Pawar shift

Mr. Sharad Pawar has won the election for the post of President of the BCCI. The polls, which were a drawn-out affair, took a decisive turn after the appointment of former Chief Election Commissioner Shri T.S. Krishnamurthy as Special Observer.

Rediff.com reports that the Pawar faction has won 20 - 11. That comes as a suprise because both factions were reported to have the same amount of backing.

Union Agriculture Minister and Maharashtra Cricket Association chief Sharad Pawar is learnt to have won the BCCI elections, pipping incumbent Ranbir Singh Mahendra for the top post.

Pawar won 20-11, his faction claimed.

NDTV's website, however is more circumspect: "Sharad Pawar faction claims victory in the BCCI presidential polls" is all that it says.

Pawar's election, if confirmed, is a major blow to Jagmohan Dalmiya, though it remains to be seen how the veteran from Maharashtra is going to rid Indian cricket of its politics.

I don't think it is such a serious thing. It is the easiest cliché, and anyone could have thought it up.

Who is at helm matters very little as long as they manage things well...

Hope the new leadership will do something constructively for the Indian Cricket..
