New Delhi: International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman N Srinivasan on Monday made it clear that he does not want to engage in a war of words with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Anurag Thakur, who has shot off a strongly-worded letter to him in response to the global body's claims about being seen with a suspected bookie.

"I have seen that letter written by Anurag (Thakur) which has been circulated to the media. He has written something in it but I feel it's not proper to respond to him through media," Srinivasan told PTI.

Himachal Congress seeks action against Thakur for bookie link

Shimla: The Himachal Pradesh Congress Committee yesterday demanded action against BCCI secretary and BJP MP Anurag Thakur for his alleged links with a suspected bookie over which ICC had also sent a letter to BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya.

"It's a well-known fact that cricket is a glamorous sport which had been marred by controversies relating to match fixing by bookies," State Congress chief spokesperson Naresh Chauhan said in a statement.

"Thakur who was seen socialising with Gilhotra at a function in Chandigarh, should explain to the general public and also to the cricket fans as to what is the nature of his relations with the bookie," he said.
