The situation that the Board of Control for Cricket in India BCCI) finds itself in at the moment is that of a pilot, who has never entered a cockpit and has been given a fighter plane.
The way the BCCI is working doesn’t astonish me anymore. So I wasn’t surprised that the Board decided to send show cause notices to Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.
Also, Raj Kundra being suspended, pending inquiry was another step taken on the expected lines. If you ask me, I would rechristen the BCCI as Brothers in Corruption for Cricket in India.
Coming to Kundra, doesn’t the IPL regulations state that if an owner of any team — minority or majority stake holder — is caught indulging in unfair practices, the team would be immediately barred from future participation? So why just a suspension for Kundra? Is the BCCI now a government organisation? It appalls me to see how these ‘ babus’ are running the game.
The first thing that has come to the forefront in the past few weeks is that these people are least interested in cricket.
When their coffers are being filled without any hard work, and they are getting the required publicity, why should they bother about the game? When these Board members are not even interested to follow its own constitution, how do you expect them to follow the laws of the land? Jagmohan Dalmiya is a senior man and has been a master administrator, but the others will not even let him clean up the game. They are hell bent on ruining the game.
Every rule is manipulated in the BCCI according to the senior members’ whims and fancies.
And, until that change, the true cricket lovers in the country will keep suffering.
Finally, Board reaches out to fans to clean the mess
