Express officeChandu Bordeformer Test player and chairman of BCCIs selection committeesays the spot-fixing controversy will not affect the game of cricket and that individual players are to be blamednot the BCCI or the ICC Manoj More: Let us start with the IPL controversy Is it cricketor games being played with the sentiment of millions of cricket lovers in the country IPL is one format of the game There is Test cricket and One-Day Internationals It (IPL) is also very lucrative It has brought a lot of money to the board Lifestyles have changedeveryone wants something quick I was really taken aback by the latest controversyespecially involving Sreesanth Sunanda Mehta: Is it sport that requires regulation and intervention or is it entertainment like WWFwhere everything is staged and no regulation is needed It is entertainment which the family can enjoy I wouldnt want any youngster to follow that kind of cricket if they want to make a career from the game Initially we were all against it But its pure entertainment Instead of spending money on and going for a three-hour movie one can now go and watch the IPL instead Anuradha Mascarenhas: Soit is no longer a gentlemans game It is entertainment You can go and enjoy it and there is also a lot of money in it Manoj More: Do you think cricket lovers have been cheated It is up to you to enjoy or not… If you dont like itleave it… It is up to you what to take from the game Manoj More: Mohd Ashraful of Bangladesh has conceded that he indulged in spot-fixing and has apologized Your comment That is true Even Hansie Cronje conceded it But if you are greedy and if your aim is to make moneythen who can stop you For instance Sreesanth is very well-off But his thinking and lifestyle is very different Youngsters these days indulge in drugsand if you dont get the money they do all sorts of things The same was the case with him This guy is flush with money but that is his lifestyle And it has been going on for quite some time And he got caught now Chinmay Brahme: You were the manager in 2007 when the team went to England Was it a shock for you when you learnt that Sreesanth was caught in spot-fixing He has been in different sorts of controversies Even with Harbhajan Singh there was a difference of opinion He is controversial in a different way…Sreesanth had a difficultyhe would bowl too many no balls In one match he bowled 12 no balls He got enough chances He was promising He was doing well then Chinmay Brahme: Is he a difficult player to handle Sometimes the situation is such that you have to tolerate some people in the interest of the game and the team Even in our times there were cricketers who used to do a lot of things We used to try to keep them away from sledging and all these tactics But this person was very talented The way he delivered outswingers was amazing And when we selected the team we expected a lot from cricketers including him But when he didnt perform we had to drop him We used to feel sad about it Sunanda Mehta: Was Azhars case something like this You were chairman of the Selection Committee when that came out It came as a shocktoo Such a well-behaved boysoftspoken… well-behaved family I never expected that he would fall prey to that Manoj More: Even 10-12 years after match-fixing first rocked Indian cricketthings still have not changed Who is to be blamed ICCBCCI or individual players Where does the buck stop Individual players His greed is there… nothing to do with the organisation… spot-fixing was not there in the past In 2007 when I was in England I had to take all the mobiles from players and lock it such that they (players) were not allowed to contact anyone We take a lot of precaution in our housebut if a robbery has to happen it will happen The ten-point idea proposed by the board is a good idea We should not give them (players) a chance to do such a thing That is why I was told to take the mobiles away Now they will defer the telecast by five minutesand also stop parties Who knew spot-fixingwho knew Dawood and Shakeel…how they managed to get around the people and work on the plan was amazing They masterminded the plan for almost six months Chinmay Brahme: How difficult is it for the managers to control players It is difficult Suppose you are a friend of Sreesanth and want to meet himI cannot stop you Like his cousin Jijuwho was also a cricketerhow do you stop him It is very difficult to control these elements from outside CID personnel are always there But all this happens outside Sunanda Mehta: How do we clean up cricket They will be coming out with rules and regulations which were not there earlier They have even slapped MCOCA on the fixers These things will clean up a lot of things Anuradha Mascarenhas: Do you think the flow of money into the game should be stopped Nowhy should it Cricket is the only organised game in India And the board is one of the best in the world The BCCI gives money to other sports also They give wrestlinghockey etc money to promote them Tell me one sport that looks after other sports Thousands of people are getting jobs here It is a big industry Atikh Rashid: Should it be transparent It is Whatever the money the board gets is distributed to the other boards A certain portion is retained with themselves Infrastructure is being put in by them So many things have happened through the game for so many people Rushal Dutta: Is cricket monopolising the sports industry How do you change it You tell me Partha Sarathi Biswas: Shouldnt the board come under RTI The board is transparent There are issues like these which are highlighted Now that it has come up they