Former Team India captain and Director Ravi Shastri on Friday has resigned from his post of media representative in ICC Cricket Committee which is headed by Anil Kumble.
The official reason is his busy media commitments as commentator, TV expert and columnist, but there is intense speculation that the former all-rounder may have resigned as he is yet to come to terms with rejection that led to a widely publicised spat with Cricket Advisory Committee member Sourav Ganguly. The CAC comprising Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman, instead selected their former teammate and captain Kumble. Shastri said he was disappointed at missing out on the coveted job as he had worked hard with the Indian team for 18 months. Shastri understood his absence as his insult.
However, the 53-year-old Shastri has been part of this committee for quite some time, wanted to give up this administrative role so that a fresh face could come in.
