In doing so, I was fortunate throughout to have fantastic mentors and colleagues. I will forever acknowledge the role of my mentor and former CAB and BCCI President B.N. Dutt, who had guided me to learn the ropes of cricket administration. And my current and previous teams of office bearers and Committee members have all been with me for years in this quest for excellence on behalf of the CAB.
The journey has truly been eventful. Despite India losing in the Semi Final, the final match of the 1987 World Cup at Eden Gardens was watched by close to 100,000 people, which is a historic achievement in world cricket.
