India gets warm up matches in Australia


Dravid’s wish has been granted. India will play a grand total of 2 warm up matches in the course of its long tour of Australia. The first game is before the 1st Test to begin on Boxing Day (26th of December) and the second one after the end of the 2nd Test in Sydney. One looks back fondly to the days when a team travelled abroad, played warm up games, got to know the conditions and pitches well before embarking on the tour in right earnest. But the greed of the Boards is getting the better of them. So squeeze in as many international matches as possible. Who wants 3 day games when u can get a 7 match ODI series. If that is not enough rope in a quandrangular or pentangular Twenty20 series. After all these games should not the players get time to do their endorsements, ad shoots, celebrity appearances etc?
