IPL play-offs' proceeds to be distributed among ex-cricketers
BCCI president N Srinivasan yesterday promised to help 185 Indian cricketers with the proceeds from the four play-off stage matches of the IPL. During the opening ceremony of the IPL, Srinivasan said:
“The proceeds from the play-off matches will be distributed among former cricketers, who have represented India at the international level and also among domestic players... around 185 Indian cricketers. It’s a small gesture from the BCCI to all those who have done yeoman service to Indian cricket,” he said.
