IS CRICKET A SPORT?
The latest happenings in cricket has created serious doubt among the followers
of the game -whether cricket is really a sport?.
BCCI, controlling body of the game of Cricket in India is the richest sports Body in
the world. But they donot come under RTI (Right To Information Act) and donot wish
to adopt the National Sports Code. Every sportsperson in the world come under
WADA (World Anti Doping Agency) and its whereabouts clause,but the cricketers
in our country donot wish to come under WADA. Is it good for the growth of the
game?.The present day cricketers are more commercial and some are even more greedy.
As a true lover of the game,I wish, the present day cricketers play the game for the
passion than for the money.Though IPL is a good brand in terms of the money it
generates for BCCI,little thought should be given for the damage it has created for
the game of cricket.
