Other Boards need to get tougher: Lorgat

International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive Haroon Lorgat on Saturday said it was time for strong cricket boards like Australia to challenge India on important issues like the Decision Review System (DRS).

Lorgat said DRS not being implemented in matches involving India should not be seen as the case of the powerful Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) using its financial clout but as a failure of other board members. The absence of DRS has become an embarrassment in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
"It's not the strength of India that should be of concern, it should be the weakness of the others, because good governance is about everybody being able to stand on their own feet," said Lorgat here.

All are weak
When asked if he included Australia among those weak members, Lorgat said: "All of them, because if I am dominant I will get what I want because the (others) don't want to challenge me. So don't blame me, blame yourselves."
