After todays BCCI�s meeting. I predict as

1. The issue will be temporarily resolved.
2. Both G and C will continue with team India with their current positions.
3. After few days/months C will resign by himself, G will continue leading till world cup.

What is your prediction?

The following are some of the ideas for Ganguly to regain form and stay
in the middle for a longer duration.(subject to approval by I.C.C)

IDEA NO:1: Plastic Ball or Tennis Ball or Rubber Ball to be used while
bowling to Ganguly.

IDEA NO:2: Only one stick should be kept while Ganguly is Batting
instead of Three so that his chances of getting out bowled will be

IDEA NO:3: Dada can wrap up his legs with 4 or 5 bats instead of pads,
so that there is no chance of getting out lbw.

IDEA NO:4: The size of the ball can be reduced to the size of a lemon or
size of his bat can be increased to twice its size. Or the size of the
ground can be decreased to that of a Basketball Ground.

IDEA NO:5: Fast Bowlers are prohibited to bowl the following deliveries
to Dada.
They should not bowl Inswinger,Outswinger,Off cutter, Leg
cutter,Bouncer,Short Pitched Ball, Reverse swinging ball, yorker,reverse
swinging yorker,slower ball and most importantly in and around the off
stump corridor.

IDEA NO:6: Slow Bowlers are prohibited from bowling off spin,leg
spin,doosra,googly,china man,flipper,faster ball.

IDEA NO:7: Speed restrictions for bowlers:

IDEA NO:8 Fast bowlers in their runup should run like Mohinder Amarnath
and slow bowlers should not run at all.

IDEA NO:9 Ganguly can change his position as medium fast bowler instead
of Batsman and bat at no:11, so that by the time he enters the ground 48
or 49 overs would have been bowled.

IDEA NO:10: I.C.C Should warn Pakistan Bowlers that hereafter any bowler
taking Dada's wicket, the number will not be added to the bowler's tally
of wickets.

IDEA NO:11: Bowlers should not appeal for dismissal of Ganguly. Even a
small appeal (not necessarily loud appealing or excessive appealing)
will lead to match refereee Chris Broad suspending the bowler for the
rest of the series.

IDEA NO:12: Fast Bowlers should only throw the ball and slow bowlers
should use underarm throw.

IDEA NO:13: Even after this if Ganguly gets out, the bowler will be
called a chucker and new rule for bowling action, i.e.( 2 degrees
bending of bowling arm allowed for fast bowlers and 3 degrees bending of
bowling arm for slow
bowlers) will be taken into account and the bowler will be immediately
sent to Australia by next flight for corrective action.

IDEA NO:14: No fielder should catch the ball hit by Dada. If they catch,
then any of the opening batsman who got out earlier, like virender
shewag will be allowed to bat for second time.

IDEA NO: 15: For every minute Dada stays in the middle, one run will be
added to his score and if the ball hits the bat and travels to the
following places, runs will be credited to Dada as follows.
Slip,Gully,Forward Short Leg: 1 run
Mid on,mid off, cover,point: 2 runs
long on,long off,fine leg,third man: 3 runs.

and finally if Dada's wicket is taken before he reaches 50 runs all
pakis will be fined 50% of their match fees

Other thread is more in general discussion of the issue.
This is more specific to the prediction of the result after todays BCCI�s meeting in Mumbai.

When DO'M says use the other thread he means use the other thread, as in the thread on this topic that is not this thread on this topic.
