BCCI gets it wrong
Wednesday 18 April 2018

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has been hit-wicket by its move to nominate Sunil Gavaskar for the Dhyan Chand award.

 

The award is given in recognition for Lifetime achievement in sports.

 

The eligibility rule for nominations clearly state that: “sportspersons who have already been conferred either with the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna, Arjuna or Dronacharya award will not be eligible to apply for Dhyan Chand award.

 

Gavaskar is a recipient of the Padma Shri and Padma Bhushan honours and also the C.K. Nayudu Lifetime award given by the BCCI. He had received the Arjuna award in 1975.
