“If you want my answer, It’s a very good choice,” the cricketer turned commentator said on Srinivasan being appointed ICC chairman despite the Supreme Court stripping off the Chennai heavyweight’s powers as the BCCI chief pending probe into alleged corruption in the IPL.
“I don’t think you should jump the gun. There’s an inquiry going on, let that happen. Meanwhile the Supreme Court has said there’s no reason why Srinivasan can’t go and become the ICC chairman,” Shastri said at a promotional programme last evening. Opinions may vary but the former all-rounder was of firm belief that Twenty20 was the ‘injection’ cricket needed.
“It was the injection the game needed to evolve. We’re very lucky to have got three faculties in a game of cricket. There is a place for all three formats. This is the only sport that has a place for three formats. It won’t happen in any other sport. I think T20 cricket was extremely important,” he said.
