Mumbai: Former captain Diana Edulji Thursday criticised the BCCI for its discriminatory policies and said that India’s poor show at the World Cup is a clear indication that women’s cricket is not progressing in the country.
“I think we are playing less cricket after we came into the fold of the BCCI... I am sure if they had their way, if ICC was not there, then the women’s cricket would have been on an absolute down slide. The World Cup performance has shown,” she said at a promotional.
“It is bad luck that the girls played so badly in that one match against Sri Lanka. Unfortunately they didn’t do well and I was expecting this tournament to be a turning point for women’s cricket,” she said.
