Dear BCCI,


Well, BCCI stands for the Board of Control for Cricket in India. But now we have to rephrase the name to Biased cricket control board of India for many reasons in the past one decade or even if in the history it is not wrong at all to any extent. Many great players' careers ended for no reason and still that policy is going on in such a big cricket board.



“Nepotism, favouritism, groupism, power politics - they thrive in all industries. These are basic Indian characteristics”.


If such board has the policy to restrict the talent then just imagine about the nation’s like Zimbabwe, Bangladesh or Kenya how they treat their players who don’t have the sufficient resources or adequate facilities at any level of cricket they play to compete against top quality test playing nations. I haven't watched the cricket of Sir Sunil Gavaskar era but I have heard many great stories of uncertainties that had happened in that era from my dad in my childhood. Even the great epic battles of Erapalli Prasanna or BS Chandrasekhar uncertainties are vivid in my mind which my dad has told me at some point of my childhood. Cricket was far better when there were emotions over this club level cricket these days even at the highest level of cricket which completely runs on the money by the corporate sector. It’s okay to financial secure the player life to some extent but replacing the talent with money is completely unfair. Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag, Javagal Srinath, Anil Kumble, Gautam Gambhir, Irfan Pathan and Yuvraj Singh players like these deserve the better farewell they should not be treated like part-timers. It was not Sachin Tendulkar or Mohammad Azharudin, but it is my childhood hero Rahul Dravid who took the Indian Cricket level to surreal heights straight through the start of his career and started the trend of winning at overseas conditions.


And, When Men in blue was struggling to find the opening batsman across the formats, our most fearless captain Sourav Ganguly made the move which had changed the perception of opening batting across the formats in world cricket. No doubt, Sanath Jayasuriya is definitely the trendsetter of whirlwind batting in the first hour of the match but it was Virender Sehwag who took the cricket to complete another level and made it surreal in every way. Sehwag hand-eye coordination is definitely the rarest thing in cricket history and it’s hard to match that calibre. Again, we are very fortunate that a player like Virender Sehwag has played for India. Just imagine how fearless he could've been if played for nations like Australia and South Africa. As they never treat their best players like Mathew Hayden or Adam Gilchrist the BCCI did in the past or even in the current era of cricket.


BCCI always looks to generate more revenue from the game in any way rather than look for the talent to support players like Varun Aaron or Ambati Rayudu. At last, words from the fans of Indian Cricket to BCCI to stop wasting talents or revenue from the game as it will completely destroy the game in the near future.
