The three-member Cricket Advisory Committee of (CAC) off BCCI soon will be abolished as  a new committee is going to replace it.  BCCI is going to form a High-Performance Committee (HPC) . The Committee will recommend BCCI about new things to develop cricket and its infrastructure in India.  The proposal will get pussh for such a proposal at the annual general meeting in September.

At the annual conclave of BCCI, most of the unit members said that the CAC should be restructured.  Currently, the CAC is comprised of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, and VVS Laxman, who selected Anil Kumble as India’a coach.

“There have been preliminary discussions about expanding the scope of the Cricket Advisory Committee,” a State association official, who was part of the discussions, preferring anonymity, told The Hindu.

“One of the proposals is to merge the Technical Committee and the CAC into a High-Performance Committee. Whether the new committee will be additionally handed over the responsibility of liaising with the India and India-A teams is still not clear.”

If the proposal materialized  the HPCA could well have five to six members, including a coach from the National Cricket Academy, and a high profile cricket operations executive (COE) of the BCCI.  It is expected that recently retired cricketers could be approached to be included in the committee.

Sourav Ganguly, who is part of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC),  is also the head of the Technical Committee of BCCI. If the two committees merged, then the HPC will have to meet frequently instead of being what has predominantly been a cosmetic committee.

In 2015  the CAC was formed and met only once  during  Shashank Manohar’s recent seven-month tenure. It was even difficult to understand whether the CAC was in existence or not.  But as BCCI asked the committee to select the Indian coach the importance of the committee understood.

Though most of the BCCI members have welcomed   the move to  expand the committee, some are apprehensive about it.

However, one of the veteran BCCI mandarins said the role of the CAC needs to be well defined. “What is the role of involving the greats of the game if you don’t utilize them properly?” asked the official.

“The intent of expanding looks good but the purpose can be served only if you give the great cricketers a clear brief and then implement the measures suggested by them.”
