[an error occurred while processing this directive] Ranchi: India's women's cricket team skipper Anjum Chopra on Tuesday said she favoured one cricket body for both men and women and appealed to the Board of Control for Cricket in India to help the women's cricket grow in the country.''I would like to have a single Board for both men and women cricketers," said Anjum, who led the women's Test team registering its first ever overseas win in South Africa last year. ''It will help a lot (for the women's cricket) as the BCCI is the biggest autonomous body in the country, probably in the world. So if our women's cricket can get a little help from the BCCI it would help women's cricket grow in India as well. The more games we play the better for us," said.Anjum is in Ranchi with the Air India team for the East Zone Limited Overs cricket tournament for senior women.''We are not getting any assistance from the BCCI right now, nothing at all,'' she said.Asked what measures she preferred to make the women cricketers as popular as the men, Anjum, who also bowls right-arm medium pace, said, ''We have to win big tournaments...Perform well...We have to sell the game to thepeople... And improve our standard to the level where the men have already reached today.'' PTI
