Sunil Gavaskar joins Kumble, slams BCCI

After Anil Kumble, it was Sunil Gavaskar's turn on Tuesday to slam the BCCI. Gavaskar was upset after the BCCI working committee rejected his long-pending demand of $1 million (Rs 5crore) as fee for services rendered to the IPL governing council.

After Anil Kumble, it was Sunil Gavaskar's turn on Tuesday to slam the BCCI. Kumble resigned as the chairman of the National Cricket Academy on Monday after his proposal to have a software programme to monitor players' injuries was shot down by other NCA board members.

Gavaskar was upset after the BCCI working committee rejected his long-pending demand of $1 million (Rs 5crore) as fee for services rendered to the IPL governing council.

"BCCI has made a U-turn on my contract. I am baffled after reading reports that it has refused to pay my dues. My faith in BCCI has been shaken," the former Indian skipper told a TV channel.

"Sharad Pawar and Arun Jaitley both promised me on the phone that my dues would be cleared. In fact, Pawar and Lalit Modi had promised me a Rs 4-crore IPL contract in 2007."

Gavaskar also backed Kumble's NCA proposal.

"Injury management has been a major concern for the Indian team and when he (Kumble) came up with a suggestion, even if you don't agree with it 100%, you had to look at it," he said.
