India's sports minister should let the BCCI be

A bill that seeks to bring the BCCI and other national sports bodies under federal transparency and accountability laws has sparked controversy in India. Opinion is divided on whether an independent body like the BCCI which does not take financial assistance from the government should be subject to such regulation. Ashish Magotra, on firstpost.com, says that the BCCI is doing a much better job that other sports bodies in the country and should be left alone.

While the move to ensure more transparency and make the players come under the WADA-specified anti-doping rules should be welcomed, the government should learn from its various misadventures with the other sporting organisations around the country to realise that it just isn't equipped to handle an organisation as big as the BCCI.
