New Delhi: BCCI President N Srinivasan has rejected accusations that the Indian Cricket Board censors commentators employed by it, insisting that it does not "interfere with the freedom of the press".
"We don't censor commentators. This word censorship is incorrect. BCCI doesn't tell the commentator you say this, you cannot say this and things like that," Srinivasan told 'ESPN Cricinfo'.
A controversy was triggered recently when former Australian captain Ian Chappell refused to take up a commentary assignment in India after being presented with a set of dos and donts.
