Cricket in New York

India and Australia are planning a one-day series to be played in New York. More at Cricinfo.

News.com reported that Cricket Australia operations manager Michael Brown confirmed last night that Australia had been approached by India for the series, though the details remained to be worked out. “You never say never but details at this stage are sketchy,” Brown said.

Two possible stumbling blocks in the negotiations could be Australia’s tour programme and wrangling over the percentage of revenues to be shared between the rival boards, with Australia reportedly demanding an equal share and the Indians demurring.

What would New Yorkers make of it, I wonder?
