How is this good negotiations? Its blackmail and bullying. CSA removes Lorgaat, BCCI is happy, otherwise CSA get nothing from BCCI. Who can afford not to have India touring?
And CSA gets two test and 3 ODI. And by the way, 2 tests are an insult as you might have seen with SA vs Aus, and lately, Pak vs SA. It just makes it difficult to get a result, and even if there is a result, it might not be a true reflection of the game.
really looking forward to your work satish regarding the tampering incident
He reminds me of Henry Kissinger.
Henry Kissinger, was the 'ultimate player' in International negotiations. No country (including his own, USA) had ever seen anyone better than him in "managing" any opponent to see his way, and bring him/that country around to USA's advantage. Kissinger's tactics were class room stuff, for many of us who had registered for the "International Negotiations" course at Harvard, in the sixties.
In post independence modern Indian history V.K Krishna Menon, is the best India produced for dealing with "difficult" countries. But, even he was mostly words & less actions; overt & loud; nothing covert, smooth & silent.
Now, India seem to have proved that it can produce Indian versions of Henry Kissingers. The Govt should make use of them to handle tough situations in international negotiations, like in demolishing unfair trade barriers, changing clauses in GAAT which are unfair to developing countries.
Sorry, for posting a "semi-serious" comment here!
