No communication gap between myself and Jagmohan Dalmiya: Anurag Thakur
BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur on Saturday sought to play down the health issues of president Jagmohan Dalmiya stating that rumours of communication gap between him and the veteran administrator is a figment of imagination.
Kolkata: BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur on Saturday sought to play down the health issues of president Jagmohan Dalmiya stating that rumours of communication gap between him and the veteran administrator is a figment of imagination.
It was reported that the Supreme Court-appointed committee headed by former Chief Justice RM Lodha felt Dalmiya was not physically well to run the board as Thakur has been calling the shots.
Scotching the rumours, Thakur said: "From Day 1, we (him and Dalmiya) have been working very well. We have brought transparency and accountability. After every selection committee meeting, we have been interacting with the media. After every meeting, there has been a co-ordination and a press statement is issued."
Thakur also reiterated that ICC was yet to send any report on spot-fixing allegations on three International cricketers who were accused of accepting bribes from a businessman by Lalit Modi, the former IPL commissioner.
Modi had shared a letter via twitter on Saturday which stated that the CSK duo, along with West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo, have received favours in cash and kind from a real estate tycoon called Baba Diwan.
However Raina had subsequently issued a statement making his intentions clear of filing a legal suit against tainted former IPL commissioner.
"We have already made it clear after the selection committee meeting in Mumbai that he (Modi) has got some information from some source and he had alerted this to the ICC. ICC under its jurisdiction may have conducted an inquiry and they have not yet come out with any formal report or informed BCCI on that," the BJP MP, who is here for a youth programme said.
On the appointment of a successor to Duncan Fletcher he said; "As of now cricket advisory committee is looking into this. If any name is picked, that will be shared by the cricket advisory committee."
