The first challenge
February 25, 2008
The idea to reserve 100 crore for Commenwealth games athletes came from Sharad Pawar, the Times of India said today. Was Mr. Pawar’s decision because of this? And this? Whatever Thackeray and the commies’ intentions, they’ve now got the BCCI bothered. This is unlikely to die down soon, and it will probably take a lot more gift-giving by the cricket board to make them stop. And if it doesn’t stop before the league’s first matches start in April, well, the oiled pitches technique has been a favourite.
