Shambit Bal asked about Cricket Administrator being more concerned about the credibility of the game. Like a Politically correct person Dravid avoided the truth. The Truth is administrator never care about the values of the game. These values are only known to the players who play the game with the true spirit the fans who idolize these players, who try to seek meaning of their life through the ups and downs of the game through gentleman ship of their favourite players. The solution this crony situation must always try to bring in a thorough gentleman cricketer at the helm of administrating staff of Cricket in this country. Someone like Anil Kumble.
