  • WHy only the BCCI president,why not the entire board be reconstituted. I suggest the ex-cricketers, must protest saying that they will stop their allegiance to BCCI, in case the issues with cricket are not resolved in a time bound manner? Why is earning more and more money important for the ex-crop of cricketers Asked by: Narayan
  • Kishore Bhimani greed is part of human nature. Former players don't want to fall foul of the Board. Nothing in India happens in a time-bound manner

  • Kishore Bhimani No; simply becasue there is too much power and too much money there.
  • why srinivasan alone, and why not the entire BCCI. What were they doing when all these wrongdoings were being committed. How can Rajiv Shukla remain a minister, when in one of the organisation which he chairs is murky. Asked by: SE
  • Kishore Bhimani It is wishful thinking. They will never relinquish power. If one man amidst so much guild does not do so, why should others? Ministers have been rebuked by Manmohan Singh
