Thiruvananthapuram:BCCI secretary S K Nair on Saturday said there was perfect understanding between Cricket Board officials and players and the Board would ensure that interests of all sections were protected.

Reacting to reports in a section of the press, quoting an interview given by Indian captain Sourav Ganguly four years back in which he had severely criticised Ranbir Singh Mahendra, who has been elected president of the BCCI last week, Nair said that he did not know the circumstances in which Ganguly aired those views.

Ganguly had reportedly lashed out against Mahendra in the interview in 2000 on his experience with him when he was manager of the Indian team during the 1991-92 Australian tour. Ganguly made his debut in the series.

"Now there is perfect understanding between players and officials. BCCI takes decisions after consulting all sections," Nair said.

On politicians trying to seize control of BCCI, he said there were instances of politicians running the Board like former minister N K P Salve, who had always been working for the game. "However, some are now trying to reach positions seeking support of other zones."
