India and Australia now have their own trophy to play for.
And appropriately enough, it will be named after former captains Allan Border and Sunil Gavaskar, who also have the honour of being the highest, and second highest, run-getters in Test cricket.
The Border-Gavaskar Tropy is being donated by the Indo- Australian Business Council to mark its centenary, and will be first presented jointly by Border and Gavaskar to the winner of the one-off Test to be played between Australia and India at the Firozeshah Kotla ground in Delhi from October 10 to 14.
Announcing this, BCCI president Inderjit Singh Bindra added that as part of the IABC`s New Horizon Programme, the Australian Prime Minister would lead a 400-member delegation to India to watch the one-day international between the two sides at the PCA stadium in Mohali on November 3, as also the final of the triangular series in- volving Australia, India and South Africa at the Wankhede Stadium in Bombay on November 6.
Meanwhile the BCCI boss announced that the Asian Cricket Council, in course of a recent meeting in London, had decided to hold a 12-nation tournament in Kuala Lumpur in September this year. The participating nations would be drawn from the associate members of the ICC.
Other decisions taken at the ACC summit were that cricket would be part of the Commonwealth Games agenda, when the annual sports event is held in Kuala Lumpur in 1997.
Sri Lanka has been accorded the honour of hosting the next Asia Cup. Meanwhile, Hong Kong willhost the first ever Asian Youth Cricket Cup in 1997. This tournament would provide exposure to the best young talent in Asia and prepare them for the first Youth World Cup for under-19 players, to be held in South Africa in 1998.
