New Delhi:

Photographs of them mingling with models and celebrities have led many to dub Indian cricketers the country s 24-Hour-Party-People. That s over.

First, the Indian Premier League (IPL) said it s ending the post-match parties that the league had become notorious for. Now, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has said it s lights out at 9.30 pm for the Indian team playing the T20 World Cup in West Indies. Anyone who misses the curfew has to pay 100 dollars.

Skipping practice sessions or arriving late for physical training will set players back by another 100 dollars. On the plus side, the daily allowance for each team member has been raised from 75 to 100 dollars.

Gifts from strangers have to be turned down. The lucky few who are offered presents need to report details to the team management that will investigate the background of the generous sponsor.

Sticking to the official diet is also mandatory.

So any celebrations will be hard-earned. Go Team!
