Aditya Verma, the secretary of the Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), has lodged a complaint with the Board’s Ombudsman AP Shah that the BCCI’s joint secretary, Amitabh Choudhary, has conflict of interest and wanted it to be looked into.
Ombudsman Shah, on his part, has given BCCI time till February 20 to file its reply to the CAB secretary’s complaint, said Verma at a media conference in Mumbai today after distributing the copy of his complaint to Shah and the latter’s communication granting time to the Board to respond.
Verma, in his communication to Shah, has said that the question of recognition of the CAB and rival body Bihar Cricket Association was pending before the Supreme Court.
“It is also brought to your kind attention that the dispute over the recognition of the Cricket Association of Bihar is related to the recognition accorded to the Jharkhand Cricket Association, whose president, Amitabh Choudhary, is currently the Joint Secretary of the Board,” Verma has written.
