New Delhi:Former Cricket Board chief Raj Singh Dungarpur today slammed the BCCI for staging a compromise drama before a review committee when the same decision could have been taken by its president Ranbir Singh Mahendra himself.

Dungarpur, who had predicted a day before the Review Committee meeting at a media conference that nothing much would come out of it, wondered what was the need for such a show.

"The meeting was just a drama as the committee had no authority to take a decision. The President (Mahendra) could have taken a decision on his own instead of having a meetingin Mumbai," he said.

But now that the crisis appeared to have blown over, Dungarpur said it was time for the warring parties "to start playing cricket".

"My only advise to Ganguly is that when Greg Chappell talks cricket, it's better to listen to him. I am sure cricketers don't have wounds which last for life," he said.

"I wish them both the best of luck so that Indian cricket proceeds further," he added.
