Anurag Thakur takes potshots at BCCI for 'not standing by their players', calls Cricket Australia 'arrogant'

New Delhi: Former BCCI President Anurag Thakur on Thursday lashed out at Cricket Australia officials for targetting Virat Kohli over the DRS controversy in the ongoing Test series, terming their conduct "disgraceful" and "arrogant".

Thakur, who was removed from the post of BCCI President early this year by the Supreme Court in the wake of the Lodha Committee recommendations, said that Cricket Australia has always tried to dictate terms to India through his Twitter account in a series of tweets.

Taking a dig at Kohli, CA Chief Executive James Sutherland had said that he was not sure if the Indian captain knows how to spell the "sorry" word.

"Look I am not sure he knows how to spell the word," said Sutherland on a chat with an Australian radio station.

Sutherland had called truce with the BCCI following the DRS controversy after Australia captain Steve Smith sought dressing room help to decide whether to take a review or not during the second Test in Bengaluru.

But Thakur felt those currently at the helm of BCCI affairs did not fully stand by the Indian team.

"What sort of 'truce' was this? @BCCI compromised the integrity of their #TeamIndia Capt @imVkohli & didn't stand by their players & team," he said.
