What do you think about the BCCI rulings?

April 09, 2007

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has given clear cut signals to the Men in Blue -- Perform or perish.

Post the World Cup debacle and the Greg Chappell episode, the BCCI has made some strong rulings reportedly in favour of the overall game.

From slicing down the salaries of team members from Rs 1.6 lakh to Rs 1 lakh per one day outing to imposing a cap on the number of endorsement contracts of cricketers.

The Board seems to have made up its mind to regain its control over the game. It scrapped the zonal representation in the senior and junior selection committee, removed the gradation system of team members along with the decision to set up cricket academies by its affiliated units in all states.

Also, the BCCI sent show cause notices to Sachin Tendulkar and Yuvraj Singh for breaching the Board's code of conduct.

What do you think about the BCCI rulings? Too harsh on the players or just an eyewash? Will the BCCI retract its rulings on the endorsement contracts of players? Who should have an upper hand over the game, the Board or players? Tell us.
