The Hindu had a wonderful cartoon yesterday on dynastic politics.
Nitin argues that the government's decision to go ahead with the tour to Pakistan shows that the NDA government is quite willing to risk the lives of national icons as a concession on the negotiating table. Well said. A tour to Pakistan is never an indicator of improving situations. By going to Pakistan, the cricketers are going to be overworked bigtime.
Shortly after they return in April/May, there is a tour to Bangladesh and that'd obviously include a few one-day internationals. I think the BCCI has also committed itself to the Asia Cup. After the Asia Cup, the cricketers would get a month or so off before they leave to Europe to first participate in a tri-nation (a real kind, not the farce we saw in Australia!) series against Australia and Pakistan. They then troop off to England (or wherever the trophy is moved, if the ICC votes against England) for the Champions Trophy in Aug/Sep. Then they stick around there to play a 3 ODI series against England. On returning, they're then faced with the toughest home season in a long while as Australia first, and then South Africa, visit India. So in the span of 9 months, the cricketers would have had a break for around a month or so, collected a few million valuable airline miles and become totally drained by the year end. Well done, BCCI. You truly do care for the players.
