BCCI President counters Afridi’s ‘more inclined toward India’ statements

The newly-appointed president of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), Roger Binny, has slid in powerfully to encounter Pakistani cricketer Shahid Khan Afridi’s statements. According to Binny, Afridi in no way should make such statements since every nation is treated the same way by the International Cricket Council (ICC) despite India being the powerhouse of cricket.

Afridi’s statements have been making rounds on the internet since, while talking on a local channel, he narrated that ICC favours India in many situations in the big tournament. He analyzed this after there was no five-run penalty despite Virat Kohli faking a throw during India’s match against Bangladesh on Wednesday.

While Nurul Hasan, other official members of Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), and experts from all across the world have raised their voices for Bangladesh and against India, Kohli’s countrymen have been coming forward to defend the act, saying nobody on the ground noticed it at the moment. They find it baseless to raise the complaints later; however, the BCB has taken the matter to an international level.

While Afridi has said that,

“You saw the ground how wet it was. But ICC is inclined towards India. They want to ensure India reaches the semi-finals at any cost. The umpires were also the same who officiated India vs Pakistan & will get the best umpire awards.”

Roger has come in defence of the act quoting,

“Not fair. I don’t think we’re favoured by ICC. Everyone gets the same treatment. No way in which you can say that. What do we get different from other teams? India is a big powerhouse in cricket, but we’re all treated the same,”
