London: Former BCCI and ICC president Sharad Pawar has slammed the Board's decision to suspend the Rajasthan Cricket Association after banned IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi was declared as the chief of RCA in Jaipur yesterday.
"I was shocked to hear about the decision. I think it is a very harsh decision by the BCCI," Pawar said.
"For the sake of one individual, to suspend a whole organisation is really shocking. I hope Shivlal Yadav (BCCI's interim president) will show some spirit in the organisation and respect the views of the judiciary," he added.
The RCA elections were conducted in December last year but the results were sealed following a Supreme Court directive.
