BCCI looking for representatives in ICC committees

As they are already in the process to reclaim their lost ground in the International Cricket Council (ICC), the Board of Control for Cricket in India will now be looking at having representatives in the important committees.

The BCCI officials have a feeling that the Indian precesence in ICC committees is negligible.

“It is something that everyone understands. Considering the stature and position of our board in the world of cricket, the BCCI ought to have a bigger voice in the ICC,” said a BCCI official.

“Framing policies or taking important decisions can’t happen without the BCCI having a say in it. In the present scenario, that is not happening. The other boards also realise it,” he added.

It is to be noted that apart from the Board of Directors and Executive Board which have representatives from each of the 12 full members, the ICC also has 13 other committees. Though there are player representatives like Anil Kumble (cricket committee), Saba Karim and Mithali Raj (both women’s committee), there is nobody from BCCI in exception of them.

There is no process of election for the members to these committess. Rather the ICC top brass headed by chairman Shashank Manohar nominate theem.

Meanwhile, the BCCI president Sourav Ganguly on Friday (January 17) regused to comment on Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s omission from annual central contract list.

“I can’ comment on this,” said Ganguly in a sharp manner.

It is understood that Dhoni has been left out due for not playing any cricket for six months. However there is still possibility for him to take part in the ICC World T20 2020 in Australia later this year.BBC
