You are free to criticise the BCCI?That's what I'm saying - listen to me, read what I write. I'm not muzzled. I write and say what I feel. My contract with the BCCI, which came about last year, has nothing to do with the views I express as a columnist and commentator.
You say there's a conflict of interest inherent in every sphere of life, for everyone. Is it unfair for more mortal, corruptible commoners to hold role models like you to a higher standard of ethics or behaviour?No, I wouldn't say it's unfair. It's something that people would expect of someone whom they hold in esteem. But they have got to remember that achievers, like them, also have two eyes, two hands - and a stomach (to feed)!
