He has appeared in his first media conference after going down the line for the responsibility of the president’s post of the BCCI in Abu Dhabi. “After the final on June 2, I want folks to bear in mind the IPL for the attributes of the competition and nothing else. I am truly humbled at the Indian Supreme Court’s edict to put me on the post and I want the event to be as controversial free as attainable.
The BCCI and its just ousted questionable head N Srinivasan, grappled with the vengeances of the Supreme Court recently.
The Court also ordered the two franchise sides Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals that they have to opt out all the players, officials and members who got involved in the match fixing and betting outrage and got under arrest later.
Being taken by the media if the two sides should have been permitted to take part in the competition, Gavaskar gave a straightforward response, reminding his batting style, “It’s the decision of the Supreme Court and we comply with it.”
The Indian Cricket Community has maintained a love and hate relationship with the UAE always. Whereas, the UAE has vouched for many Indian victories, there always have been genuine involvements over the mien of the ‘criminals’ and ‘anti-socials’ in Sharjah. The metropolis has always been a radial point of match-fixing, to be précised.
Gavaskar, though, does not desire to be worried much about it, he said, “The local police and International Cricket Council authorities have secured their cooperation.”
For the moment he merely wants to pour the attention along the state of the pulpits of the three World-class stadiums in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai that are going to wine and dine the first peg of the cash-rich IPL 7 between April 16 and 30.
“I have emphasized the demand of good wickets in all three venues as it’s the prerequisite for a good contest.” Sunny said.
“Let’s hope the IPL 2014 can function as a springboard for the future editions.” He signed off.
