of whole tournament...

raj... let me guess i think you would have commented on against sunny's article on page2...?

straight point said...

good question aditya...

i think if both captain agree before finals to play it as days game i don't think there should be any problem in that...

interesting one , SP , good (straight) points ....as for me , my post wud be called slightly different:
"A suggestion : no tri series"

:-) ha ha ha but seriously this series is death by boredom , yaar...i mean Ind-SL-Ban one week after two months of Ind-SL ?? Has BCCI bought the SL board or all 365days per year of their lives ! There's Aus-Pak and SAF-Eng thats so much more interesting and for me at least that makes this boring series even more boring , if thats possible , that is....what do you think ?

straight point said...

hahaha bk...

yes it is fast going to the level that fans will puke listening there is another match with lankans today...

to make it more interesting we could still have tri series with bangladesh with india a and b playing as two teams... at least players like che... mishra would have got chance to play... and there would be something to look into...

what say...? :)
