Cricket Australia insists it will not take any steps to prevent West Indian batsman Chris Gayle playing in its Big Bash Twenty20 league next season. In what appears to be a reversal of position, chief executive James Sutherland is adamant Cricket Australia will not involve itself in a recruitment issue unless it involved a player implicated in match-fixing.Gayles tenure with the Melbourne Renegades in last years BBL was tainted when he made what was interpreted as a sexist comment to a female television reporter. Gayle was fined $10,000 for the comments which Sutherland described as completely inappropriate and bordering on harassment.On Saturday, Sutherland said it was not Cricket Australias role to exclude players from the Big Bash League. Chris Gayle is interviewed by reporter Mel Mclaughlin Sutherland said: No matter what anyone at Cricket Australia thought at management level, board level, I think youre on a slippery slope if you start making judgments on players who could or shouldnt be playing in the Big Bash League or in our domestic competitions. Because, when does that ever end?My view is unless theres a very, very strong reason along the lines of anti-corruption, then its difficult for us to be making those judgments.Im not saying that it wouldnt happen but my judgment is that its not appropriate. Its about the teams themselves to make the calls. Also See: County Championship Div One table County Championship Div Two table Domestic fixtures/results Get Surrey tickets!

At least one person wants to make open-wheel racing doubleheaders an annual tradition in the Motor City. Detroit Grand Prix chairman Bud Denker hopes IndyCar gives him the green light to market another two-race event in 2014. "The series needs it, we want it," Denker said. "And even if theres only one next year, Ill take it and I want it every year." IndyCar plans to also have doubleheaders this year in Toronto and Houston, but hasnt announced next years schedule. "We also need to change some of rules of this sport to get this sport back to where it needs to be," Denker said. "This is one great game-changer." Denker said nearly 100,000 people made it to Belle Isle -- slightly more than in 2012 -- during the three-day event. Denker was thrilled when he heard on Monday that overnight TV ratings for the two races more than doubled the audience from last years race: The overnight rating from big cities was 0.8 on Sunday and 0.7 on Saturday. A ratings point represents 1,147,000 households, or 1 per cent of the nations homes with TVs. Simon Pagenaud and Mike Conway won the races on an improved track that held up much better than it did the year before, when pot holes and grooves spoiled the show. Denker said he spent more than an hour apologizing to fans as they left the track area last year, and went to the same place Sunday to thank them for coming. "Weve come a long way in one year," Denker said. To make next years event better on and off the track, plans are being made to re-pave the bumpy backkstretch and straighten out the circuit between Turns 6 and 7 to create another area for passing.dddddddddddd Some chalets and grandstands may also be added to take advantage of the best views. Roger Penskes Michigan-based company and Chevrolet pumped nearly $2 million into the 2.36 mile street course, which was reconfigured with a half-mile straightaway that led to some three-wide racing. "Weve had some parades in the past, but we wont anymore," Denker said. Denker and his staff, though, hope they will have an IndyCar doubleheader to promote for the next years event that is expected to follow the Indianapolis 500 as it did this year. Detroit Grand Prix general manager Charles Burns said the two-race setup allows sponsors entertain clients in part of a 15,000-square foot, double-decker chalet previously used at the London Olympics. "Its expensive, but it adds a special touch when you can build relationships with 75 people on Saturday and perhaps 75 different people on Sunday during IndyCar races," Burns said, looking down on the track from the second floor of one of the chalets. While executives from Deloitte, Quicken Loans and Cadillac entertained from the best vantage point on Belle Isle, the Scott Fountain shot water into the air with the Renaissance Center, headquarters of General Motors Co., off in the distance down the Detroit River. Detroit is often cast in a poor light, in part because it is an estimated $14 billion in debt and has a state-appointed emergency manager, but TV viewers across the world saw spectacular aerial views during the races that Denker deems priceless. "I got texts from people in London and Germany, Is that really Detroit?" Denker recalled. "How do you put on a value on that?" ' ' '
