Bhubaneswar, Jan. 2: F Indian Premier League (IPL) ex-chairperson and cricket administrator Ranjib Biswal on Monday hailed the sacking of BCCI president Anurag Thakur by the Supreme Court and said the action against Thakur was quite inevitable as he was running the show in an “immature” and “arrogant” manner.
“The action against Anurag Thakur was inevitable. He always wanted to run the BCCI administration in immature, arrogant and egoistic manner. The action against him was quite inevitable. His departure from BCCI would have no impact on the cricket body,” Mr Biswal told to a local television channel here.
Stating that the BCCI was one of the well-organised and well-managed sports administration bodies in the world, Mr Biswal, the former India junior team captain under whose leadership great players like Sachin Tendulkar and Ajaya Jadeja had played, – said BCCI would function as usual with other experienced office-bearers.
It may be mentioned here that on Monday morning, the Apex Court sacked Thakur from the post of BCCI president for not complying with its orders.
