What he said:
“They thought their cricketers were machines and are being treated like machines.”
Former Pakistan cricket skipper, Mushtaq Mohammad, is indignant at the callous treatment of Indian cricketers by the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI).
Mohammad said: “"I also blame the players for running after the money in the IPL. They had put their body through all kind of strain and pain and didn’t think about the tour of England, which was a very important tour. I hope they learn their lesson that too much IPL and unnecessary cricket spoils the ranking of the team.”
What he really meant:
“The BCCI honchos evidently have not played cricket themselves and are blissfully unaware of the wear and tear from the grind of continuous cricket. Indian cricketers were found out as their ill-conditioned bodies gave in.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“The India-England series ought to have been billed ‘War Of The Machines’.”
