TOP SECRET: Who will take on Brijesh Patel?

Brijesh Patel has had a free run ever since he dislodged C. Nagaraj as the secretary of the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA). None of the players, none of the clubs, none of the factions have had the guts to take on Patel and his cabal, who have turned Karnataka cricket into a joke in the name of "player power".
