|BCCI scrap the new kits as their astrologer deems it to be unlucky.|
Now with light being shed on this BCCI's decision, one cannot help but wonder just how many of the BCCI's decision has been based on such superstitions. Most of BCCI's nonsensical decisions can probably be attributed to this. This lapse in reasoning and logic is perhaps what attributed the BCCI to pick Piyush Chawla and Rohit Sharma in the World Cup squad. The appointment of Greg Chappell as the coach, the dropping of Sehwag due to 'injury', and scheduling so many India - Sri Lanka series all makes sense now.
Now that the strange decisions by BCCI make sense, I just wonder how many cricket boards also follow these stone age superstitious beliefs. Could West Indies dropping their number one player, Chris Gayle and England dropping Kevin Pietersen after he scored one of his best centuries be attributed to some senseless beliefs of the unknown? The ECB is probably as much superstitious as the BCCI with their persistence that Samit Patel is not over weight and the selection of Darren Pattinson in 2008.
At least these revelations that the decisions made by the boards aren't completely random and does have a reasonable explanation in their beliefs of superstition does settle a few nerves and its good to know that the future of Indian cricket is in the hands of the person who reads the stars.
