What in the world does this mean? And for heavens sake why? Wouldn't it be more sensible to find a better date for the two teams to agree upon? Or is the bigger picture (i.e. conflicting schedules) unknown to us? Looking at the schedules of the two teams, we can see that both teams have no commitments between April and September of next year. So whats the point of the ICC's Test Championship or would the ICC step in?

Update: The BCCI has since denied this report, but Wisden's Steve Lynch makes an interesting point at the end of the article that I originally linked to (which was probably added much after I posted, since it was not there last night). If England can be threatened with fines and censure and forced to tour Zimbabwe, how on the earth did India escape after their "the players are too tired" ruse to shy away from the Bangladesh tour!
