Why is BCCI getting tough with Lankan board?


BCCI gets tough with Lankan board – News – News – Cricket on Times of India

BCCI has reportedly decided to put on hold all future bilateral series with Sri Lanka because of “hostile” statements made by Sri Lanka

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.

Sub-continental cricket success

The Indian cricketing establishment was lone succes in sub-continental relations. India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka jointly took on the might of UK, Australia to move cricket headquarters from UK to Asia.

From the 1987 World Cup to the 2007, Australian tour, the entire sub-continent approached issues in a concerted manner. This gave them significant leverage.

With a new ‘political’ dispensation at BCCI, are things changing? Is India trying to bully its friends and neighbours?

Possibly. ‘Jaggu Dada’s’ touch is required!
