New Delhi, Jan 9 (UNI) The BCCI today hoped of a positive response from the ICC in the controversy over the ban on spinner Harbhajan Singh for racial abuse, saying the decision should be acceptable to India and its people.
''We have conveyed our position to the ICC on the issue and are confident that they will come up with something which will be acceptable to India and the people of the country,'' BCCI Vice-President Rajiv Shukla told newspersons on the sidelines of a function here.
He said the Indian Board had a very cordial relationship with Cricket Australia. ''We are sure that the recent controversy over the Sydney test will not affect cricketing ties between the two nations,'' Mr Shukla added.
The BCCI Vice-President said the morale of the Indian cricketers was high and they were looking forward to playing the game in a positive manner in the remaining part of the series in Australia.
