BCCI unlikely to discuss bookie issue
The BCCI is unlikely to act on the ICC’s letter to its president Jagmohan Dalmiya in which it is alleged that BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur was photographed with a suspected bookie during a function in Chandigarh. Media reports on Sunday claimed that BCCI was sent a letter by the ICC about Thakur being seen with an alleged bookie Karan Gilhotra but Thakur has not made any comments on the controversial issue.
“Everyone knows who runs the ICC. Since skeletons of N Srinivasan run administration are tumbling out of the closet, the former president is trying to malign Thakur’s image. There was absolutely no discussion at the working committee meeting and informally we all agree that Srinivasan is behind all this,” said a WC member.
When asked if Dalmiya will act on this ICC letter, the source emphatically denied any such move. “Dalmiya and Thakur share a nice working relationship as they together ousted Srinivasan from his hot seat. Also we find it weird that just after CSK low price demerger was questioned, ICC came up with this letter,” he added.
