New Delhi: Former India captain Kapil Dev on Thursday favoured the Sports Ministry's move to make BCCI function as a National Sports Federation (NSF), as proposed in the National Sports Development Bill.
The BCCI had rejected the bill at its Working Committee meeting in Kolkata on October 29, saying certain aspects of the bill are meant to "destroy the autonomy" of the board, but Kapil said the cricket board should abide by the law.
"I think nobody is above the government or law, it may be the cricket board or any other association. Perhaps it personally hurts BCCI and so they are saying no to this bill. I don't mind losing anything if my country is benefitted and that should be the mentality," said Kapil at a FICCI function here.
