The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are in the midst of a massive chaos after the key figures in BCCI, which forms the Finance Committee were in entire displeasure post the meeting on September 14th.
The meeting was called upon to discuss on some important aspects on fund allotments and player hikes. However, the members felt that they were nominal with the decisions being already taken by CoA and CEO Rahul Johri.
“Everything was already pre-decided, and the meeting was more about letting us know what decisions have been taken. If that’s the case, then why this sham?” the members fumed.
“These are matters on which discussions have already been concluded, and decisions have been taken. If that is the case, why call for this meeting? The committee had some questions for which answers are needed, otherwise why have a meeting at all? Decisions involving such huge financial transactions cannot be taken arbitrarily,” the members of the finance committee said.
“This agenda is not new. And neither is the fact that the CoA had conveyed on June 18 that their decisions are not subject to ratification. They’re only being shared for the purpose of transparency.”
“If everything needs to go through the finance committee, then a finance committee meeting needs to happen every week. You just can’t walk in once in months and ask why such and such decision was taken, especially if you don’t have the patience to listen to the answers,” they say.
