County players not allowed to practice in India


Interesting to see this piece saying that the BCCI don't want County players practicing in India.   At first glance it seems very over-controlling but we do always have the debate every Ashes summer in England about whether Australian batsmen should be allowed to play for Counties in the early season to get used to conditions.
India's loss of tourism/income will be Sri Lanka's gain by the sounds of it, as Yorkshire are going there instead.   The BCCI won't worry about that as they're rolling in cash (and I assume it wouldn't be their income anyway, although I wouldn't put it past them to charge hotels etc commission on international cricket team visits), but they may might have slightly less to roll in when the Indian tax authorities catch up with them.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a
blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% sure.
Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
