India's batting wilted under pressure and bundled out India for 177Bangladesh cricket team clinched its maiden ICC Under-19 World Cup title after beating favorites India cricket by three wickets in the summit clash at JB Marks Oval, Potchefstroom on Sunday. Set a revised target of 170 after a brief rain interruption, Bangladesh won the match with 23 balls to spare. Sent in to bat, India's batting wilted under pressure as a superb Bangladesh bowling attack shot the defending champions out for a paltry 177 in 47.2 overs.Yasashvi Jaiswal (88 off 121 balls) was once again a standout performer but not for once did he look like dominating the Bangladesh bowling unit whose new ball bowlers Shoriful Islam (2/31 in 10 overs) and Tanzim Hasan Shakib (2/28 in 8.2 overs) literally stifled the Indians for runs.The third seamer Avishek Das (3/40 in 9 overs) was the most successful bowler in terms of figures but it was Shoriful's first spell with channelised aggression that put the Indians on the back-foot from the onset.After a short rain break towards the end, the target was revised to 170 from 46 runs but Bangladesh reached 170 for 7 in 42.1 overs to win the match.Opener Parvez Hossain Emon top-scored for Bangladesh with a 79-ball 47 while captain and wicketkeeper Akbar Ali was not out on 43 from 77 deliveries.For the India U-19 side, Ravi Bishnoi was the most successful bowler with figures of 4/30 while Sushant Mishra had 2/25.India thus missed out on a record fifth title in their seventh final appearance. Here are the playing 11 of both the teams:India U-19 playing 11: Yashasvi Jaiswal, Divyaansh Saxena, Tilak Varma, Dhruv Jurel (wk), Priyam Garg (capt), Siddhesh Veer, Atharva Ankolekar, Ravi Bishnoi, Sushant Mishra, Kartik Tyagi, Akash SinghBangladesh U-19 playing 11: Parvez Hossain Emon, Tanzid Hasan, Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Towhid Hridoy, Shahadat Hossain, Shamim Hossain, Avishek Das, Akbar Ali (capt, wk), Rakibul Hasan, Shoriful Islam, Tanzim Hasan SakibRead More: Yuvraj terms Australia bushfire tragic, calls for action against climate change

