Chhattisgarh has been an associate member for a long time now and with a state of-the art stadium in Raipur, are ready to enter the big league. The meeting was attended by Chhattisgarh Cricket Sangh (CCS) president Baldev Singh Bhatia.

However, in another interesting move Bihar Cricket Association (BCA), one of the warring factions in the state, was allowed to participate in the working committee meeting. Its secretary Mrityunjay Tiwary attended the meeting.

Interestingly, another unsanctioned Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), whose secretary Aditya Verma became the face of the IPL spot-fixing petition and anti N Srinivasan movement, was given a cold shoulder by the BCCI bigwigs.

In fact, Verma was not even invited for the meeting, while the rival faction now seems favourite to get associate membership status.
