Decision taken at CAU’s Apex Council meeting, decision on other points also
Cricket Association of Uttarakhand (CAU) will get a new secretary in the first week of March. The decision was taken at a meeting of the Association Apex Council on Wednesday. Apart from this, many other points were also decided. During this period, there was also a sharp furor among the members on many issues.
On the second day of the Apex Council meeting, the discussion about the post of Secretary was put first. The post has been vacant since outgoing secretary Mahim Verma became BCCI vice-president. Council members demanded a decision on this soon. He said that there are a large number of people in the association, who have been working for cricket for years.
They should now be given a chance to work. However, no name could be agreed on the post of secretary. There was no doubt among the members about this. The council then decided to complete the election process by the first week of March.
CAU President Jot Singh Gunasola said that suggestions and proposals will be sought from all districts for improving district level cricket. He also approved the proposal to mark the location for Cricket Training Center and Academy.
The council said that the workshop would be organized to promote cricket in the state and improve the quality level of local umpires, coaches, scorers and other support staff. Members also discussed about organizing the Vijji Trophy. It was also agreed to hold the AGM in March.
During the meeting, there was a tussle among the members regarding the expenditure. Most of the members accused of not having transparency in spending. He also expressed his displeasure at arbitrary spending. Members also questioned the process of purchasing goods and the expenses incurred during the tour. He said that BCCI has empaneled the vendor.
Teams performance review
At the meeting, Apex Council also reviewed the performance of all the teams in the state in the board trophy. He expressed his displeasure at the performance of the Ranji team. He said that the team which played for the first time last year performed well. However, the promotion of the team from the plate last year has also affected the performance of the team.
