As one would expect, Fred's life story has been replayed once again and it was here buried within the small print that we found something extremely momentous hidden within the nether regions of his CV. Something that will have delighted cricket fans everywhere, especially those with a distaste for the IPL and those that advocate the DRS.
Believe it or not, the man widely known as Fred the Shred once took charge of liquidating the BCCI.
Hold it just a moment. Quell your joy and enthusiasm.
Sadly, the BCCI in question was the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, and not the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
Now that would have been have been worthy of a knighthood that could never be taken away.
