BCCI as a platform for politics
With the arrival of Jai Shah, the son of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the BCCI has become a platform for politics. It is natural for every player in cricket to say goodbye after reaching a satisfactory level. Things changed with the entry of Jai Shah as BCCI secretary. Talents are failing to excel as the board is home to politics. There is politics going on in the selection. -K.Narayana, CPI National Secretary
