Mumbai:

In a clear case of defying the Cricket Board's gag order yet again, chief selector Dilip Vengsarkar has given a wide-ranging interview to a Mumbai newspaper just a few days after the BCCI sent the selectors a seven-point list of guidelines.

Vengsarkar may have stopped, albeit only temporarily, from writing his regular column in a Marathi weekly, but has decided to continue his collission course with the BCCI by giving the interview to Bombay Times.

The former India captain has already been asked for an explanation by BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah about his defiance of the gag order by continuing to write his column in "Sakal", a leading Marathi daily owned by the brother of Board chief Sharad Pawar.

The BCCI has not yet revealed whether they have received any explanation from Vengsarkar or its contents if it had been received though sources have said that he had sought special permission to continue to write his column.

It remains to be seen what the BCCI's response is to the latest instance of defiance of its clear-cut gag order by the selection panel chief.
