It needs to be curbed. It needs to be brought under the provisions of RTI. Without any sort of qualification that bloody Sharad Pawar is sitting at the top post there. not only there, but at ICC also! :O

Neither it is working as great even now! Atleast people who say "This is BCCI XI & not India XI", will have to find a different reason!

One thing to note here if BCCI comes under RTI then the selection process will also under preview. The flip side to this after RTI anybody why A was chosen and why not B?It will have both positives and negatives.

BCCI is the most powerful sports body in the world and abuses its powers at the international level. There is rampant corruption in the low level cricket matches being conducted in india. I think BCCI should be under RTI but it is an independent body so i think even if the government passes such a bill it will be struck down by the supreme court.

If BCCI is not taking any grants from the government as they claim to - and I would believe that is indeed the case - I don't think they should be brought under RTI. This would set a bad precedent as then any private body can be brought under this

They are taking all sorts of benefits. Sharad Pawar helped BCCI get a tax waiver at 2011 World Cup. More importantly, they represent "India" when they play cricket. They dont represent "BCCI". they dont represent any Private body. They represent nation.
