He's back! Watch out everyone, Dalmiya has won the election for President of the Cricket Association of Bengal. And he's said that the IPL has been an amazing success story. Lalit Modi has better watch himself. The Times of India has been quoting insiders (read losers in the election, I guess):
After the five-hour wait, when the decisions finally
came out, huge celebrations started at the CAB. But some of the wiser heads in
the association were prompt to point out that "one shouldn't expect too much
development in Bengal cricket" in the coming days.
"The choice was
between the devil and the deep sea. Probably we went for the known devil," a
member, who voted for the Dalmiya panel, quipped before leaving the CAB. With
the BCCI dangling the suspension sword on Dalmiya, one can be rest assured that
it won't be all rosy for the CAB in the near future.
Saurav Ganguly had better watch out too.
