Giving a new twist to his payment row with the BCCI, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar on Wednesday said it was former BCCI President Sharad Pawar who promised “extra payment” to him for his services as an IPL Governing Council member.Gavaskar had on Tuesday hit out at the Cricket Board for not paying him for his role in the IPL Governing Council, a claim which was promptly refuted by the BCCI.In a fresh revelations, Gavaskar said he is now waiting for Pawar to meet current BCCI head Shashank Manohar to work out the matter.”I am now waiting for Mr Sharad Pawar, the then President of BCCI, to arrange a meeting with the current President of BCCI to help untangle and resolve this ‘demanding’ matter, since it was he who made the offer for the extra payment over and above the original amount given to the former players on the Governing Council and on whose word I agreed to come on board the Governing Council,” Gavaskar said in a statement.Gavaskar has found support from suspended IPL chairman Lalit Modi, who said the former India captain had always been forthright in his dealings and never known to be a liar.”A lot has been said about Sunny. All I can tell you is that in all my dealings with Sunny, I’ve never known him to be a liar or anything. Sunny has been forthright. I’m sure they’ll sort it out,” Modi said in London.Gavaskar, who was controversially omitted from the IPL’s Governing Council in September this year, claimed he had not been paid for the last three years but Board secretary N Srinivasan rubbished it, saying it was not factually correct.advertisementWith inputs from PTI
More European leagues got started this week, with play opening in Spain and Italy, and that meant more Mexican players getting involved in European action.It was the second week of play, though, for Hirving Lozano, for whom it was business as usual. “Chucky” made a near-post run and finished off a pass from Angelino to give his club the lead over Fortuna Sittard on Saturday in league play. He then was taken out shortly after the hour mark as PSV eventually earned a 2-1 victory.He was back on the scoresheet with a beautiful goal in his Champions League debut on Tuesday. Lozano scored the second of PSV’s three goals in a 3-2 victory over BATE Borisov that sends the series back to Eindhoven for the Dutch side to close out. After having a point-blank header saved in the first half, the Mexico star unleashed a curler from outside the box that flummoxed BATE goalkeeper Denis Scherbitski. Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Nestor Araujo is a new face in Europe, one of the few El Tri players who made the switch this summer. A knee injury kept him out of the World Cup, but he looked to be back at 100 percent for former Monterrey manager Antonio Mohamed’s Celta de Vigo. Araujo went all 90 minutes in a 1-1 draw with Espanyol.Potential El Tri center-back partner Hector Moreno was a rumored transfer target during the offseason, but also played the full match for his club in Spain. Moreno helped Real Sociedad to a 2-1 victory over Villarreal. Miguel Layun didn’t get to make his debut with the Yellow Submarine, though it will come sooner rather than later. Oswaldo Alanis is looking for a new club after being released from his Getafe contract; he never played for the La Liga side, where he signed this summer.It was the second week of action for Porto, and Hector Herrera once again was in the starting lineup for the defending champions. Herrera fired off a rocket of a shot in stoppage time that hit the post, but after a video review was ruled also to have been handled by a Belenenses defender. That led to a penalty kick being converted for a 3-2 victory. Jesus Corona came in as a substitute, playing the final 26 minutes of the contest. In England, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, made his first start of the season but couldn’t change West Ham’s luck as the Hammers fell 2-1 to Bournemouth. Raul Jimenez started a second consecutive match for Wolves but couldn’t double his scoring total for the season as the club fell 2-0 to Leicester.Even then, it was a better day for the Mexican forwards in the Premier League than for El Tri defenders in Germany. Carlos Salcedo and Eintracht Frankfurt fell to a fourth-division side in the German cup, ending their defense of the trophy in the very first round. Salcedo was booked early and came off in the 78th minute of the embarrassing defeat.

Jaipur: Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot Friday said the country’s Constitution and democracy were under threat in BJP’s rule. Targeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, Gehlot said the duo ruled the country for five years and people do not even know the names of most of the union ministers. “The Constitution and democracy is under threat and this is my duty to tell you this. BJP leaders talked about Congress-free India and those who criticise them are considered as anti-national,” Gehlot said at a public meeting in Pali.

The chief minister said Modi was a good actor and should have been in the film industry. “Several promises like bringing back black money were made by Modi during the last elections but not a single rupee was brought back,” he said. Gehlot also accused former chief minister Vasundhara Raje of stalling development projects and weakening welfare schemes launched during his earlier term. The chief minister was addressing the rally in support of the Congress candidate from Pali Lok Sabha seat Badriram Jakhar. Pali is among the 13 constituencies which will vote on April 29. Elections on the remaining 12 seats of the state will be held on May 9.
