    HISTORY OF INDIAN CRICKET

    In 1911, an all-India cricket team visited England for the first time, sponsored and captained by the Maharaja of Patiala, and featuring the best cricketers of the time. It was in 1926 that two representatives of the Calcutta Cricket Club traveled to London to attend a couple of meetings of the Imperial Cricket Conference, predecessor to the current International Cricket Council. Although technically not an official representative of Indian cricket, it was allowed to attend by Lord Harris, chairman of the conference. An outcome of the meeting was the MCC’s decision to send a team to India, led by Arthur Gilligan, who had captained England in The Ashes. The Hindus, as well as the all-India team, performed impressively during this tour.

    In a meeting with the Maharaja of Patiala and others, Gilligan praised Indian cricket and promised to press for its inclusion in the ICC if all the promoters of the game in the land came together to establish a single controlling body. An assurance was given and a meeting held in Delhi on November 21, 1927, attended by delegates from Sind, Punjab, Patiala, Delhi, United Provinces, Rajputana, Alwar, Bhopal, Gwalior, Baroda, Kathiawar and Central India. A consensus was reached to create a board for control of cricket in India. Another meeting, on December 10, 1927, brought a unanimous decision to form a “provisional” board of control to represent cricket in India.

Our federation has been organizing Twenty 20 Cricket championships keeping in mind that in India thousands of all level poor cricket players from backward areas, remote & rural areas, backward class & poor background, Govt. Schools, small towns/streets in India are playing cricket but golden opportunities are less and hidden talents are surplus. India is a big country for playing cricket where cricket is religion, world cricket all most sponsored by Indian companies. Indian Twenty 20 Cricket Federation (ITCF-INDIA) is a big official platform for those neglected surplus talented poor cricket players from all over India who cannot avail any opportunity to come forward and serve the country through their cricket talent. These Surplus players i. e. from schools, villages and town streets waste their time, money and talent by playing under false associations moreover most players involve in human smuggling and spoil their future. The only motive of these fake associations is to collect the money from innocent players. We have our own rules and regulation of Twenty 20 Cricket (20 over game ) and Twenty 20 Innings Cricket (game for 20-20 overs of both innings of each side totaling to4 innings game) and own Legal Twenty 20 Cricket infrastructure in India. which have no concern with those BCCI & ICC.

  4. According to Kantipur FM, Amrit Bhattarai has top scored 82 (9*4, 2*6) very aggressively, then Rom Shrestha with 38, Chandra Saut 28, Gyanendra for 20.

  5. Nepal has made 233 runs before being bowled out in 49 overs.
    It is good show of batting and wish them to continue batting this way… then no one can stops us to win the title for the fifth time.

    and Saudi Arabia has already started their inning, they are 3 for none in 3 overs.

  6. Nepal has won the toss and elected to bat first.

    This match is proving good match practice to us as we crossed 200. Now, it would be easy to defend when we cross 200. I believe, Our Bowlers are good enough to restrict them below.

    I am not so confident how well Nepal will do this time. Hopefully they will reach the final at least. I was reading the article about the article on http://www.asiancricket.org that reads “Not Necessary Nepal” and it seems other teams have pretty good players. And besides, Gyanendra Malla has been complaining that they haven’t had enough time to practice, and he also said that Nepali bowling is not that good so he is hoping their batting will win matches. This worries me a lot that they have to rely on their batting considering Nepal’s batting history. Even Roy Dias has been talking about how they did not have enough time to practice. I feel the Nepali team this time is not confident at all, and so they are trying to cover up in case they do not make it to the top 2. Gyanendra Malla is the only player who has proved time and again but I don’t know about the others.
