One captain for all 3 formats - Sri Lanka to adpot soon

Once again the national cricket team will adopt the one captain policy instead of one captain for the Test and ODIs and a separate captain for the T-20 segments. In all possibility this change would happen before the Lankan team tours India for a short three T-20 match series from February 6 to 16.

A spokesman for SLC told the Sunday Times "Yes, we have taken a decision on these lines, but, still we have not got the executive committee sanction for it. " The spokesman said "We do not see any special reason that we should have a separate captain for the T-20 segment. If the national captain is good enough to lead the other two segments why shouldn't he captain the T-20 team also?"
In February 2014, when Angelo Mathews was named to succeed Mahela Jayawardena in his second coming as the national captain, Dinesh Chandimal was named the captain of the T-20 segment. However just prior to the T-20 World Cup that was played in Sri Lanka in Bangladesh in 2014, Chandimal who faced a sudden slump in his batting form was dropped and fast bowler Lasith Malinga was named as stop-gap captain.
In the last T-20 series which Sri Lanka lost to New Zealand 2-0 Chandimal was named as captain after Malinga was out of the series through injury. Meanwhile the much flaunted Zonal Tournament would be stillborn barring the Zonal T-20 tournament which already is in the pipeline.
At the end of the Premier League 3 day tournament, the Super league which was to be played for the duration of only three days would be extended for four days, thus shelving the zonal tournament.

Film on MS Dhoni to release in 2015 - Poster Tweeted by Sakshi

A biopic on Indian captain MS Dhoni is set to release next year, the poster of which was shared by Dhoni's wife Sakshi today on Twitter. 

Sakshi tweeted the movie poster and wrote, "Clearing out all those rumours being carried out past few days.It was all false.. Here you go ....BOOM !!!."

The name of the movie is "MS Dhoni - The Untold Story". According to the poster, Sushant Singh Rajput will play the role of Indian skipper and the biopic will be directed by Neeraj Pandey. 

Earlier this month, there were reports that Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had stopped the movie stating that it cannot be released till Dhoni retires from the game. "MSD has no choice but to comply," an unnamed friend of Dhoni was quoted by "Mumbai Mirror" when asked about BCCI stopping the film. 

"To begin with, it was not a commercially viable project because a sports drama, even on a game as popular as cricket, has a niche audience. But the real roadblock came from BCCI. If we do go ahead with the film it will only happen after MSD's career on the field has come to an end," added the friend.

Now, questions will be raised whether Dhoni is retiring in 2015? or BCCI has given the green signal for the movie to hit the screens next year.
