Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh was removed as head of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI), which caused a lot of anger. Former Indian bowlers and members of the team that won the World Cup in 1983 wrote a letter of support for the wrestlers. But Roger Binny, the head of the BCCI, has given more information about the statement.
The Indian team that won the World Cup in 1983 released a statement on Friday, June 2, in support of the Indian wrestlers who are protesting against WFI boss Brij Bhusan Sharan Singh. Roger Binny, who is the president of the BCCI and was on the team that won the WC, said that he had nothing to do with that comment.
The former Indian bowler said that he didn’t say anything about the burning protest in the streets because “sports and politics should not be mixed.” He also said that the problem the wrestlers brought up is being looked into by the officials.
“Contrary to some news stories, I want to make it clear that I have not said anything about how the wrestlers’ protest is going right now. I think that the right people are working on a solution to the problem. “As a former cricket player, I don’t think sports and politics should be mixed,” the President of the BCCI told a news source.
In a joint statement, the members of the team that won the World Cup in 1982 voiced their sadness.
By winning India’s first World Cup in 1983, Kapil Dev’s team stopped the star-studded West Indies from being the best team. The next crop of cricket players in the country were moved by their victory. The Indian wrestlers, who have brought pride to their country, are having a hard time, so the World Cup-winning team put out a message on Friday.
“It’s upsetting to see our star wrestlers being treated in an unseemly way on TV. We are also very worried that they might throw their hard-won trophies into the Ganga River. These medals are the result of years of hard work, sacrifice, drive, and grit. They are not only the pride and joy of the people who earned them, but also of the whole country. We urge them not to rush into a decision about this, and we hope very much that their complaints will be heard and dealt with quickly. “Let the law of the land win,” said a statement from the team that won the World Cup in 1983.
