New Delhi: Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday disassociated itself from its vice-president Kamal Morarka's statement that the "there was more corruption in the CBI than in cricket"."It may be his view but has nothing to do with BCCI, it is purely his individual feeling. The Board does not agree with it," the BCCI said.Mr Morarka, who is also member of the disciplinary committee which met here this morning, made a surprise statement as he came out of the meeting saying there is more corruption in CBI than in the game.When asked why he has made such a sweeping statement, Mr Morarka said, "You (media) wanted some quote from me, I have given it you."Reacting to the statement, BCCI's Special Commissioner K Madhvan, himself a former joint director of the CBI said "It is in very bad taste and unwanted"."I have worked in CBI for 30 years, I know it functions, I stronglyrefute this statement. CBI still has credibility that is why everybody ask for CBI inquiry," he said.Regarding the procedings of Tuesday's meeting, Mr Muthiah told reporters as the internal inquiry regarding match-fixing and betting has been completed now the Board will now decide on the penalties against players found guilty in the Madhavan report."We heard all that they had to say. I will now appraise the Special General Body meeting at Calcutta on Wednesday on what they told the committee and what is to be done. The meeting will ratify what the Disciplinary Committee recommends and we will release our decision as early as possible. It may not be tomorrow itself, but it will be soon," Dr Muthiah said. Asked whether Mr Madhavan's supplementary report on the Board itself was ready, Dr Muthiah said, "I have already given him the response he had sought from us and he has made his report."Dr Muthiah said that the BCCI will not have any objection in sharing the contents of the Madhavan report with other national Cricket Boards and the International Cricket Council. "If the ICC or the other boards write to us, we may consider it," he added.He and Madhavan made it clear that no foreign player was discussed in the report. UNI
