BCCI state associations tell CoA one-state-one-vote is a major issue
Continuing their opposition to some of the Lodha Committee reforms, the BCCI state associations on Sunday told the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that one-state- one-vote was the major point of contention among the three recommendations they are opposed to.
Mumbai: Continuing their opposition to some of the Lodha Committee reforms, the BCCI state associations on Sunday told the Committee of Administrators (CoA) that one-state-one-vote was the major point of contention among the three recommendations they are opposed to.
The CoA headed by Vinod Rai, met the representatives of various state associations at the BCCI headquarters in South Mumbai in batches.
"Two, three reservations were discussed. One state-one vote, selection committee and cooling off period of nine years. Age tenure is not that much a major issue," a source said.
Ousted BCCI president N Srinivasan attended the meeting as a representative of the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA).
According to sources, Srinivasan did not raise the issue of ICC's new revenue share model but is most likely to speak about it during Special General Meeting on Monday.
Meanwhile, acting BCCI Secretary Amitabh Choudhary refused to comment on appointment of the new coach, saying a Committee was there to look into it.
Asked if the captain will be consulted, Choudhary said, "That's for the committee to decide".
Former India skipper and Cricket Association of Bengal President Sourav Ganguly, who is part of Cricket Advisory Commitee (CAC) also refused comment on the issue.
"I have got nothing to say, it depends on directions. I understand you want all these things from me but at this point it is difficult for me to answer," said Ganguly.
Asked kind of coach you want, pat came the reply, "the one who can win matches".
It is also reliably learnt that former skipper Rahul Dravid is expected to visit the BCCI HQ on Monday.
But when asked about it to Ganguly, he said he was not aware about any such development.
'Belligerent, vendetta driven', says Mohammad Azharuddin after HCA apex council suspends his presidency
The former India skipper termed the move as vendetta against him by the anti-lobby and vowed to fight back.
Recently, the ICC had announced that the Champions Trophy, which hasn't been held after 2017 in England, will be revived during the next FTP cycle and accordingly India has decided to bid for it.
Now in charge of the National Cricket Academy, Dravid has played a key role in producing the next generation of cricketers and a reserve pool which is the envy of India's opponents.
