I don't like the BCCI. Period. If the BCCI cared about the actual cricketing perspective at all, India would be winning World Cups right, left and centre. But, all they care about is the money, and therefore are the richest board in cricket atm, and by a big margin over the 2nd richest I've heard. And, OMG, the politics in this system is just bull. There's so much, it's hardly imaginable. To me politics in cricketing boards is like a quiet form of match fixing. You're doing some harm, but you'll never be caught. Thus "quiet".
Let me put forward some examples of the politics:
1) Mumbai ruling the majority of this cricket board
The president, and well most the members are from Mumbai. And, recently, if you've seen, the president is HELL BENT on giving the Test captaincy to Tendulkar, who's also from Mumbai. And, the president has hinted that he wants to see Mumbai's domestic coach become the national coach, and that's crap. As far as I know that coach is nothing great, and there are way better candidates from the domestic circuit, forget the internationally acclaimed coaches.
2) The whole reason why India doesn't have a coach atm
Dav Whatmore was perfect for Indian coach. Sunil Gavaskar, who is from Mumbai, and may I add, despite his brilliant individual record is one of the most selfish people on the earth. Never played for the team, and doesn't do it now as part of the board as well. He doesn't like Whatmore, so kicked him out of contention, and brought in EMBUREY who is a despicably crappy coach. Whatmore > The rest tbh. What he's done with Sri Lanka and Bangla = No comparison to others.
3) The emergence of the ICL
I'm so glad the ICL arrived, because that forced the BCCI to launch the IPL and start working. But, the BCCI banning players who join the ICL from international duties is a joke. Are you willing to waste the talents of the likes of Abhishek Jhunjhunwala and Abid Nabi just because of competition in the domestic circuit in India? The BCCI seem fond of doing so. We've already lost out on Mithun Manhas, Amol Muzumdar, and if we don't hurry up even Badrinath, who's a great player if there ever was one.
Meh, I feel like we need a more tough board. There are so many other issues as well, such as why Yuvraj Singh was not chosen for captaincy and such. But, Dhoni turned out to be a diamond in the rough, and well, that's not gone against them.
