TNCA happy with clean chit to Sundar Raman

``He (Sundar) was castigated for no reason. He had a harrowing time in the last two years,’’ said a seasoned administrator from South Zone.

The Secretary of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA), K. S. Viswanathan, is quite happy that the former IPL COO Sundar Raman has been cleared of all charges and given a clean chit by the Lodha Committee. ``Sundar being given a clean chit also goes to show that N. Srinivasan (past BCCI president) was clean as an administrator and person. There were so many false accusations made against him (Sundar),’’ said Viswanathan, who is here for the BCCI’s annual awards function.

``He (Sundar) was castigated for no reason. He had a harrowing time in the last two years,’’ said another seasoned administrator from South Zone.

The BCCI will ask its Legal Committee Chairman P. S. Raman to study the Lodha Committee report and advice the way forward for the BCCI and its members. Other members of the Legal Committee are Abhay Apte and D. V. S. S. Somayajulu. Most probably the BCCI will circulate the report to its 30 members and ask them revert with opinions of their legal counsels.

While the BCCI has already put in place measures to make its working accountable, two of its senior members, including Jyotiraditya Scindia, had expressed their opposition to outsiders being part of the IPL Governing Council.
