HDFC chairman Deepak Parekh will be a special advisor to Sunil Gavaskar, interim president of the Indian cricket board, during the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the board said in a statement Friday.
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Sanjay Patel said that Parekh was appointed at the insistence of Gavaskar. Parekh will be a special invitee to the Governing Council meetings of the IPL.
“Parekh has been dubbed as the unofficial crisis consultant of the government. His role as Special Director on the Satyam Board in 2009, to revive the company and restore the confidence in the Indian IT industry, was greatly acknowledged. Parekh has always been willing to share his ideas and experience to formulate reform policies across sectors,” said Patel in a statement.
Hyderabad – Sunrisers Hyderabad, who made it to the last four on their Indian Premier League (IPL) debut last year, are confident of an even better showing in the seventh season of the T20 tournament, beginning in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) April 16.
The Hyderabad franchise owned by the Sun TV group is bullish about its prospects as it not only retained the last year’s core team but also acquired batsmen David Warner and Aaron Finch and bowler Irfan Pathan in the auction.
To be led by Shikhar Dhawan, the team is looking to improve its performance further in this year’s tournament, which will be partly played in the UAE and India.
Chief coach Tom Moody and mentors K. Srikkanth and V.V.S. Laxman were upbeat about the team’s prospects. Interacting with the media along with some players here Friday, they exuded confidence of a successful campaign.
“Obviously, we had a good campaign last year, given that it was our first IPL as Sunrisers Hyderabad. This year we feel confident. We feel we have the strongest side but we have got total respect for the competition because we know every side has match winners,” said Moody.
Bollywood actor Vindu Dara Singh, who was alleged to have been involved in Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scandal last year, has claimed that the entire tournment is “100 per cent fixed”. Vindu has made some startling claims in a sting operation conducted by “Zee Media”. The actor said Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) owner and industrialist Vijay Mallya is involved in betting. “It is 100 per cent fixed,” Vindu says when asked about the IPL. He goes on to add, “Barring Vijay Mallya nobody knows anything. Mallya is himself involved in betting, he earns Rs 100-200 crores (approximately – $16million-$32m) in IPL.”
Vindu said the “tussle” is between Lalit Modi and BCCI president N Srinivasan and he had nothing to do with the scandal. “This entire case is actually a tussle between Modi and Srinivasan. We have nothing to do with it. We did nothing….but were still dragged into it. Lalit Modi just needed a chance to get Srinivasan out,” he said.
