Need better cricket administration: Dravid
"There are so many fans and so many people who care deeply about this game and it is because of these fans that we are who we are as cricketers. Administrators are there because of the fans and the cricketers to run this game, so credibility of a game, or a board, or even a government for that matter, is important irrespective of what you do. If you are in public life it is important," Dravid was quoted as saying on Cricinfo.
The BCCI filed a petition on Monday in the Supreme Court against the Bombay High court order which deemed the IPL spot-fixing probe panel 'illegal and unconstitutional'.
Dravid, who captained Rajasthan Royals to a third place finish in IPL this year, added, "Things like this don't help, when we are on the front pages of the newspapers and not on the back. A certain amount of reverence, respect and love for cricketers can diminish, and I think it's a really, really sad thing for cricket in this country if that had to happen."
