I am a trouble-shooter in BCCI: Pawar

Shillong:

BCCI President Sharad Pawar on Friday said he avoided poking his nose into each and everything in the cricket administration.

"I have appointed proper experts to handle the affairs of the BCCI. The experts in the field of cricket are more equipped to handle such matters," Pawar said.

"I have set guidelines for them. I have confidence that they can deliver. And in case of any problem, I am always there as a trouble-shooter," he said in reply to a query at a press conference here on his absence at the much-hyped auctioning of cricketers in Mumbai on Wednesday during the Indian Premier League's bidding process.

Referring to IPL chairman Lalit Modi and other cricketers like Sunil Gavaskar who are in the IPL panel, Pawar said, "I had no work in the IPL bidding. There are also eminent businessmen in the IPL panel to assist the cricketing experts in the exercise.

He said "my working style is different. I believe in decentralisation. I head many organisations, but the actual executers are the experts in the particular field that I have appointed in the bodies".

He said after returning to Mumbai this evening, he will be briefed by the IPL functionaries about the developments.
