Take BCCI as an example. Secretary Joy Shah is the son of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Treasurer Arun Dhumal is a relative of Union Sports Minister Anurag Tagore. It doesn’t end there. Vice-President Rajiv Shukla is a former MP. Even former India captain and BCCI president Sourav Ganguly comes from an influential family.

Ganguly’s father Chandidas Ganguly has held various positions in the Cricket Association of Bengal since he started as Assistant Secretary in 1974. And the dynasty continues.

“It’s nothing new in Indian cricket. Ever since cricket became popular, the ability to play the game has been in the hands of a handful. With politics, one becomes more influential and has been doing so ever since. Even if there are no influential people, the game is played by their relatives or representatives from afar. ” A former player who has also worked for a state association told InsideSport.
