Sunny seeks Rs 1.90 cr from BCCI
Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has asked for an amount of Rs 1.90 crore as remuneration for rendering his services as president BCCI-IPL during the seventh edition of the cash-rich league last year, which was held in UAE and India.
Gavaskar was appointed 'President, BCCI-IPL' on directive of Supreme Court of India and the apex court had directed the BCCI to pay him adequate compensation as he put his various media commitments (commentary and writing columns) on hold during that period.
According to reliable source in the Working Committee, Gavaskar had written to the board about the compensation.
When asked whether the amount that he has sought has already been approved, the official said, "Not as of now. But obviously, he needs to be compensated as there is a SC directive and we need to follow that. But this letter will be placed before the finance committee, which will approve an amount."
