Sri Lanka to re-impose ban on ICL players.

Until now I have been only half-impressed by the purported power of the BCCI.

According to the Sri Lankan Sports Minister, Gamini Lokuge, "A life-ban ban revoked on Sri Lanka's rebel cricketers for joining the Indian Cricket League (ICL) may be re-imposed on them".

Even though in the larger scheme of things, Sri Lanka is small fry, the manner in which the BCCI made them do their bidding is simply impressive.

Now I am ready to believe the tall tales that emanated out of Australia last year.

BTW, Ranatunga deserves this kick in the butt.
