Board of Control for Cricket in India Stunned as CoA Looks to Consider the Indian Premier League Roles for Shastri & Dravid
The move has in fact shocked even the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
BCCI officials have come in direct contrast to the recommendation of the Lodha Committee which is under the conflict of the interest clause.
That made it clear that the likes of Shastri and Dravid cannot be commentating dual role during the cash-rich league as they already hold prestigious positions with the national and ‘A’ team.
The Lodha panel recommendations had made it clear that contracted coaches should not perform dual roles as it amounts to the conflict of interest.
In fact, Dravid was given a 12-month contract in the year 2017 after his previous contract with the ‘A’ and U-19 teams was for 10-months, having a 2-month window for the Indian Premier League.
Speaking to CricketNext, a senior Board of Control for Cricket in India official members say “Chairman Of Association’s decision to take a relook at the conflict of interest rules that order to consider allowing Shastri and Dravid to commentate in the Indian Premier League is another evidence of the capricious conduct.
They have not honest to the job and have looked at everything through the prism of bias, and a result, though they are supervising the administration of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, their thinking is adversarial to the board, and this reeks of dishonesty in their actions.
A prime example is their main moto decision to disallow those disqualified from being office bearers to participate in even committee meetings of the Board of Control for Cricket in India while explicitly asking N Ram to be a part of the committee also though he is above 70 and disqualify to the office bearer.
Additionally, nothing can cost more hypocritical than Vinod Rai chairing the Chairman Of Association meeting despite having turned a sweet 70 while himself having spared no effort to disallow everyone else who is a shade over 70.
It is like the behavior of the child who needs to bat twice merely because he owns the bat.
Another official echoing the sentiments and says that the committee has not honest in carrying out the job at hand and that has to create the unwanted mess.
They have themselves stated that they agree with a few impracticalities like the presence of the CAG representative on the Board.
However, the insincerity in their conduct and shades of vindictiveness prevent them from truthfully expressing these issues, he explained.
The CoA in its meeting on April 12 decided that the head coach of the senior men’s team and the head coach of India ‘A’ and U-19 teams should not engage in commentating during the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League, but there is a twist.
The Chairman of Association was decided to separate on finds whether a submission should make to the Supreme Court to re-look the conflict of interest provisions under the draft memorandum of association and rules and regulations of Board of Control for Cricket in India. It is recommending by the Lodha committee insofar as the same is not in the interests of Indian cricket.
In other developments, the CoA has also decided to rework the fees of the curators. There are five zonal curators and five assistant curators who currently pay fees of Rs. 6 lakh per annum, and the associate curators are paid Rs. 4.2 lakh per annum.
The fee was fixed in the year 2012 and has not increased since then. It is deciding that the zonal curators will be given Rs 12 lakh while the assistant curators are given Rs 8.4 lakh.
Board of control for cricket in India is also finding to engaging more assistant curators as per the recommendation of General Manager Cricket Operations Saba Karim.
