'BCCI should be whipped for inviting Pak'
Thursday 19 July 2012

Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray today said the BCCI should be "publicly whipped" for the decision to resume bilateral cricket series with Pakistan.

"The whole country is against Pakistan. BCCI should be whipped before the Taj Hotel and CST (venues of the 26/11 terror attacks)", Thackeray said in an editorial in party mouthpiece 'Saamana'.

"Having peace talks with pakistan which is behind the blasts in india is a farce, Thackeray said. Playing cricket with them is treason", he added.

BCCI was after money and willing to trade the country's security for money, he alleged.

Thackeray lauded Sunil Gavaskar for his opposition to the Indo-Pak cricket matches. "He has given voice to the sentiments of the people", he said.

"The empty stadiums during these matches will be the true homage to 26/11 victims and martyrs", he said.


BCCI will pay more to boards for allowing their cricketers to play IPL
The Indian board, though, will make the payments on pro-rata basis, which will depend on the duration of the player’s availability during the season.
