Does the activity in IPL count by ICC?


The basic equation is as follows:

`Net run rate = (number of runs scored/number of overs faced) - (number of runs conceded/number of overs bowled)`

A positive net run rate means a team is scoring faster than its opposition overall, while a negative net run rate means a team is scoring slower than the teams it has come up against. A positive NRR is therefore desirable.

NRR is usually employed to rank teams that have finished a series or tournament on the same number of points.

Examples: In the 2012 Indian Premier League (IPL), Pune Warriors scored 2321 runs off 319.2 overs and conceded 2424 runs off 310 overs. Pune Warriors' NRR is therefore:

(2321/319.333) - (2424/310) = 7.268 - 7.819 = -0.551

If a team is bowled out before completing their full quota of 20 or 50 overs (depending on whether it is a Twenty20 or one day match), that full quota is used in the net run rate calculation. For example, if the team batting first is bowled out for 140 after 35...

Each player has to sign a contract with BCCI.

The IPL has two type of contracts – under first, called the firm agreement, the player will get a fixed sum from BCCI and the difference between the bid amount and the fixed fee will be earned by BCCI,

On the other hand the second, called the basic agreement, gives a player freedom to take home the amount he has been bid for. The average amount of money each player will take home is whopping Rs 80 lakhs.

IPL also makes it mandatory for a franchise to spend at least $3.3 million annually for player fees and give $100 as per day per player daily allowance.

International players will be immediately released to attend their international matches if they clash with IPL whereas for domestic boards, which rely heavily on the players, will have to give way to IPL as players need to decide where they want to play, and a player who gets Rs 80 lakhs for 45 days will not leave IPL anyhow.

Hence, it will be a loss...

Pakistan should not tour India, says Ehsan Mani © Getty Images

By Saj Sadiq

Ehsan Mani spent his early life in Pakistan playing for the Rawalpindi Club and Government College Lahore XI from 1959 to 1965 as a right-hand batsman and a left-arm fast medium bowler.

From 1989 to 1996, Mani represented the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) at the International Cricket Council. For the 1996 Cricket World Cup, he was on the advisory committee as the PCB representative. He was also on the same committee during the 1999 Cricket World Cup played in England. In 1996, he was elected by the ICC member nations to the position of Chairman of the ICC Finance and Marketing Committee.

He held on to this post until it was dissolved in June 2002. After that he took over as the Vice-President of the ICC Executive Board. He has also served on a number of ICC Committees, such as the Chairman’s Advisory Committee, set up to advice Lord Colin Cowdrey and Sir Clyde Walcott...

On 3 January 2017, Trial Chamber VI of the International Criminal Court ("ICC" or "Court"), in the case of The Prosecutor v. Bosco Ntaganda, found that it has jurisdiction over counts 6 and 9 (alleged war crimes of rape and sexual slavery of child soldiers) and rejected the Defence's challenge thereto. This decision relates only to the Chamber's authority to adjudicate the alleged conduct. The decision is without prejudice to the guilt or innocence of the accused which will be determined only at the end of the trial.

The Defence argued that Counts 6 and 9 do not fall within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Court considering that, according to Article 3 common to the Geneva Conventions of 1949, war crimes may not be committed by members of an armed force against members of the same armed force. Trial Chamber VI had initially ruled that the Defence's challenge did not constitute a jurisdictional matter and that it would address this question in the judgment. However,...

It is really interesting to discuss two topics that are interrelated to each other on such vast basis yet are totally incompatible on some other note. Glad to see such great responses coming from ISC members.

Beginning with India's 2011 World Cup victory, the Indian team truly proved that they have the potential to win every battle with ceaseless efforts and hard work. It is needless to say that the World Cup is not gully cricket and the Cup only goes to the most deserving team. Behind India bringing home the 2011 World Cup, there is a long wait of 28 years and the strenuous efforts of one and a half years. The credit to India's world cup victory cannot be that easily attributed to IPL, which is a mere cricket-trade.

The World Cup
The World Cup is international cricket. It is a nation's representation at the world's cricket scenario. Moreover, it is a battle between countries. A battle to prove that one's cricket-talents are better than the other's. Patriotism is one...

You're probably here because you've taken a glance at the International Cricket Council's official ranking tables for its Test Championship, ODI (one day international) Championship and T20I (Twenty20 International) Championship... and wondered how on Earth they came up with those numbers. Hopefully, by the end of this article, you'll have more of a handle on the ICC's methods.

Overview of the ICC Ranking System

The best way to approach ICC rankings is to look at them as indicator of what ought to happen if one team played another tomorrow. Teams are ranked according to their rating, which is in the fourth column.

As an example, let's imagine South Africa is about to play New Zealand. Here were their rankings at the time of writing:

Team / Matches / Points / Rating
South Africa / 25 / 3002 / 120
New Zealand / 21 / 1670 / 80

As you can see, the table is split into...

