Reiterating its stand on the contentious Sports Bill, the BCCI on Thursday said that until and unless its reservations were adressed by the sports ministry, the Bill will not acceptable even in the revised form.

BCCI member and IPL governing council chairman, Rajeev Shukla, made it clear that the Board had rejected the Bill at its working committee meeting in Kolkata on October 29, and had shot off a letter to the ministry, conveying their reservations on various aspects of the controversial Bill.

“Now it is upto the Cabinet to take a decision on the Sports Bill,” Shukla said on the matter.

Asked whether the BCCI was shying away from accountability by opposing the Bill, Shukla said, “As far as accountability is concerned, BCCI has always mantained its accountability.”
