Nuts and bolts

In an earlier post, I had referenced a DNA story on the vision statement circulated by Sharad Pawar to members of the working committee; in that post, I mentioned that it would have been useful for readers if the paper had come up with a list of the actual ideas, as opposed to the rhetoric. Here is a subsequent story. Interesting snippets:
PCB and BCCI decide to host the Indo-Pak Test series on Ashes pattern. The BCCI and PCB also agreed to host an annual match between the national champions of the two countries. The match between Ranji Trophy winners and Kaed-e-Azam champions will be held in India and Pakistan alternately.

And this, relating to enhanced prize money for domestic competitions:

* Ranji Trophy Elite Group

Winners: Rs 1 crore
Losing finalists: Rs 50 lakh
Losing semifinalists: Rs 25 lakh
Round robin match winners: Rs 10 lakh
Plate Group Winners: Rs 50 lakh
Losing finalists: Rs 25 lakh
Losing semifinalists: Rs 15 lakh
Round robin match winners: Rs 5 lakh

* Duleep Trophy

Winners: Rs 80 lakh
Losing finalists: Rs 40 lakh
Pool matches: Rs 20 lakh for winners
