Former BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale expressed his anguish over the admissions made by Raj Kundra. "It is unfortunate and this will further shake the faith of the fans in the sport. BCCI should give top priority to remedial measures as early as possible," said Jagdale.
"Betting is wrong, (especially) when someone owns a team. It’s just another instance of damaging the faith Indian cricket-lovers have in the sport." He defended India captain MS Dhoni saying: "Dhoni is a part of the selection panel, but he doesn’t have any voting rights. He can just suggest names only."
