New Delhi: Terming the BCCI's Emergent Working Committee meeting in Chennai a sham, former spin legend Erapalli Prasanna on Monday said that money is ruling the sport now and it is no more a gentleman's game.
"The entire controversy is not going to affect the popularity of cricket in India as we have seen packed stadiums in IPL. Followers of the game are immense here but I can see the gentleman's approach in the game is zero now," Prasanna told PTI Bhasha.
"Money is ruling the game now and it hurts as cricket has been a glorious game of uncertainties. During our times if a batsman was out but umpire was in dilemma, the batsman himself used to walk out. That was called a gentleman's game but now nobody is bothered.
