Kolkata: Sahara India Pariwar chairman Subrata Roy on Friday blamed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president N. Srinivasan for the bitter row that led to his company withdrawing its sponsorship of the Indian cricket team.
"We enjoyed a very cordial relation with BCCI earlier but the current president has a different mindset. He never keeps his promises and commitments. He has a lot of egos and why should we bear anyone’s ego," Roy asked while speaking to reporters.
With its sponsorship of the Indian cricket team expiring in December, Roy said he was not keen to renew the deal, which the company had withdrawn in February along with the ownership of Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Pune Warriors due to differences with the board.
