BCCI you have all the power and money to globalize the game across the world , Ireland Afghanistan Scotland needs more exposure, May be BCCI can raise voice for Ireland for Test they will be good team in next 5 years if given regular fixtures with Full Members. BCCI don't just think about yourself when you are boss of ICC , think of cricket as a game and its growth .
Cricket needs to be managed by cricketers not by politicians especially people like Sharad Pawar. Moreover politicians are involved since huge money at stake and a breeding ground for money laundering and other nefarious activities.

Politicians will always get involved that gets them money & power.Cricket has both & so all state bodies have only politicians as president.Why are they not in Hockey,Tennis or Badminton?The answer is simple.It neither has money nor power.
Sachin, Laxman and Dravid are expert cricketers who understand the game better than the best administrator. They can become excellent selectors. No one knows their administrative skills. Good administration needs experts in that particular field.
