BCL is finally over but the repercussions of the series will be life long
Marinating Films and Balaji Telefilms’ Box Cricket League is over and Delhi Dragons have emerged as the final winners. They took home the trophy but a lot of players from the other teams don’t really agree with the win.
Well we caught up with Barkha Bisht – captain of the Chandigarh Cubs. She feels that, the winning team didn’t play fair. “Chandigarh Cubs gave the women in the team equal opportunity to play; they batted, bowled and fielded brilliantly. But Delhi Dragons used their women merely as showpieces and pushed them in the background. They did not give them the importance that BCL had intended to.”
Additi Gupta, who won the Woman Of The Series trophy said, “Delhi Dragons won the tournament, but they got the women out on purpose. I think it was against the spirit of the game. They won by cheating; if they had to do that they should have stayed at home. Initially, when I spoke to Suyyash Rai about girls playing cricket, he said we will not do hit wicket and right in the first match he did just that. They don’t trust their own girls. I think people did not realise it was just a ten day match and they should have kept the spirit alive.”
Well, while we congratulate the Delhi Dragons, their strategies definitely seem unsporting, no? What do you think BollywoodLifers?
