State Govt must take the game to the next level: Thakur

State Govt must take the game to the next level: Thakur
‘We at (HPCA and BCCI) have brought international cricket to Dharamsala despite various hurdles. Till date there no five-star accommodation and lack of sufficient commercial flights and rail network are hindering the growth of sport in the region. It is time for the government to take the game to the next level,’ Thakur told PTI on Wednesday.

‘Unfortunately there are people who don’t see cricket’s tremendous role in the developing the place,’ he added.

Both India and West Indies teams will be arriving here in chartered flights on Thursday for the second ever ODI at the HPCA (Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association) Stadium on Friday.

Thakur is already fighting a legal battle for HPCA against the state for alleged land violations. To add to the troubles, Himachal Pradesh high court on Tuesday issued notices to the state association, BCCI and King XI Punjab over not paying for security for IPL matches in the city since 2010. The three parties have time to reply to the court till December 9.

‘We will file our reply in court,’ said Thakur when asked about his next step.
