London: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has paid tribute to the former president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Madhavrao Scindia, who died recently in an aeroplane crash.
|He was BCCI president from 1990 to 1993, during which period he served as India's director to the ICC Executive Board. In this capacity his most significant achievement was to help win the 1996 World Cup for the Indian sub-continent. Later he also served on the PILCOM organising committee for the tournament. "I know from colleagues and friends in India that his tragic death at the age of just 56 has been a terrible blow to the worlds of cricket and politics in that country. He was clearly a remarkable man with many talents who achieved high office in both his chosen areas of professional and private interest during his lifetime," ICC president Malcolm Gray said in an official press release. |
