New Delhi:Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi is the second former India captain, after Sunil Gavaskar, to refuse a post on the IPL's governing council. Pataudi and Gavaskar served on the league's original council but decided not to be part of the reconstituted body after the BCCI said that council members would not be paid henceforth.
"I have written a letter to the BCCI which states that I do not wish to continue with the governing council," Pataudi told the Indian Express. "Earlier I was on a contract with the IPL, but the new changes are unacceptable for me. So, I have decided to move on."
