BCCI’s precautions against unsavoury characters for WI and England tours (Satire)

Following reports in the media of unsavoury characters loitering and hanging around Indian cricketers in South Africa at IPL2, the BCCI has decided to take precautionary measures against a repetition of such incidents on the forthcoming West Indies and England tours.

Upon receiving a list of shady personas from the CBI, the BCCI has begun interviewing ‘candidates’.

The administrative cricketing body believes that if there are to be any ‘crooked’ folks surrounding the Indian players, they should come pre-approved by the BCCI.

“Better the devils we know than the devils we don’t.” said Mr. Shashank Manohar.

Each selected candidate is to be provided a BCCI badge and an identity card. These accredited credentials  grants them free access to Indian cricketers at any time of day or night bypassing any security arrangements.

The candidates’ phone bills are to be paid by the BCCI.

“They will have a free hand. They will be closer than even the players’ wives and girl-friends.” said Mr. Ratnakar Shetty.

The BCCI is also willing to allow chosen interviewees to double up as player agents to lend themselves added legitimacy.

However, the short-listed unsavoury characters are not quite happy with the BCCI’s sudden generous frame-of-mind.

Mr. Nakliwallah said: “We trust each  other. There is some truth in that old adage ‘honour amongst thieves’. But we’re dealing with the BCCI here. Who knows if they will keep their word? Remember Lalit Modi?”
