BCCI Gave Away Rs 4 Crore In Cash To Tokyo Olympic Medallists: Report
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) spent Rs 4 crore in giving cash awards to India's Tokyo Olympics medallists earlier this year, a report said. During its recent Apex Council meeting, the Indian cricket board revealed its expenditure on other stuff besides cricket to its members. As per the BCCI document, the board donated Rs 10 crore to the Indian Olympic Association to support the country's athletes competing at the Tokyo Olympic Games, a Times of India report said.
Earlier, late in March, the Indian cricket board felicitated Olympic champion Neeraj Chopra, bronze medallist Lovlina Borgohain and members of the bronze-medal-winning Indian men's hockey team before the IPL's opening match.
