It's all about the mo-ney.
Nothing will be served to the ECB. They'll get their money back. BCCI will play the one-off test and help get the money back. Maybe they will even send Indian players to "The Hundred" next year to massively boost the Hundred's commercial value. Already there are talks about how we can reciprocate the gesture that England did in 2008 when the terror attacks happened in India, and yet England stayed back and played.
Its time other boards press the squeeze on the BCCI to make them send Indian players to overseas leagues. There is a clear opportunity to be utilized!
Yes, let's just multiply our populations to 1 billion eachWork on developing your own markets if you want the BCCI's power to lose its hold.

Well the quite the opposite for me.(I have no attachment or passion towards test cricket anymore; I tune in to it on the 4th and 5th days of an India test match, and that too only if things are heading up for an exciting finish). I can see how people attached to test cricket, would react (I am seeing it here).
And yeah the IPL for me has not interest at all maybe for you guys to see MS but to be brutally brutally honest he is done & dusted.Well the quite the opposite for me.
Bilaterals T20s are absolutely meaningless for me, ODIs still the most boring of the rest 2 International format.
Test cricket is where I feel the current Indian team performs really well yeah you can cite out the common obvious blaring mistakes that this team does but it does the same in the other 2 format as well.
But the way this team has played makes one to watch this exciting brand of cricket especially by the bowlers (who were superb in last overseas cycle) as well is making tests truly exciting to watch.

WT20 an international tournament makes it exciting to watch but given an option would rather watch a Test match or series than the former.
And yet the biggest irony is,
BCCI, the richest cricket board in the world,
is officially a Not for Profit Organization.
Fair Enough.I watch non-CSK games in the IPL too. I can watch a non-India game in T20I's too. I just dont have the patience or the interest to follow every single day of a test match anymore (and that too, only for India games). First 3 days, its Cricinfo all the way. If the game spices up, I tune in towards the 4th or 5th day to the live streaming.
Anyways, I would possibly be one of the few wildcards from the test cricket generation, that doesn't share the enthusiasm for test cricket. When I did have the passion for test cricket, India never performed that well. Now that I have lost the attachment for tests, India are performing really well. But no matter how hard I try, this team doesn't ignite my passion.
They must be trying to use that loophole to gain some benefits of being "non-profit".They are still a private entity; they have vehemently refused to come under the umbrella of the "RTI" (Right to Information) act of the Indian government.
P.s: I am sorry if the discussion here went off topic, but since the tour is officially over and I had some time to kill....
So to think about not taking field in a decider would mean a whole lot of rubbish!
