Former IPL boss , Lalit Modi, is banned by BCCI for life for financial irregularities. In its Special General Meeting the Board discussed a report filed by its disciplinary committee and decided to impose the ban. Modi has although declared that this ban is not the end and that he will have the last laugh in the entire issue!
Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina have apologized to the BCCI for their on-field spat during the ongoing tri-series match against the West Indies.A debate on the lack of harmony in the Indian dressing room has been buzzing around since this incident was captured on cameras.
While there was news about Sachin willing to play the upcoming series with Pakistan,a sudden announcement made thereafter by the Batting Legend about his retirement from One-Day Cricket is shocking for both the set of people who argue in favour of Sachin playing till he wants and the ones who always felt its high time he quits.
Seems like ‘God’ has lost to the continuous bad patch and ageing issues, while playing, or is it the B.C.C.I. which has asked Master Blaster,Sachin Tendulkar,to declare his retirement, at least, from One-Day Cricket due to his and also Team India’s continuous deteriorating performance ?
Azharuddin,Kapil Dev and Kirti Azad miss out on BCCI’s one-time payment scheme to former Indian cricketers !
Mohammad Azharuddin,former Indian Captain was banned for life in 2000 for match-fixing and hence is out of list of BCCI’s one-time payment scheme. With Kapil Dev, the former Indian captain who enabled India win the first World Cup in 1983 , was also removed out of the list as he refused accept the amnesty offered by BCCI following his involvement in now-defunct Indian Cricket League which had nothing to do with BCCI.Kirti Azad who held protests at Feroze Shah Kotla ground against alleged financial irregularities in BCCI supported IPL(Indian Premiere League) is also excluded out of the list.
