Calcutta: Former India opener and now the Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA) vice-president, Chetan Chauhan, is livid with Sreesanth for his greed that has led to a “complete waste of talent”.
In the city to promote Krira Bharati — a pan-India organisation that is working towards developing and nurturing sports at the grassroots level — Chauhan spoke about Sreesanth on the sidelines of the program.
Asked whether the BCCI’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit is doing a proper job, he quipped: “In India, we always become wiser after the deed is done. There had been indications and even the franchisees were warned, but no one took heed till the scandal broke out.”
Chauhan, the national head of Krira Bharati, said that its aim was to develop a healthy nation where sports will be a way of life.
Formed in 1992 in Pune, the organisation started going national in 2008 and the Bengal unit started functioning last year.
“I am travelling all over India to promote the organisation. We are still very new.
“We want to work with all the official sports bodies of India and help them with volunteers whenever needed. We want to promote all sports, especially indigenous ones,” he said.
