Miffed by BCCI’s rigid stance against the Indian Cricket League,former India captain and ICL Board Chairman today alleged the Cricket Board is just not interested in promoting the game.

“It’s a very simple thing. People who do not want to promote the game are running the game,” Kapil said.

Earlier this week,a tripartite talk in Johannesburg on ICL’s application seeking ICC approval failed to end the deadlock. ICC President David Morgan,chief executive Haroon Lorgat,BCCI secretary N Srinivasan,chief of the Essel Group,which is bankrolling ICL,Subhas Chandra and its business head Himanshu Mody attended the three-hour meeting.

Kapil said the basic idea was to promote the game and ICL had no reasons to feel bad about it.

“Aren’t we promoting the game?. That’s the bottom line. If we are promoting the game in India,then one should not feel bad. Rather one should feel proud and we are happy about that,” Kapil said.

He was speaking on the sidelines of a mascot launch programme of International Wheelchair & Amputee Sports (IWAS) World Games which would be held here from November 24 to December one.
