India not a bully: Morgan

New Delhi: India is not a bully at the International Cricket Council (ICC), David Morgan said on Friday. "I have never regarded India as a bully at the ICC," He was reacting to criticism by some cricket commentators that India always had its way because of its financial muscle

Morgan referred to his experience with India at the ICC under the leadership of Jagmohan Dalmiya, Sharad Pawar and Shashank Manohar and said he would never accept that India acts as a bully. "I refer to my experience with India at the ICC under the leadership of Dalmiya, Pawar and now Shashank Manohar. I do not accept that India acts in a bullying fashion," Morgan said from London.

The presence of just three Indians in the ICC's Hall of Fame may have generated a controversy in the country but the game's governing body on Friday made it clear that more Indians would be added to the elite list. The ICC said that the list would be updated annually and would have an adequate Indian representation.
