India can do well under MS Dhoni at World Cup: Michael Holding

MS Dhoni with Virat Kohli, shakes hand with spiritual leader Dalai Lama before the start of the 4th One Day International match between India and West Indies (Source: PTI) Legendary West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding feels Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not “innovative and proactive enough as captain, especially in Tests” although India would remain a strong contender to retain their World Cup title in Australia next year. Holding believes that captaining the Indian ODI team is “not a difficult task”. India have earned many laurels during Dhoni’s captaincy but of late he has copped a lot of criticism, mainly for his leadership in the longest format. “I don’t think ODI captaincy is a problem (with Dhoni) but the longer form of the game is. I don’t think he is innovative and proactive enough in the longer form of the game. But captaining in ODIs it is not too difficult. Therefore India can do well under him at the World Cup,” Holding told PTI in an interview. Holding feels that there are a lot of modern-day players, who ignore Test cricket for extending their ODI and T20 career. Holding feels choosing between Test and limited overs cricket is not a tough choice for the current crop of cricketers. “Why only him (Dhoni), a lot of cricketers prefer playing limited overs cricket,” said...  

Indexology®: The Great Barrier To Commodities Down Under

This week I am in Australia meeting with investors about commodities.  Usually when I visit a heavy natural resource producing country, the conversations flow easily since the locals understand commodities.  We have been discussing farms, coal, iron ore and tin – subjects that engulf the culture of the locals.  The Australians seem to know all about the public companies and private deals and are comfortable about the commodity exposure in their portfolio via their stock market, the S&P ASX 200.  You can see in the chart below that 16.4% of the Australian stock market is in Materials and 6.5% is in Energy. Given this profile, many Australian investors dismiss commodities as an asset class since they feel they already have exposure through equities.  Although the local commodities consist mainly of dry bulks like coal and iron ore that are not yet part of the global futures markets that make up the asset class, there is a great barrier to overcome the perception that the Australian stock market is highly correlated to global commodities. In order to test the potential benefits of commodities to Australian investors, we evaluated diversification and inflation protection, the benefits many international and domestic US investors realize.  The results were different than what I expected. First, the correlations of commodities to two major stocks BHP and RIO were only 0.16 and 0.18, respectively. That i...

Do Juventus now need to limit the role of Andrea Pirlo in order to reverse ...

It feels like sacrilege to put this on paper. It feels sacrilegious even thinking it. So lets qualify things first off. Andrea Pirlo is one of those players who make the game beautiful to watch, and give it the global appeal it holds today. He is also one of the most influential players of the last 20 years. In the same way that Claude Makalele helped define the defensive midfield role into a tool of brutal efficiency, Pirlo showed the beauty in using the position as a deep lying orchestrator, spraying passes around the field with incredible accuracy. Add to this exquisite close control, and being the best exponent of a dead ball since Juninho, and you were never going to have an ordinary player. He will rightly be forever locked in comparison with Paul Scholes and Xavi as the best midfielders of their time (Zidane retired in 2006 before anyone gets started). And when the Italian finally hangs up his boots, he will be able to look back on (to date) winners’ medals from five Scudettos, two Champions Leagues and a World Cup, as well as numerous personal accolades. But, here we come to the hard part: it’s time for Juve to move on. This is not to say that they should dispense with midfielder’s services completely, but time waits for no man, not even Pirlo, and if Juventus wish to continue the journey they began after the ‘Calciopoli’ scandal, and which they hope will end with them crowned kings of Europe, then it might be time to start li...

AMC-BBC America deal could be a boon for BBC World News

Thursday evening, AMC Networks announced that it had acquired a 49.9% stake in BBC America for $200 million, and would assume operational control of the channel. AMC will report BBC America's earnings in its reports, though the channel will still conform to the BBC's editorial standards and policies.The deal brought with it a number of other elements, including the two companies working together on content investment opportunities, but also seeing AMC represent the BBC World News channel "in U.S. distribution and domestic advertising sales."Put another way, AMC will now be responsible for getting BBC World News distribution on pay-TV services in the U.S., and with selling its advertising inventory here.For the cable news channel, that could not be better news. While BBC World News is a global powerhouse, available in 350 million homes worldwide it is only in 30 million homes in the U.S., a tiny number compared to other cable news channels. Now that AMC will be responsible for distributing it, it can be bundled alongside channels like AMC and IFC, as well as BBC America, in carriage negotiations. Likewise, advertisers for some shows on Sundance Channel or AMC can now buy into the quality news programming of BBC World News as part of the same package or deal. While many pay-TV operators are cutting back on smaller channels, there has been a move to add more independent cable news channels in recent years, as MSNBC and Fox News pick up more partisan audiences, and C...
