Need to professionalize BCB. Need to hire a CEO with real world experience who will be given total freedom of day to day operation without MK poking at every issue and micro managing. Sometimes better to higher a foreign sports administrator than a local one. For example one of our former CEO's the Zimbabwean Macky Dudhia was a very tough, no nonsense character. No one could mess with him. I know someone who worked at BCB who told me the guy tried to root out corruption and run BCB like a full fledged corporation. Someone like that would never allow Pybus to take advantage how he did.

Of course easier said that done. A fish rots from its head. Would our supremes ever allow the CEO to function without interfering in everything. Would they even give a damn to what a specialist would suggest.

Recently Sri Lanka has appointed former ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat as a consultant to Sri Lanka cricket. He is going to play a role in professionalizing Sri Lanka Cricket, revamping domestic cricket etc. Their chiefs here are willing to listen and develop the game.
