    BCCI, Lalit Modi, Srinivasan - it's all about conflict of interest

    Bangladesh loss: Why it's a harsh, bitter reality for Indian cricket

    The tour was supposed to showcase all its might and superior strength which would have cemented Ravi Shastri's claims for a long-term contract as its Team Director and provide steel to the argument that the two-captain theory is a workable arrangement.

    Kohli rant: Star player's behaviour towards journalist disgraceful

    Before I come to the point, a bit of a preamble is required. Even at the best of times, the relationship between those who perform and those who write and pass judgments on them is tenuous. And at the worst of times, it is tense and edgy. Over the years, both have generally learnt to live with each other and not cross the line between being downright rude and extra respectful, writes Pradeep Magazine.

    It is not that MS Dhoni was a great Test captain and Virat Kholi is not ready to step in, just that the timing of the whole thing suggests that something may have snapped somewhere forcing Dhoni to take this decision so abruptly, writes Pradeep Magazine.

    'Dhoni lied to Mudgal panel, Meiyappan was in regular touch'

    The most disturbing feature of Justice Mukul Mudgal's report is not that the top BCCI officials are complicit in wrongdoing, but that the malaise may have spread and in the process compromised India's most powerful cricketer, writes Pradeep Magazine.

    BCCI now has a 'Yes Man' in Ravi Shastri

    I write this more in anger than thoughtful calmness. Without mincing words and getting right to the heart of the matter, I must say that Ravi Shastri has been rewarded for totally aligning himself with BCCI's honchos.

    Tendulkar caught in trappings of an achiever in real world

    In the cricket world of today, driven purely by commercial interests, a sportsman, especially of Sachin Tendulkar’s stature, can’t be expected to be 'pristine pure' like the whites he used to wear in Test cricket, writes Pradeep Magazine.

    Gavaskar not immune to conflict of interests

    While Sunil Gavaskar still evokes awe for his stupendous cricketing feats, his dalliance with the cricket administration, that includes his contract with the BCCI as a commentator, inspires little confidence, writes Pradeep Magazine.

    Ignoring Cheteshwar Pujara is harming India

    Cheteshwar Pujara without doubt, the best batsman, along with Virat Kohli, in India. Yet, he does not figure in the Indian one-day team. What could be the reason for the selectors and MS Dhoni ignoring him, asks Pradeep Magazine.

    Dhoni needs to show Sourav's visionary quality

    The problem today is that the calendar is so crammed with the entry of T-20 format and IPL, that it is almost impossible to schedule a series that could give enough time to the players to acclimatise. Pradeep Magazine writes.

    Dhoni’s message to media: Will protect privacy

    As of now, Dhoni deserves admiration for hoodwinking the scrutiny of the “electronic eye” and not turning a private affair into a "tamasha”, a feat which we thought was almost impossible to achieve, writes Pradeep Magazine.

    Dreary Tests in this age, what a crying shame!

    The new serene face of Sachin Tendulkar, inspired by the same passion for batting and hunger for runs which he had at the beginning of his career, makes one almost believe that we may well see him score 20,000 Test runs. Pradeep Magazine writes.
