Jagmohan Dalmiya, who will serve as interim head of the BCCI while an inquiry is conducted into allegations of spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League, has said that the controversial emergency meeting of the BCCI working committee held in Chennai on Sunday was good for cricket.
Some members of the board have slammed yesterday's meeting, where N Srinivasan "stepped aside" as board president and Mr Dalmiya was given charge of the day to day affairs of India's cricket board. But the interim president, who is seen as Mr Srinivasan's mentor and has been BCCI chief in the past, said he did not agree that the meeting was a "sham". (Read: who said what)
"As far as I am concerned, this is not a victory for individuals but a victory for the game of cricket," Mr Dalmiya said as he landed in Kolkata back from Chennai. "I don't subscribe to the view that the meeting was a sham...I believe in achieving results and we will be able to accomplish our goals."
