Modi becomes Gujarat cricket chief

Gandhinagar: Ending the Congress party's domination, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi wrested the Gujarat Cricket Association (GCA) presidentship from the Congress.

Speaking to reporters after being elected unanimously to the post, Modi said that there was so much taking place outside and beyond the world of cricket, that he would use every opportunity and technical know-how to make cricket in Gujarat more market savvy and a better sporting entity.
