following the world cup debacle,BCCI has imposed new restrictions on the players.It includes curbing of ads and endorsements of the players Each player has to table the endorsements and ads he is about to uptake and with prior permission only he can uptake it.will this make a huge difference ?Yes i believe it will make notable difference,as the no: endorsements are regulated. what do you think??

This is a punitive knee jerk reaction of BCCI. Money from endorsements are a great motivator. I am sure the players know that better performance equals more income. Why should they underperform ? As Chapell says they are applying band aid for Cancer. Just compare the physique of our bowlers versus the Aussies. Indian guys look starved an weak. The first thing that BCCI should do is improve the physique of under 19 players, so that they are strong enough to hit a six when they come into the A team.

Ha ha. What do you say about Ponting, who is as thin as the Indian players but has more fire in the belly- can hit 10 times more than Dravid or company. But yes, it is right for bowlers. If you and I were sitting and selecting a healthy team, we will select Powar first, isn't it and then may be migrate Liverrock from bermuda may be... Ha ha ha. :). Just kidding. But your point is good- physique