World cricket cannot afford cancellation of IPL: Sundar Raman

World cricket cannot afford cancellation of IPL: Sundar Raman

MUMBAI: Unprecedented in our lifetime, the havoc caused by the Covid-19, brought about has left, the sports industry in absolute disarray.Given that India and cricket, from India's perspective, seem to be back to normal in the coming months, there is much to worry about as the gaming economy lies in a shamble. Few understand the global and local economy of sport from a bird's perspective such as Sundar Raman.The former chief executive officer of the Indian Premier League (IPL), who has worked on T20 ownership from the start and was one of the main practical work on the International Cricket Council (ICC), is closely monitoring how things have gone spiraling out. Raman is working on a white paper that analyzes the current cricket crisis, the stress of the coming months, and the potential treatments the industry can consider in the short and long term. Exclusively share these reviews with TOI.If there is a controversy between the World Cup T20 or IPL, it explains why the IPL should be where no sport can withstand the financial crisis today. From Raman's point of view, this is an annual property that generates about 40% of global cricket revenue versus a global property that has the ease of reprogramming for a later stage.He says that IPL alone guarantees US$100m in players' salaries annually (Rs 85 cr per franchise multiplied by 8). This accounts for broadcast revenue for at least three to four ICC membership councils together, confirming what is at stake for players financially on a global scale when it comes to the T20 in India.Raman has worked on two possible scenarios that may unfold in the coming months: Scenario 1: Sport returns to TV / digital platforms in July 2020 and fans stadiums in January 2021 Scenario 2: Sport returns to TV / digital platforms by December 2020 and fans stadiums by April 2021Raman says the focus of this document is to shine a light on the micro-economy of sport with a focus on the global cricket scene in the top three incomes of the sports economy, which are media/broadcast revenue, sponsorship revenue and Game Day (ticketing) revenue and the impact of COVID on the overall ecosystem.With a global cricket economy estimated US$1.9b and a heavy dependence on India (nearly two-thirds of revenue is generated by playing in India or with the participation of India), India realizes only 45% of its full potential, thus allowing other countries to cash.“This potential opportunity for India’s contribution to revenue (which India has not provided) is only $ US$ 1.2b over a 4-year cycle (2019-2022)," he says.A third of cricket revenue in 2019 came from IPL. With a fair market price structure, nearly 24% ($ 100 million) of transmission rights fees earned by IPL are spent as player salaries every year. In 2019, despite being a year in the Cricket World Cup, IPL revenue was estimated to be 30% higher than that of the World Cup (not including CWC ticket issuance revenue, such as the host retains). IPL 2020 revenue was expected to increase by 70% compared to ICC WT20 revenue in 2020. With the current uncertainty surrounding these two events, this remains a hypothetical scenario. Raman says, "Canceling these two events will have a serious impact on the cricket economy for this year."However, in the event of an ICC event, where contracts will last until 2023, postponement until 2022 may be possible without losing income. Not hosting an IPL or binary season for any country will result in an income loss, which is undesirable. In an ideal world, the ICC event to be held in 2021 in India can move to Australia as it is in the same October window, and India can host the event in 2022 by creating a suitable window. This will allow time for economic recovery and will not confuse the calendar. "Also, if the WT20 is made behind closed doors, the front door revenue for Australia will be zero. For IPL, even if conducted behind closed doors, the impact is less as it is extinguished by more than 8 stakeholder teams and the IPL economy still supports one season behind closed doors.“IPL remains the most important event for the global cricket economy. With a contribution of about a third of global cricket revenue annually, the importance of the global cricket economy IPL cannot be overstated. If IPL is considered the separate cricket agency and IPL revenue will be removed from Indian cricket board revenue, and IPL will appear as the largest Generator of global cricket revenue, which is even higher than the ICC and ACC revenue.Read More: Stadiums, sports complexes allowed to open, spectators barredTherefore, given the significant contribution and annual nature of IPL, event cancellation would be a severe revenue loss for the cricket economy, something that no sport can afford in the current economic environment. While the jury has not yet decided on the International Criminal Court WT20 this year, the postponement of (T20 Global) deserves serious consideration.The document also states: While India earns US$ 863m, the value attributable to revenue from the Indian share is estimated at US$ 1.2b. This delta in excess of US$ 300m+ annually can be seen as lost opportunities for India or in a more positive perspective as India's contribution to cricket outside India. For 4 years, this value was astonishing at US$ 1.2b. Broadcast and sponsorship deals for the ICC and ACC events are mainly driven by the large fan base in India and the large audience in India. Media reports put TV audiences into the 2019 ICC CWC Final between England and New Zealand in England with 15.4 million in Sky in England and 183 million in India.Additionally, out of a total of 706 million one-time broadcasts of the 2019 ICC ODI World Cup, 509 million were from India. This reliance on India is also evident from the relatively low value that global broadcasters obtain through licensing from all other markets despite organized events in some of those markets.“India’s importance to the global cricket economy cannot be overstated. Outside Australia and England, which have been doing big business in the domestic market, worth US$ 1b over 4 years, other cricket paintings and Raman say they depend on Indian tours as part of bilateral props to attract broadcasters’ attention Indians.For countries where transactions in the domestic market are not large, flights from countries like India, England, or Pakistan become important, because they open up large transportation rights abroad, and are much greater than national rights.Many cricket boards have provisions in their broadcast agreements for how many games to play against India during the agreement period. Failure to comply with this may adversely affect the realization of the value of transmission rights. Given that the majority of these boards without broadcasting and playing rights within an income range of US$ 35 to US$ 45m, were not taken into account in the document analyzing a global crisis, and therefore, the main players.Image Source- Times of IndiaRead More: IPL not happening anytime soon: BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal

