Cricket, Inequity and Obama

Ian Chappell, former Aussie cricket captain and journalist, comments upon the post-Mumbai situation in world cricket. He sums the cricket world's dependence on India's huge market and the consequences as :
'Test cricket is shaping up as a mirror image of an Indian society that is often described as being made up of the have lots and the have nots.'
'The one big difference between the world situation and that of cricket is the lack of any leader with the potential and charisma of an Obama looming on the horizon in cricket.'
Perhaps, this is the moment to re-organize the lopsided priorities of all cricket playing nations who cannot manage a sport played by less than a dozen nations at the highest level.
