Mumbai:

Former India captain Kapil Dev, now associated with the rebel Indian Cricket League (ICL) as the chairman of its Executive Board, on Wednesday had a subtle dig at the Cricket Board for the crores of rupees the latter had made through its own T20 league, the Indian Premier League (IPL).

"I am not impressed with figures of 200 crores, 300 crores, 1000 crores I am hearing. I want people to be convinced with what we are doing," he told a press conference today when asked about the BCCI-promoted IPL.

The business head of the Essel Group which is bankrolling the ICL, Himanshu Modi, responded by saying, "I will accept the cheque (if offered to ICL)" and Kapil quickly retorted "I look at the cricket part and he looks at the bank balance".