News X : In another big blow that has engulfed the cricket fraternity, Pakistan umpire Asad RAuf has been withdrawn by the ICC. The decision taken by the ICC in the light of media reports suggesting that Mumbai police are probing his alleged nexus into the fixing saga.

According to reports Asad received gifts from a bookie in Jaipur. The ICC did not mention what the Mumbai Police were reportedly investigating Rauf for, and said it had no further comment to make.

In the wake of reports that the Mumbai Police are conducting an investigation into Asad Rauf's activities, we feel that it is in Asad's best interests as well as those of the sport and the event itself, that he is withdrawn from participating in the ICC Champions Trophy," Dave Richardson, the ICC chief executive,...

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is the international governing body of cricket.

IPL is one of the domestic cricket competitions held in India. It's not an international T20 cricket series. The performances(runs scored, wickets taken etc) will not be counted for any ICC awards or for any ICC rankings. But those IPL stats will be added to the Twenty 20 career of the cricket players but not to the Twenty 20 internationals.

Not only IPL, all the domestic as well as international T20 activities will be added to the Twenty 20 career of respective players. For example, if you see the runs scored by Chris Gayle in Twenty 20 matches, it will include the runs that he scored for West Indies and for other domestic teams like Jamaica Tallawahs, Kolkata Knight Riders, Royal Challengers Bangalore etc.

Law 2 in the ICC Law Book states that,

Batsman retiring

A batsman may retire at any time during his innings when the ball is dead. The umpires, before allowing play to proceed shall be informed of the reason for a batsman retiring.

(a) If a batsman retires because of illness, injury or any other unavoidable cause, he is entitled to resume his innings subject to (c) below. If for any reason he does not do so, his innings is to be recorded as ‘Retired - not out’.

(b) If a batsman retires for any reason other than as in (a) above, he may resume his innings only with the consent of the opposing captain. If for any reason he does not resume his innings it is to be recorded as ‘Retired - out’.

(c) If after retiring a batsman resumes his innings, it shall be only at the fall of a wicket or the retirement of another batsman.

Retired Hurt:
If a batsman falls ill or gets injured while batting, he may retire with the umpires permission. At...

Less will be more under the structures currently being proposed for the future of international cricket, which would for the first time place limits on how many matches and series could be scheduled by any one nation.

Speaking at the Cricket Australia AGM, which underlined the game's financial reliance on bilateral tours, the chief executive James Sutherland outlined plans currently under discussion for league structures in ODIs and Twenty20 matches, plus a mooted "conference" format for Test matches.

These structures, Sutherland said, would mean that the game's financial powerhouses like Australia, India and England would play less international cricket than they presently do, while raising the volume of cricket played by other nations. This would be possible due to the increased context and meaning given to each match by league formats that gave players, fans, broadcasters and sponsors a clear idea why each match was being played.

When Sam Collins and Jarrod Kimber set out to make Death of a Gentleman, their aims were vague. They wanted to make something that asked why Test cricket, the form of the game they prefer, was in decline. They ended up with something far more explosive, a shocking account of the process by which world cricket was carved up to ensure the domination of three nations: India and, to a lesser degree, England and Australia. They outline a nexus of self-interest at whose heart stands N Srinivasan, chairman of the ICC, former president of the BCCI, and the managing director of India Cements, which owns the Chennai Super Kings franchise.

The basics of the story, of course, are familiar to anybody with the slightest interest in cricket politics: the financial might of the IPL and India's exploitation of that, the craven submission of England and Australia as they gratefully gobble the crumbs from India's table, the weakness of the other boards unwilling or unable to fight for a...

Finally justice! The arrogant, self-serving Indian cricket officials have been delivered a body-blow by the Justice RM Lodha committee's verdict which has suspended the most powerful IPL team, the Chennai Super Kings for two years along with the Rajasthan Royals from playing the tournament.

It is a judgment that the BCCI officials may not have seen coming, given how thick-skinned they are when it comes to looking within. So far they have been a law unto themselves, neither caring for public interest nor the game of cricket.

The custodians of the game are busier in furthering their own personal interests, than caring for the image of the sport and its well-being. What should have been a simple disciplinary matter for the IPL governing council in deciding punishments for the two teams and its owners, became a matter of prestige for N Srinivasan and his coterie in saving his face and his team from action.

It took the Supreme Court to finally intervene and...

In a country like India, there is a large fan following for cricket. In fact cricket is considered to be a religion, there are very small rooms for any other sports. In the case of football, it is second most popular game in the country with a very little or we can say a shoe-string fan following. As expected , football has been a bench-warmer, just like any other sports in India. Here is the brief report on both the sports – Cricket vs Football.

Cricket vs Football – History of both sports

Cricket has been dominating Indian sports since few decades, but story was different in 60’s and 70’s. At that time, India’s national game, Hockey (still national game, with a diminished status) was the most popular game among members of the public. Football and Tennis were also popular at that time. In 1951 and 1962 Asian Games, India won gold in Football. During 60’s the Football team also qualified for regularly for summer Olympics. The team also was invited to play the FIFA...
