Kapil’s ouster sad chapter in Indian cricket: Saba Karim

Former Indian stumper Saba Karim today described Kapil Dev’s removal from the post of National Cricket Academy (NCA) chairman as ‘sad chapter’ in cricket history of India.

“The way BCCI treated Kapil Dev, who once brought pride to the country, must be denounced. A legend like Kapil Dev who, as a captain, steered India to bring home the World Cup, should not have been treated in such a nasty way,” he said, yesterday.

Saba, here in connection with the inauguration of the 11th Dhyanchand Throwball Championship, said BCCI officials should try to have ‘broader conversations’ with Indian Cricket League (ICL) instead of treating it as a rival.

Asked if he was interested in joining ICL, the former international cricketer said he was not averse to the idea though at present he had no such intention.

ICL, he said, had a bright future and advised cricketers from Bihar to try and join it as the fate of the game in the state was uncertain due to court cases filed by different associations.

“It is better to try and grab the opportunity (presented by ICL) as quickly as possible,” he said adding waiting for BCCI would be a waste of time.
