New Delhi:

In an exclusive interview to NDTV's Vikram Chandra, cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar has cleared the air on the Kochi controversy and has also revealed that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has not paid him for services to the Indian Premier League (IPL) Governing Council.

Gavaskar was a member of the council for three years of the tournament. "I am yet to be paid by the BCCI for my role on the IPL Governing Council. I have not been paid at all by the BCCI, since I took on the offer," Gavaskar said. He said that he had sent what he called "a gentle reminder about the non-payment", and that, "I have just been told that Mr (Sharad) Pawar will organise a meeting between Shashank Manohar (BCCI chief) and me in his presence to sort out the matter and that for me is good enough."
