Two major ICC events were concluded recently. First up was the ICC Champions Trophy, which is often termed as the ‘mini World Cup’. The second ‘once in four years’ event was the biggest event of women’s cricket, the ICC Women’s World Cup. Though one event is for the men and the other is for women, there are some similarities between the events. Both the events were held in England and Wales.

Both the events were held in England and Wales. The cricketers in blue performed well in both the tournaments. But unfortunately, ended as the ‘tragic heroes’ in the final. Speaking of the ICC Champions Trophy, Kohli and his boys were playing superbly until the final game. They met their arch-rivals Pakistan in the finals and were bulldozed by the green shirts.

When on one hand the men in blue were termed as favourites for the Champions Trophy, not many were optimistic about the chances of their female counterparts in the Women’s World Cup. But Raj and her Bravehearts fought against all odds and made it to the final. The WWC final was a well contested one, unlike the CT final. India were defeated by England by a very slim margin.

But the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is happy with the performances of both the teams, though they ended up being on the losing side in the all important game. The BCCI has decided to reward the selection committees of both the teams for finding the perfect mix which was suited to the team.

Rs 15 lakh each!

We have seen the players receive a hefty amount whenever they perform well in a major ICC event. Now, the BCCI has decided that each member of the selection committee of both the teams will receive Rs 15 for selecting the best possible teams for the big stage. The BCCI had a meeting with the Committee of Administrators (CoA) today (Wednesday) where this decision was taken.
