Sheikh Al-Sabah, the president of Olympic Council of Asia lambasted the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for not sending teams for the Asian games 2014.

“They have not sent the team for the second time to the Games. While I respect their decision, I am sorry to say and I believe they are not interested in promotion of the game but only in making it a business, in making money out of it,” said the OCA president.

“Cricket is a very famous sport in that region and in the Commonwealth countries. It’s a top sport in India. All the athletes of various sports like Wu Shu, Kabaddi, Sepak Takraw which are not in the Olympic Games are participating in these Games. I am sad that the top athletes of cricket were not allowed to take part,” said Sheikh Al-Sabah.
