The working committee is the most powerful decision-making body in the BCCI. In fact, any decision taken by every other committee has to be ratified by the working committee. On Sunday, though, an emergent meeting of this all-powerful conmittee was reduced to a farce. If Sharad Pawar's revelations aren't shocking enough, then read this. A member who represented a North Zone — he was there as per the board's rotation policy — actually made a mockery of the meeting.
Believe it ir not but he suggested that the names.of Bollywood starlets Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor and Katrina Kaif be proposed to rhe Supreme Court to probe into the IPL spot-fixing scandal. And bizarrely enough, no official — not even interim president Shivlal Yadav who chaired the meeting — reprimanded this official. A senior official who attended the meeting confirmed the same.
"I don't know who nominates such jokers to a meeting of such prominence. We were all there trying to save the BCCI from further embarrassment. But on Sunday, I realised that the BCCI is one big circus. All they want is to scratch each other's back. Nobody is interested in cleaning up the mess. I wonder why the chair did not raise an objection to such a stupid suggestion."
