Citation[edit]

Does'nt this statement require a citation?

"This is India's richest sporting body and one of the richest sports team or body in the whole world."

Why not just add these references instead of talking about them? I don't see why there should be 6 years between the talk page discussion and the article being updated accordingly. Tripnoted (talk) 03:12, 10 March 2012 (UTC)


Is the BCCI really one of the world's wealthiest organizations in sport? Bigger than US sports organizations, FIFA or UEFA? When you think about it the there are players in American sports who's contracts are bigger than the $612 million paid Nimbus for broadcasting rights? I think some numbers need to provided here to comparatively assess its wealth as cricket is financially a relatively poor sport especially when compared to NFL, MLB or NHL.

They mean that It is the richest sporting body in India. Solar Police►Talk 08:14, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Lead[edit]

What does "It's not the apex governing body in India." from the lead paragraph mean? I tried googling the term, but no luck. Tripnoted (talk) 02:59, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Removed it. Something like that should not be the second line in the lead. Tintin 03:14, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
  • I don't trust this line too - "The board was formed in December 1928 as BCCI replaced Calcutta Cricket Club." It seems to imply that CCC was in charge of cricket in India before and that doesn't sound believable at all. Tintin

removing POV tag with no active discussion per Template:POV[edit]

I've removed an old neutrality tag from this page that appears to have no active discussion per the instructions at Template:POV:

This template is not meant to be a permanent resident on any article. Remove this template whenever:
  1. There is consensus on the talkpage or the NPOV Noticeboard that the issue has been resolved
  2. It is not clear what the neutrality issue is, and no satisfactory explanation has been given
  3. In the absence of any discussion, or if the discussion has become dormant.

Since there's no evidence of ongoing discussion, I'm removing the tag for now. If discussion is continuing and I've failed to see it, however, please feel free to restore the template and continue to address the issues. Thanks to everybody working on this one! -- Khazar2 (talk) 15:03, 17 July 2013 (UTC)

Lodha committee?![edit]

I find it extraordinary that Lodha committee doesn't exist and that there is no mention of the recommendations on this page and hardly any on Rajendra Mal Lodha. What universe am I in? Whatsup editors? DadaNeem (talk) 21:30, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

Big Three (cricket)[edit]

Same goes for Big Three (cricket). I also hope it will go away but meanwhile (and historically), its kinda notable... DadaNeem (talk) 21:35, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
