The meeting of the selection committee got postponed on Friday and another date was settled upon after the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators(CoA) chose to twist the long-standing guideline of The Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) where the board secretary remained as the convenor for all determination exchanges.
Nonetheless, the CoA gave over that capacity to the head of selectors, MSK Prasad.
According to several reports, a delay in the process happened due to the COA’s directive.
‘The change in the rule announced by the CoA means that the Secretary will not convene the meeting and that is behind the delay as that has led to some complexities which need to be addressed,’ a BCCI source was quoted as saying.
A senior BCCI official during a meeting brought up issues over the three-part CoA, including Vinod Rai, Diana Edulji and Lt Gen Ravi Phodge for not monitoring the board’s constitution.
‘The new Constitution of the BCCI has been mandated by the Supreme Court and in that regard, it is correct that it must be followed. Why did it dawn on the CoA now after nearly about a year since it was registered? What triggered this awakening? Do they not know what is happening in the board?’ the authority said.
Team India begin their Windies series with two T20Is in Florida on August third and fourth, before moving out to the Caribbean for the final T20I on August sixth, trailed by 3 ODI matches on August eighth, eleventh and fourteenth. The two groups will at that point lock horns for two Test matches, from August 22nd at North Sound and on August 30th in Jamaica.
