Ra­jat Sharma to rep­re­sent DDCA at BCCI meet­ing

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Sport - TIMES NEWS NET­WORK

New Delhi: The Delhi and Dis­trict Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion (DDCA) has nom­i­nated its pres­i­dent Ra­jat Sharma as its rep­re­sen­ta­tive to at­tend the up­com­ing In­dian cricket board (BCCI) an­nual gen­eral meet­ing (AGM) on Oc­to­ber 23. BCCI is slated to elect its apex coun­cil as per re­formed con­sti­tu­tion on the same day.

In a res­o­lu­tion passed by the DDCA apex coun­cil on Thurs­day, 12 out of the 16 mem­bers, have backed Sharma’s name as their sole rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the BCCI meet­ings and take part (as voter mem­ber) in the board’s elec­tions as and when held.

The res­o­lu­tion thwarted DDCA sec­re­tary Vinod Ti­hara’s at­tempt to be the as­so­ci­a­tion’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive at the board. The mem­bers through their res­o­lu­tion also cau­tioned BCCI against the “self-nom­i­na­tion” of Ti­hara as the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of DDCA. The res­o­lu­tion, while point­ing out to his anti-DDCA ac­tiv­i­ties, fur­ther stated that Ti­hara is ‘not a per­son fit or ap­pro­pri­ate for such a re­spon­si­ble role as DDCA rep­re­sen­ta­tive.’

HCA re­tains all of­fice-bear­ers

Haryana Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion has re­tained all of its of­fice-bear­ers af­ter con­duct­ing its elec­tions on Thurs­day. HCA elected Kul­tar Ma­lik, Mir­nal Ojha, Ma­hen­der Singh as pres­i­dent, sec­re­tary and trea­surer re­spec­tively be­sides elect­ing four other mem­bers in the apex coun­cil. All three had com­pleted just two years in of­fice. How­ever, the state gov­ern­ment had tele­phonic dis­cus­sion with the CoA about the non­com­pli­ance of the as­so­ci­a­tion while the BCCI awaits a re­vised con­sti­tu­tion from HCA by Fri­day.
