It’s been a long standing habit of Indians to sling mud over the good names of Cricket and then track back. In his one of many loose moments, Sunil Gavaskar, the former Indian batsman first accused Mr. Mike Procter of racism, and then he hastily refuted implying it when the steam started boiling under him.
Gavaskar not only tried to undermine the Mike Procter, but also tried to implicate the ICC in racism. He said,” the ICC will do well to keep in mind that there were two umpires out there who had a bad game and not penalize only one or it could be up against a racist charge too.”
Gavaskar is making a hole in the plate in which he eats. He heads that committee of International Cricket Council (ICC) which makes the rules of the game, and just out of sheer narrow mindedness, he is even not sparing his employers. He further added that,” Throughout, as the controversy unfolded, it was only Bucknor that the Aussie media was pillorying and not (Mark) Benson. You form your opinion whether it was racist or not.”
Former New Zealand captain John Reid was on Tuesday quoted in Australian media as saying Gavaskar had no business heading the ICC’s rule-making committee after criticizing a match referee. South African great Barry Richards also accused Gavaskar of playing the racism card.
Legendary players of world cricket are really fuming over these accusations of Sunil, and they are demanding from ICC to implement strict discipline among its employees. Indians are trying to exploit their financial clout in ICC.More on:Australia, icc, India, India in Australia 2007, Mike Proctor, Sunil Gavaskar
