If nothing else, BCCI will be well window-dressed a la Satyam, packaged
but not sold! Any other country, Satyam would have met the same fate as
Enron with all scoundrels n prison. Here everyone still alive is out on
bail. The money just vanished in thin air and the company to Mahindras.
Well done! The nation is proud of the Houdini act. Same is expected from
BCCI and IPL; we want CSK, Srini and Meyyappan be declared the most
ethical organizations individuals...over to you Gavaskar and Parikh

Gavaskar one of the Cricket world's Joker. He the one who said Sri Lanka can't play test cricket. Very same year Sri Lanka Team Scored world's highest Test Total (world record) against India.

Heartening to note that Mr Deepak Parekh of HDFC group will assist Mr Gavasakar all of them capable and very transparent people with excellent Professional credentials
possibly if Mr NRN Chairman of Infy is included it would be great good for BCCI as people may not be aware of the fact that NRN was an ardent fan of cricket and is a long time friend of the legendary spin hero Bagawath Chandrasekar who played Test cricket
