Cricket Canadas president Banwarilal Ben Sennik has appealed to the BCCI to help them to revive the sport in the North American country.
Sennik will be meeting BCCIs chief administrative officer Ratnakar Shetty in Mumbai on Tuesday to try and organise few matches with the Indian team in Canada. Besides Shetty,Ben has sought a meeting with former BCCI chief Sharad Pawar and ICC vice-president in this regard.
I want to sent out a message to India to help us out. A series or few matches against our national team will be a huge boost for our country. And it also makes economic sense, he said here,close friend and DDCA vice-president Chetan Chauhan by his side.
Sennik said the Canadian board had been talking to the BCCI for sometime now,but talks havent moved forward the way we would have like to see, he added.
