BCCI is scared of ICL: Bedi

In an ultimatum to Kapil Dev [Images] and others who have, or wish to, join the ICL, the BCCI on Wednesday made it loud and clear: 'If you are not with us, you are against us'.

In a meeting at the BCCI president Sharad Pawar's [Images] residence in New Delhi, the Board sought to uphold an individual's right to choose but with a rider: choose between us or them.

''It is every individual's right to decide whether he wishes to associate with the BCCI or any other organisatison,'' said BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla, reading out a statement after the meeting.

''However, if he associates himself with any other organisation, he will not be able to derive any benefits from the BCCI or be associated with any of its activities,'' he added.

He refused to directly comment on the fate of NCA chief Kapil Dev, who is also the chairman of the ICL Executive Board, saying that his fate would be decided in its meeting on August 21 in Mumbai.
