Ramachandra Guha has expressed his sheer discontentment over the favours granted to MS Dhoni and Sunil Gavaskar by the Committee of Administrators in the resignation letter he tendered to Vinod Rai on Thursday.
Ramachandra Guha had written a letter with hard-hitting facts after resigning from the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators on Thursday. The historian has lamented the Committee of Administrators, saying that they were a silent spectator on issues like conflict of interest, the Anil Kumble-Virat Kohli ‘rift’ and treating domestic players at par.
Ramachandra Guha has accused the Committee of Administrators for being a mute spectator to issues like conflict of interest and in the ongoing reports of a ‘rift’ between Anil Kumble and Virat Kohli. He is also upset at the way the BCCI has treated MS Dhoni and Sunil Gavaskar.
The seven points that Guha makes in the letter are as follows:
1. CoA’s failure to address conflict of interest issue. National coaches neglecting national team at the cost of IPL. Delhi Daredevils coach Rahul Dravid is also in charge of the India A and India Junior team.
2. BCCI contracted commentator Sunil Gavaskar being head of a player management company.
3. MS Dhoni given ‘A’ grade contract despite not making it to the Test team.
4. Unprofessional way of handling the India coach issue. Kumble’s contract coming under scrutiny despite his excellent past record and on eve of Champions Trophy.
5. CoA’s total neglect of domestic cricketers and huge gap in their match fee as compared to international players.
6. CoA silence on the disqualified officials attending BCCI meets.
7. Absence of male cricketer in CoA and the proposal to include Javagal Srinath in the committee.
