It’s not the time to consider what I’ll get and what the opposite particular person near any person is getting. I don’t suppose individuals ought to make a problem of straightforward issues. This has turn into a conflict of egos and if this continues, it’s MPCA cricket which shall be at a loss,” a harm Jagdale mentioned.
“If egos take over knowledge, the establishment’s repute will get harm. Pandit’s appointment shall be good for MP cricket. Pandit doesn’t have to show his credentials to anybody.
