BCCI SPLIT ON BILL: In Mumbai, Vijay Tagore reported the BCCI finance committee, which met in New Delhi on Wednesday, "was divided over sanctioning a small claim" of Sunil Gavaskar, the Supreme Court-appointed interim president of the BCCI/IPL. It "required the intervention" of interim BCCI President Shivlal Yadav "to finally clear it." For a board whose worth runs into billions of dollars, $12,000 "should be pocket change but its members made a mountain out of a molehill of a claim." Gavaskar submitted a bill of $12,000 "for his expenditure during the UAE leg of the IPL and it did not amuse too many BCCI members." The matter "was put up before the finance committee and the members wanted it rejected outright." It was contended that since the interim IPL president was entitled for a fee, as suggested by the apex court, the claim "should not be sanctioned." However, Yadav "vetoed the opposition." He "warned the members of the possible consequences, given that the claim has come from a person appointed by the apex court of the country" (MUMBAI MIRROR, 6/6).
