Default BCCI: It doesn't Concern us

MUMBAI: Even as ICL was announcing its grand coup of signing 14 international Bangladesh players, most coming for a whopping price tag of $200,000, the Indian cricket board chose to cast a Nelson's eye on the development.

"It doesn't concern the BCCI," said a senior official late on Tuesday night.
Quite interestingly, at the same time, the Indian Premier League's (IPL) top officials were engaged in a marathon meeting in Mumbai. That meeting, however, had nothing to do with its rival's ambitious move.

The IPL thinktank, though, would have surely spent at least some time discussing the Bangla crisis.
Rajiv Shukla, vice-president of BCCI and a member of the IPL board played down the exodus into the ICL fold. "It's an internal matter of Bangladesh cricket board and doesn't concern the BCCI. It is for them to study the situation and to act accordingly," he said.

BCCI CAO Ratnakar Shetty too refused to comment on the matter, saying, "It has got nothing to do with BCCI."
12.6 Syed Rasel to Sangakkara, OUT: What a delivery, completely fooled Sangakkara, first five delivery were the outswingers and now, this one comes in sharply, Sangakkara tries to left it and ball hits the off stump, top class bowling!
