Kapil hits out at BCCI ‘insult’ to cricket

Legendary India all-rounder Kapil Dev on Tuesday blasted India’s beleaguered cricket board for “insulting” the national team and players.

With the Supreme Court set to resume hearings into the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India’s tangled affairs on Wednesday, the former India captain hit out at new chairman-elect, Mr Ranbir Singh Mahendra.

The BCCI chief argued last week that Indian Test and one-day teams play for the Board and not the country. “He’s utterly and totally wrong... a disgrace. It’s an insult. Twenty years of service going down the drain.”

Kapil, 45, retired a hero in 1994 with the then world record tally of 434 wickets in 131 Tests and 5,248 runs. “We played for India. We played under the Indian flag,” he said. “It’s very emotional.I represented my country, not some board.”
