Empty Stadiums Make No Noise !

Congratulations Mumbai for winning the Ranji Trophy for a record 38th time - but what's with the empty stands for the premier domestic game in the country ? While the sad state of support for domestic teams is well-known that effect was exacerbated this year due to the decision by the BCCI to hold the knockout games at neutral venues - the argument being somewhat moronically that people don't come to see these games anyway. None less than Sachin Tendulkar has come out strongly against this policy.

What is your opinion ? Should knockout games in the Ranji Trophy be held at neutral venues ? Moreover should there be knockout games at all ? Why can't we just have a league system like the premier leagues in football where the team with the most points wins ? Get your thoughts flowing in ...

I think KO games should be held at home venues for teams that have performed the best - something similar to the NBA. That gives the teams the added incentive to perform better.

Knock out matches need not be held at neutral venues.

Hey sorry to be off topic but this is the only way I could contact you. I found your blog to be interesting, and thought you might be interested in an affiliate program with us? We are a cricket game at howzat.com, and we're shortlisting bloggers to help us spread the word about the game.

Could I invite you for an online gaming session, and tell us how you feel about the game? It will take about 15 minutes.

Please e-mail me at aman.gamev@gmail.com if you're interested. Sincere thanks.
