In yet another shock of the tournament, underdogs Japan Selection defeated Shizuoka Kytes by 19 runs. The implication of this is that we will tie with Shizuoka Kytes, if we manage a win against the Tokyo Giants, which will be a close call when run rate come into play.

In the Vision report submitted to the govt. of India, BCCI’s vision include putting up the best team for the next world cup in 2002! Poor BCCI, they are unaware of the fact that the next world cup is in 2003, not in 2002. Please do not consider this as a mere typo in a draft document. This is the document that BCCI took one month to produce and given to the government of India.


That’s all in this edition.
