          There seems to be a six-a-side international tournament going on
in Hyderabad, with Ind, SL, SA, Aus etc participating. Why isn't someone
posting some news of it?

        It is a 5 (yes, five!) overs par side, eight balls an over game.
In the Ind-SL match, SL batted frist, and were 51 after 2 overs. Scored
91 or 92 ultimately. India won, with Jadeja scoring at least half the runs.

  Yeah, there were regular match reports in the local newspapers
  (btw, I'm in Bangalore). I did not find it worthy to read about the
  matches...For someone who finds OD cricket itself a slight (IMO..IMO)
  to real cricket, six-a-side should be real pits...
  Btw, I heard it was a very badly conducted tourney - facilities fro
  newsmen, score-boards wise..infact it was reported the Sri Lanka lost
  to India because there was an error in the score board. It was
  showing that SL needed six runs to win when actually a couple was
  required. The batsman went for heave and got out...

  Btw, in one of the Hindu's saturday sport special, there is this
  score-board of the match where Sobers hit 365 and a comparison of
  Sobers' Vs Lara's innings...If there is sufficient interest I would
  post it...

  Ciao,
