    Default Kapil unperturbed by BCCI snub over benefit cheque

    Even as uncertainty prevails over whether Kapil Dev has been left out of the list of former cricketers due to receive the one-time monetary benefit by the BCCI, the former Indiacaptain has said officials of the Cricket Board are the "boss" and it's their call to make any decision they want.

    "They are the boss. Let them do whatever they want to do. What is the point about talking on this matter" Kapil said on Wednesday.

    The 1983-World Cup winning captain was not invited by the BCCI for the functions at the four IPL venues where it is set to honour former cricketers with cheques for their services to Indian cricket.

    Kapil played 131 Tests and 225 One-Day Internationals for India and is rated among one of the greatest all-rounders to have played the game. He is entitled to get 1.5 crore from the BCCI as per the scheme."I am a content person and these things will not bother me. I enjoyed playing for India and that is it. I do not have to do anything more. I do not feel comfortable in talking negative. I am a very positive person and I do not have to talk about negatives."It is believed that Kapil was ignored by the BCCI as he had not accepted the amnesty offered by the board following his involvement in the Indian Cricket League -- the now-defunct Twenty20 league.

    While a senior BCCI official insisted that Kapil's name figures in the list of beneficiaries, some other officials said he was ignored.

    The Board had released the list of 65 players invited to collect their cheques at the four venues, but the entire list of beneficiaries has never been made public.
    "I wish them (BCCI) all the best. They will not come to me (as) they are the Board. Let them do whatever they want to do. What is the problem in that? Try to understand that if they want to do something let them do."

    My love, the spark that ignited the day we met
    remains an eternal flame.
