Chennai: Seasoned politician Sharad Pawar, who was forced to pull out of the the race for president's post at the BCCI elections, said the poll outcome has shown that the powerful cricketing body was not solely controlled by N Srinivasan.

"I am quite happy with the new set of board members," said Pawar after Jagmohan Dalmiya was unanimously elected president at the BCCI AGM here yesterday.
Pawar said the result showed that Srinivasan did not rule the board. "Somebody was claiming that the entire board was under his thumb, so this result has shown that is not the situation," said Pawar.
