Railway minister and Bihar Cricket Association President Lalu Prasad on Saturday advised the warring officials of the BCCI and the rebel Indian Cricket League to organise competitive tournaments between their teams in the interest of the game in the country.

"Both BCCI and the ICL should organise competitive tournaments pitting their teams against each others to improve the skills of the cricketers," Prasad told reporters at Sarnath near Varanasi in reply to a question.

Prasad also suggested that the best cricketers irrespective of whether they played for the BCCI or ICL should represent the country.

On his reported consent to the ICL for using the Railways stadiums for the League matches, he said the Railway authorities had no problem in renting its stadium to any organiser if it paid the fees for utilising sports facilities.
