cricket board expels its former president Dalmiya
Kolkata, November 29, 2005
The new Indian Cricket Board President
Sharad Pawar on Tuesday promised to look into the issue of introducing
changes in the BCCI's election process and said he would give top most
priority to adopting a professional approach and bringing about transparency
and harmony in the functioning of the organisation.
"The time has now come to go into details. The election observer T S Krishnamurthy has shown the way by introducing some new things. We hope to finalise rules of the election during this tenure," Pawar said, replying to queries from scribes at the crowded media meet.
Asked whether he would vote for himself as President in future BCCI elections, Pawar said "If time comes where I have to vote for myself, I will keep away".
On the issue of introducing transparency, Pawar said the BCCI was a major organsation and people in India and abroad were anxious to know about the Board.
Pawar announced that the Board would set up a media committee, which would be in addition to the system of appointing a media officer for the national team.
"We deal with public at large, media and sponsors. It is our responsibility to keep very good relation with this cross section... It is high time we take a professional approach in day to day running of the Board."
Pawar downplayed the 'finger controversy' surrounding coach Greg Chappell but said the Board would look into the case to find out the truth before closing the chapter.
"I hate such things. But there is some discussion over the issue here and there. I don't want to give importance to it," Pawar said when asked to comment on the alleged indecent finger gesture made by Chappell towards cricket fans in Kolkata during the fourth one-day international against South Africa.
Pawar, however, said the Board would go into the case to find out the truth. "These are subjects where one has to take corrective action and close the chapter," he said.
Fair treatment to Ganguly
The newly elected president hailed the all-round contribution of Sourav Ganguly to Indian cricket and assured that the former skipper will be treated fairly by the national selection committee.
"There is a selection committee and it will definitely apply its mind for Ganguly and others," Pawar said when asked if he considered the left-hander's international cricketing carrier to be almost over.
Pawar said he would take help from all his predecessors, including Jagmohan Dalmiya, in the running of the board.
"The ex-presidents of BCCI have all run the board efficiently, be it (Raj Sing) Dungarpur, I S Bindra, Dalmiya or R S Mahendra. I'll seek their help and guidance to carry out my job," Pawar said in his maiden press meet.
On Kolkata crowd:
The Union Agriculture Minister also chose to dilute the issue of the crowd's 'anti-India stand' at the Eden Gardens following non-inclusion of Sourav Ganguly in the team.
"I met the Indian team in Mumbai. Nobody told me (anything on the crowd behaviour). My personal view of the Kolkata crowd is that they are very sporting and supportive. These are small things that happen here and there. Not much importance should be given to it," he said.
