A day after the Supreme Court slammed the BCCI’s top brass, veteran politician and cricket administrator Sharad Pawar took a dig at the Supreme Court during an event in New Delhi on Friday.

“While I am closely associated with cricket, the matter is in the Supreme court. The Court is now going to decide how cricket will be organised. Till yesterday, they were guiding how to run the country. Now, they are also guiding the sports organisation,” Pawar was quoted as saying during the annual general meeting of industry chamber by PTI.

Pawar, who is a former president of the International Cricket Council and the BCCI, though refused to elaborate on his statement, “I don’t want to say anything about that. I don’t want to face contempt of court.”

SC came down hard on the current BCCI president Anurag Thakur for failing to implement the recommendations of the RM Lodha Committee approved by the Court.
