Ruling out any chances whatsoever of an Indo-Pak series in December, senior Indian cricket official Rajiv Shukla has said he would like to see both countries resume cricketing ties but only after Pakistan have resolved "some issues and reservations" of the BCCI.
Reacting to Shaharyar Khan's recent statement of boycotting India in ICC tournaments if they refused to play the proposed series against Pakistan in December, IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla on Saturday said PCB will have to bear the brunt in that case.
A host of top functionaries of the Indian cricket board, ICC chairman N. Srinivasan, players and others paid their homage to Jagmohan Dalmiya, the well known cricket administrator and the board president, whose body was kept at the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) on Monday.
With Jagmohan Dalmiya's death leaving a vacuum at the top in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla said on Monday that the board will appoint an interim president if its constitution permits.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is keen to retain the two suspended Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals under new management for the duration of the two-year ban, according to a report.
The working group, formed to study the Justice Lodha panel's verdict relating to the IPL 2013 corruption scandal, has "compiled suggestions from all stakeholders" and will submit its final report to the BCCI's working committee before it meets in Kolkata on August 28.
Amid speculations of Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy joining Congress, senior Congress leader Rajiv Shukla said the doors of the party are open for everybody and they will look into organisational skills while inducting someone into its fold.
