Inquiry against Gavaskar, Sachin ruled out

The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Tuesday ruled out initiating an inquiry against former India captains Sunil Gavaskar and Sachin Tendulkar following remarks by Mohammad Azharuddin that the two were not "investigated properly".

BCCI president A C Muthiah said since there is no mention of Azharuddin's remarks in the CBI report, and no official complaint has been made to the BCCI against Gavaskar and Tendulkar, there is no reason to hold an inquiry.

"Not at the moment. There is nothing at the moment. It is not in the CBI report. There were no complaints officially made to us. I don't think we will make such an inquiry now," he said.

Azharuddin had in a recent interview to Outlook magazine said cricketers from Bombay have been able to get away with wrongdoing without being 'investigated properly'.

"Nobody talks of the Rs 70 lakh in cash found in Gavaskar's gymkhana locker," Azharuddin had said.

He also denied allegations that he did not give his 100 per cent under Tendulkar's captaincy.
