Bishan Singh Bedi on Friday lambasted a "feudalistic" BCCI for unceremoniously dumping former bowling coach Venkatesh Prasad and fielding coach Robin Singh.
The spin legend lashed out at the cricket board for the rude manner in which it sacked both the coaches, who learnt from the media that they had been axed.
"The BCCI does not have even basic etiquette. Not even a simple 'Thank You' was there (in the sacking message)," Bedi fumed while speaking at the launch of journalist C Rajshekhar Rao's book 'Dhoni'.
"This is feudalistic attitude. We don't seem to love it but we seem to live it," he rued, adding that "if a revolution has to come, it has to come through youngsters."
BCCI had issued a terse press release, saying both were not needed any more and an upset Prasad lamented why the news came via media and why the board did not bother to offer any explanation.
