Hyderabad Cricket Association Refuses To Host Bangladesh Test
Hyderabad Cricket Association (HCA) has given the BCCI jitters as the state board has refused to host the Test match against Bangladesh, which is scheduled to be played in the city from February 8 to 12. The state board has cited lack of funds the reason for not being able to host the Test.
Meanwhile, the N.Srinivasan-led Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) has refused to host two-match series between India and England Under 19, which is to be played from February 13 to 24. The state board has written a letter to the BCCI in which they have shown their incapability to host the games due to various domestic programs during the period. Here is the copy of letter –
But it is to be noted that N Srinivasan writing a letter to BCCI is itself a contempt of court as he is not eligible to hold his post of the TNCA President, as per the Lodha recommendations. The letter was issued by TNCA after a meeting between N.Srinivasan and Anurag Thakur. It can be viewed through a prism of non-corporation which the state board is trying to show against the Lodha Panel, which has now acquired a full control ove ther BCCI after the order of the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court of Indian on January 2, sacked Anurag Thakur from the post of BCCI President and also removed Ajay Shirke as the Secretary of the board. In latest progress, it has been learnt that 21 state associations have fallen in line and accepted the Lodha recommendations. Many administrators and office bearers have also resigned from their post since the Supreme Court’s judgement on January 2.
England under 19 team is scheduled to tour India for five-ODIs and two youth Test matches from January 30 to February 24.
