BCCI President N. Srinivasan Says Stronger BCCI Will Be Good For Cricket
Published February 7, 2014
Board of Control for Cricket in India President N. Srinivasan said that "a strong India would be good for world cricket" as he defended the proposed structural revamp of the Int'l Cricket Council under which the Indian Board would get a substantial control of the world body’s functioning, according to the PTI. Justifying the proposal, which is being opposed by a section of the ICC including South Africa, Srinivasan said that "the fears of India getting disproportionate control of the game are unfounded." Srinivasan: “The BCCI is quite happy to be involved with the leadership of cricket. We will embrace this ICC in the new structure, which will be good for cricket as a whole. A strong India with a vibrant commercial structure is good for world cricket." Srinivasan said that the previous Members Participation Agreement on revenue-sharing "was unfair to India but he did not specify how" (PTI, 2/5).
