 Of course, the reaction is one of disappointment, because that's exactly what we'd not like to see but I think we must have perspective. It was a minor incident.

 We have felt in the past few years that Twenty20 is the best format to develop the game world-wide and it provides a better environment for competition. The 50-over format is more skill-based and suitable for the top teams.

 I am confident for two reasons. The main one is that the vast majority of players are honest players. They do play the game in the spirit that it should be played. They are not seeking to make gains out of untoward means. Secondly, we are alive to what could come to the fore in terms of corruption. We have measures in place, and people forget we had been tracking this long before the News of the World had broken the story.

 We are very lucky to have such an extraordinary player as Sachin supporting our flagship event. I don't think any other player has inspired a nation like he has and the respect and affection he enjoys goes way beyond his native India. Many other athletes and sports fans around the globe admire what he consistently achieves and what he does for cricket.

 In the last 14 months India has been dominating the world. In October 2008 India was ranked third in ICC Test Championships and in the last 14 months it has risen to No. 1. It would be fantastic if South Africa and India, the world's two top teams, play each other in February.

 In the ODIs, India is now ranked number two. Then you have Gautam Gambhir at the top of the ICC Test batsmen's rankings while Dhoni is on top in the ODI chart. Dhnoi is the ICC ODI Player of the Year for two consecutive years and chosen captain of both the ICC Tests and ODI teams of the Year. Then you have Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid whose contribution is invaluable. India has players, who, after a few years, will be considered as legends of the game.
