Can't blame the BCCI keeping the international press out in order to 'vet' what pictues become available to school kids. You would not not want some of the examples of Englands poor fielding being on general viewing or used in textbooks.

This is really funny TV shows to be organised. You really had a dig at BCCI for their arrogance and their say at ICC. It's pertinent to the present predicament and hope better wisdom prevails upon BCCI to allow News photographers and others to cover the rest of the Cricket series of England team.
