Anurag Thakur's innings in BCCI; fast furious, short-lived

Shimla, Jan 3 (UITV/IANS)- Dethroned BCCI President Anurag Thakur's innings in Indian cricket was just like a T20 match -- fast furious but short-lived.

His music, like his fans would agree, has had a shelf life transcendig multiple decades -- irrespective of whether it was doled out when he began in 1981 as one half of pop duo Wham! with Andrew Ridgeley -- or when he became famous in his own right with his solo single "Careless whisper".

A rank outsider with no government or military experience, the Manhattan mogul demolished two political dynasties -- Bush and Clinton -- to pull off a stunning victory over his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton with only half her billion dollar war chest.