How to reschedule T20 World Cup? ICC committee debates in BCCI's absence

MUMBAI: Now that the ICC T20 World Cup scheduled in Australia this year between October and November, the question to be asked in the rounds is how and where this edition is modified between 2021 and 2023.A day after TOI reported that the postponement of the 2020 edition is a certainty, and an official announcement on the doorstep, the International Criminal Court's Financial and Trade Affairs Committee (FMCA) met in a teleconference with ICC CEO Manu Sawhney presiding over it.Among other things on the agenda, the main debate has revolved around how and where this year's T20 World Cup is being modified, one that will be lost in the epidemic that has caused global cricket, like any other sport around the world. . .“It was proposed for the first time to postpone this year’s edition (World Cup T20) to February and March of next year. This is no longer possible. Then it was suggested the other day to allow Australia to host the 2021 version and informed sources of events told TOI that India should do so in February and March 2022.However, it is understood that certain members of the FMCA, a committee chaired by the President of the Pakistan Cricket Council, Ehsan Mani, opposed the proposal.The logic behind the objection?If the T20 World Cup is organized in October / November next year, how can the T20 World Cup be organized in February / March? "Do we say that the team that wins the 2021 tournament will remain a champion for only five or six months? What's the point of that?" sources added.First, the British Chamber of Commerce and Industry did not exchange its views on the matter. Second, given BCCI revenue at stake, as they host the 2021 version, their views on this issue have not been researched yet. "If all countries are concerned about the epidemic affecting income cycles, then it is so for India. The other side is that India is being hit, which means everyone will be affected by it. The views of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry are very necessary," industry officials say.The FMCA, led by Mani,  as its independent director ICC Independent Director Indra Nooyi,President of Cricket South Africa (CSA) Chris Nenzani, President of the European Central Bank Colin Graves, President of Cricket Australia Earl Eddings, and Vice President of the International Criminal Court  Imran Khawaja. The ICC President Shashank Manohar and CEO Sawhney are also on the commission by holding other important positions in the governing body."Two years ago it was adequately confirmed that India would not have a single representative on this committee. The Canadian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has raised this as a matter of principle in the past, but thanks to the administrative deadlock that leaked due to court issues, India has not been able to follow this vigorously, " add those in the know.Why should the Indian Cricket Council agree to host the tournament in 2022 in February-March and give up hosting rights in 2021?"To suit Cricket Australia?BCCI is already making sure Cricket Australia is not losing by making sure India makes tours there this year for the test series. If the International Criminal Court and Cricket Australia want India to compel it in 2021 by agreeing to host in 2022, the Chamber of Commerce will be fair in claiming sufficient reasons and seeking a fair share of the obligation in return, "says follow-up developments. Also, why would the station agree? Star India coincides with ICC news anchor, as well as the Indian Premier League (IPL), which takes place annually in April and May. "Why would they agree to accept successive T20 events? It is not recommended to play in a window from October to November because it does not clash with other features in the same format," the sources added.Read More: India May Tour South Africa In August For Three-Match T20I SeriesArticle Source : Times of India

Cricket Australia wants to host 2021 T20 World Cup; ICC says no decision taken

MUMBAI: Cricket Australia (CA) chairman Earl Eddings wrote a letter to the International Cricket Council's Financial and Trade Affairs Committee (F&CA) requesting that Australia be allowed to host the 2021 World Cup T20, instead of 2020.By doing this, Eddings and CA have reiterated that they will not be in a position to organize the 2020 version of the tournament, scheduled for October 18 to November 15. Indeed, the Eddings letter specifically requests that Australia be allowed to host the 2021 version instead of 2022, given multiple commercials at stake.The email, which was sent by Eddings (TOI owns this message), was flagged only for members of the Financial & Commercial Affairs Commission (F&CA). The CA chair is also a member of the panel, while BCCI is not part of this committee. F&CA is chaired by the president of Pakistan Cricket Council, Ehsan Mani, who was promoted to the presidency after former BCCI president Shashank Manohar took over the board. TOI understands that CA sent this message more than a week ago.Boards say they are fascinated by the ICC statement given that the CA has made its position very clear: it does not expect the 2020 event to be organized.“Why does the ICC not acknowledge that they have a letter from the CA chief? These are things that give the administration a bad name. As they said (CPI),” the current president (Manohar) confirmed is not looking for an extension. About your state. "Is this the whole truth?" Say the sources that follow developments.Eddings' shared concern in the message is his stated view that "it would be harmful to cricket if the cancellation of the" Australian event "(this year's T20 World Cup) is replaced by the award of the T20 World Cup in October 2022".Eddings message says: “Fortunately, Australia has succeeded in“ Curve (Covid) ”, which means there is more certainty of being able to play in Australia in 2021 (which is essential to maintaining membership distribution). It will give India a year Another is to solve any of the issues related to Covid, "stressing that India should host the 2022 event.Cricket Australia says it has invested heavily in the last women's T20 to "make it a success" and has spent a lot of money marketing the event. Given the current financial burden, CA adds that there will be no guarantee for continued government support in 2022 that has agreed to pay $ 4.5 million to tourism partner rights.Will India agree to host the 2022 event?As long as BCCI hosts the IPL every year and its bilateral obligations are respected in the country, India will lose little. "The proceeds of the ICC event are not actually compared to the stakes that the T20 League Chamber of Commerce and all other international cockroaches have at home. So if India really wants to provide service to Australia, why not?" Say developments follow. Ultimately, it is bound to be a political rather than a commercial decision, given that financial stakeholders have little or no profit in the negotiations.What's in store on Thursday?With the ICC stressing that chairman Shashank Manohar will not seek to extend his term and documents drafted for nominations after understanding between members, the only other agenda item other than discussing the T20 World Cup is deciding the election date. Sources say, "Technically, the deadline for nominations will be about two weeks after ratification, which is Thursday. Therefore, elections can be held in late June or early July." From now until the next elections, he expected the T20 World Cup to continue and be a "political debate".Article Source: timesofindiaRead More: How to reschedule T20 World Cup?
