Can We Do It.

If you think the term "International Cricket" would ALSO includes International Men's and Women's Cricket, read further. The next One Day International between India and England is on 7th December 2005. The last match would be on 9th December 2005.

In its Sports Page
http://www.ndtv.com/sports/default.asp
NDTV has an Events Calender. For 7th December 2005, now it reads

International Cricket 7 December 2005 No match found for requested date

Soccer 7 December 2005 No match found for requested date

Tennis 7 December 2005 No match found for requested date

Motorsports 7 December 2005 No match found for requested date

Golf 7 December 2005 USPGA Tommy Bahama Challenge Grayhawk GC, Scottsdale, Arizona

Hockey 7 December 2005

Dec 7 Fourth ODI, Silchar is an International Cricket Event, technically.

For those who didnt know, The 3rd One Dayer was watched by 20000 people in Guwahati.The Indians reached the finals of the World Cup.And in today's NDTV's sports news there isnt even a mention that India won yesterday's one dayer.

Yet, NDTV did a wonderful program on Women and Sports some days back, hosted by Burkha Dutt, which also included few women cricketers.


NDTV has a feedback section

How much time will it take for you to write.

Dear NDTV
Please include the India vs England Women's One Day International series in your events calendar International Cricket section.Dec 7 Fourth ODI, SilcharDec 9 Fifth ODI, Calcutta
They play cricket and its an international match


IF thats not possible, please change the "International Cricket" category to "International Men's Cricket"
or in the message instead of "No match found for requested date " please make it "No match that we know of, found for requested date"Thank you and have a wonderful day.


Of course you dont have to write the same thing. And actually you dont have to write it , if you dont believe in it:) But of course I am hoping you will.

This is not to ask for more coverage from NDTV of women's cricket. If it chooses to not report about an India's win in an International Match in Indian soil watched by 20000 people at the stadium, its its Choice. But surely it has to acknowledge that Women's International Cricket comes under the category of International Cricket?

We are NOT requesting for Coverage, just Acknowledgement. Is that too much?

  4. NODTV Replies: No way! How can you ask us to stop coverage of the celebs visiting Big B in Lilavati? However we hope to cover women's cricket too. Ask the women cricket team to visit him. We will give ample coverage provided they wear extra short skirts and develop supersized breasts.

    PS: Any match fixing or Pawar v/s Dalmia stuff among them?
