Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) secretary Ajay Shirke has said that Lodha committee secretary Gopal Sankaranarayanan accused selectors of taking sexual favours.
New Delhi: Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) secretary Ajay Shirke has said that Lodha committee secretary Gopal Sankaranarayanan accused selectors of taking sexual favours.
Sankaranarayanan is said to have made those comments in the recently concluded meeting on August 8.
According to The Indian Express, Shirke revealed this in a mail sent to BCCI president Anurag Thakur, who could not attend the meeting.
The report added that as the meeting came towards its end, Sankaranarayanan told Justice Lodha and his two colleagues that he had something to say.
“The Secretary then started to address me and stated that there was large apathy in the BCCI and spoke of the shocking manner that BCCI conducts its affairs and activities and he stated that the BCCI has been a mute spectator to what he said were corrupt practices rampantly prevalent in the BCCI,” writes Shirke. Sankaranarayanan, according to the BCCI secretary, then went on to level the accusations about selectors asking for sexual favours from parents.
In his letter to Thakur, Shirke said that he slammed those allegations as there neither was no such complaint ever received by the Indian board and nor did Mr. Shankarnarayanan produce any such complaint.
