India Sports Minister Invites Comments On Draft Of National Sports Development Bill
Published July 23, 2013
RELATIONSHIP ISSUES: The AP reported former Int'l Cricket Council CEO Haroon Lorgat said on Monday he was "saddened" by what he called his "poor relationship" with India's board, a situation that led to the "powerful" Board of Control for Cricket in India even expressing its opposition to him leading South African cricket. The South African said that "he was still not completely sure what the BCCI's problems with him were, but he wanted to smooth them over." He said that an ICC ethics officer "had cleared him of any wrongdoing relating to working outside his remit at the world body," but did not elaborate further. Lorgat said, "I will do my level best to understand what the issues are with those who are not happy. If I need to sit across the table, go to India, whatever it takes" (AP, 7/22).