will thinksit together and discuss In a big familythere are such problems…A lot of people were against Srinivasan And the media played a big role in this In the end they came together and took a decision The board has different types of opinion What will be the best for the industry is what they all want They have done a wonderful job Chinmay Brahme: Isnt there a conflict of interest with the president of the board owning a franchise Now because of this fixing… people are coming out They will change the rules If they have made a mistake they will correct it Garima Mishra: Sportspersons are seen on TV shows and advertisements Is this affecting their performance In the endit all boils down to performance If performance dips because of that then you can say that Earlier there was regionalism in selection Now there is transparency The final teamwe want to select is one which is good for the country Anuradha Mascarenhas: Why are there no Pune players in the national team It is upto the performanceas I said If they are not thereit means they are not performing Chinmay Brahme: International players hide their injurieswhy do they do so Oncea player was injured and had a hairline fracture A normal hairline fracture takes three weeks to heal He came in after eight days with a certificate saying he was fit A top official of the board tried to put pressure on us We saw the certificate… it was by a gynecologist Sunanda Mehta : How much influence do politicians exert on selections They dont interfere in the selection process They are more useful to the organisation They get land matters sorted out Ticklish matters are sorted out immediately For others it is very difficult They neither interfere in the selection nor are they allowed to During my tenure as a chairman for 12 yearsall these players right from Gavaskar to the ones nowI was selecting them No one put pressure on my committee You see our record It was the golden erawe won the world cup… Now there is more transparency There is no one who can say the teams were not good Now even the selectors are paid good money Sunanda Mehta: As a managerdid you protect players This happened in Sialkot when Sachin was very young Sixteen-and-a-half As a manager we had to take care of them There was no hotel We were put up in a building with small rooms Sachin was above my room At around 11 pm there were noises coming from his room I went up and checked only to see him practising When I told him to go to sleep he said that he had never slept alone He said he felt scared So these are times when the manager has to look after the team Anuradha Mascarenhas: Do you think Sachin should retire now I tell you he is still useful to the team Is he a liability No He is still very important to the team If he was a liability I would accept it Give me one player who can replace him Manoj More: Was there groupism during your time There was no such thing when I was selector There was no groupism in 1970s when we won in England Sometimes you need to forget things For instance Gavaskar and Kapil greet each other when they meet each other… they are quite happy It is like politicians In the evening you will find them together People say there was a difference between Pataudi and me also But there was nothing He used to call me Maestro Manoj More: How were Gavaskar and Kapil as captains Gavaskar was very good Alsohe was a very smart During the Australia tourumpiring was terrible He was disgusted with the manner in which the decisions were handed down to them and walked out… Kapil was spontaneous He would take decisions which looked terrible and we would be shocked But his decisions clicked Manoj More: Have you had arguments with captains Yes There was a difference of opinionbut we discussed and sorted it outall in the interest of the team The captainchairman and selection committee members pick the team There are always two-three members of the selection committee available for this Manoj More: Which was your most memorable innings The match against West Indies in 1958-59 That was the fastest bowling we faced GilchristHallSobersTaylor They were very fast We never had helmets or chestelbow and thigh guards The overstepping rule was also not there They would bowl at speeds over 140 (km/h) In the game in Bombay we were beaten outright I was bowled in the second over itself In the last Test match in DelhiI decided… Either I would hit or I would get out I didnt want to be intimidated anymore And you will be surprised that I scored a century in the first innings and 96 in the second I was out hit wicket That was at Ferozeshah Kotla in 1958 That was my most memorable innings Manoj More: Did selectors ignore you despite you being in good form I went to Pakistan in 1954 and then they (selectors) forgot me for four years On meritI could have walked in Those days Bombay Cricket Association was very strong They got all the publicity Eight players were from Bombaythe remaining three were from outside I was selected next in 1958 I played cricket for a total of 23 years Sunanda Mehta: What do you think will happen to the IPL It will go on It will not be banned Why should it be banned There will be less seriousness in the game though Manoj More: Is there any message you have for the BCCI I hope they will do very well in future This was a difficult period There are a lot of nice people on the board They will take right decisions And they will do very well and much better in the coming years… Transcribed by Rohan Swamy For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Express News Service | Pune | Published: June 30 2013 1:32 am Related News
