The BCCIs technical committee, headed by former India captain Sourav Ganguly, decided to have all Ranji matches from the coming season at neutral venues while inter-zonal system of the Duleep Trophy will be replaced by four all-India level teams picked by the selection panel. The meeting was also attended by BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke. "The committee discussed the format for Duleep Trophy for the season 2016-17. It was recommended that selectors would pick four teams to participate in a round-robin format tournament. The entire tournament will be a day/night affair," a BCCI release stated. With India playing as many as 13 Test matches at home against New Zealand, England and Australia, it was proposed by Thakur that all Test hopefuls and the fringe players should get a chance to get used to the pink ball. "The president feels that like Challenger Trophy, this seasons Duleep should have all the big players as well as Test hopefuls getting a chance to play with pink balls under lights. Thats why it has been decided there will be no zonal system this time round," a member of the technical committee told PTI today. It was also learnt that Ganguly had suggested about having a quality foreign team for the Duleep Trophy, but it was decided otherwise. "Gangulys proposal was duly considered. But then we felt that supposedly we call a first-class side from Australia and if they lose the first match in knock-out system, the purpose of inviting them would get lost," the source added. It was learnt that all matches will be played with kookaburra balls but some other sports goods firms are also in discussions to manufacture pink balls for D/N games. The other major decision was having Ranji Trophy games at neutral venues. "In a bid to make domestic cricket more competitive and rule out the issues related to preparing specific wickets for home teams, as well as to expose players to play in different conditions, the BCCI Technical Committee recommended neutral venues for the Ranji Trophy matches This is a step recommended to make domestic Ranji Trophy cricket more competitive," the release stated.

The Sena asked Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis to take stringent action against AIB and Bhat for allegedly seeking to vitiate social harmony through videos on Mangeshkar and Tendulkar. Party leader Neelam Gorhe has written to Fadnavis seeking action against those behind the video which she alleged was made by people with "deranged mentality". "Such people try to misuse the popularity of icons like Sachin and Lata tai for their own publicity," Gorhe told PTI.

Sushma moves to ensure safety of African students
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday spoke to Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on the safety of African students in Delhi. The move comes in the wake of rising attacks on African students in the national capital. "I have spoken to Raj Nath Singh and Lt Governor of Delhi regarding the attack on African nationals in South Delhi on Saturday. They assured me that the culprits will be arrested soon and sensitisation campaign will be launched in areas where African nationals reside (sic)," she tweeted. Sushma asked her deputy Gen V K Singh and Secretary (economic relations) Amar Sinha in the Ministry of External Affairs to meet African students who announced holding a demonstration at Jantar Mantar on Tuesday. Rajnath Singh with Delhi Police Commissioner and other officials met the community members in Chhattarpur village in the southern fringes of the capital, where the recent attack took place. The Delhi Police also arrested several individuals believed to have been associated with Saturday's attack and with the killing of a Congolese student. The junior foreign minister, however, blamed the media for "blowing out of proportion" issues surrounding the attack on African nationals in Rajpur Khurd (near Chhattarpur), which Singh described as a "minor scuffle". "Had detailed discussion with Delhi Police and found that media blowing up minor scuffle as attack on African nationals in Rajpur Khurd. Why is media doing this? As responsible citizens, let us question them and their motives," Singh tweeted, questioning the media's motive. The murder of a Congolese student in South Delhi's Vasant Kunj snowballed into a diplomatic crisis as African nations threatened to pull out of a government-sponsored event to celebrate the Africa Day on May 26. They relented later only after receiving personal assurance from Sushma. The killing was followed by an attack on a Nigerian student in Telangana. The Delhi Police registered three cases of physical assault and criminal intimidation of African nationals in South Delhi. Two women — one from Uganda and the other from South Africa — and two Nigerian men in South Delhi had filed complaints of physical assault and criminal intimidation.
