New Delhi:

Former Indian cricketer Kapil Dev's stormy relationship with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) continued with a fresh spate of allegations.

In the latest development, the former India captain has moved the Delhi High Court against the Board.

Kapil Dev filed an affidavit with the Delhi High Court on Tuesday, alleging that the BCCI deliberately amended the rules, after he joined the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL), in order to stop his post-retirement benefits.

The legendary player had been receiving pension and other benefits since the year 2000, when the BCCI announced its pension scheme for retired cricketers.

However, after the inception of the ICL, the BCCI announced that anyone joining the rebel league would not be considered for any benefits.
