The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has at last reached out to the millions of fans of Indian cricket, asking suggestions to clean up the game in the wake of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 spot-fixing controversy.

In their meeting on Monday, the BCCI’s Emergent Working Committee drew plans to tackle the issue and revive the game in the country, which has suffered heavy damages in past few weeks.

The fans from all over the world can now log into the BCCI’s official website [www.bcci.tv] and share their views, which the Board will take into consideration for framing new guidelines of governance, reports Hindustan Times.

“The working committee decided to take measures to clean up Indian cricket. Suggestions will be invited from all quarters, including franchisees, to ensure the T20 League is conducted in the best possible manner. A separate working committee meeting will be held soon to finalise the action plan,” a BCCI statement said.

BCCI’s Information and Technology Committee Chairman, Sudhir Dabir said, “A separate link will be provided on the official website for the visitors to provide their suggestions. A committee will be constituted to study the suggestions. We expect thousands of them every day, considering the strong following the game has in the country.”
