KOLKATA, July 9 (PTI): Former India skipper Ravi Shastri has hailed International Cricket Council (ICC) for choosing the beleaguered BCCI supremo N Srinivasan as its first chairman.
�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,� he said.
