New Delhi: In an attempt to safeguard the interest of Rajasthan cricketers, the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) in India has formed an ad-hoc committee for managing cricket affairs in the state.
The committee formed to ensure the participation of Rajasthan teams in various BCCI tournaments in the upcoming domestic season will be spearheaded by Amrit Mathur and will also include CK Khanna, Milind Kanmadikar, Snehal Parikh and PV Shetty.
Earlier, the BCCI had suspended the Rajasthan Cricket Association within hours of former IPL chief Lalit Modi being declared as its president two years ago.
Following the suspension, 75 players from the state had approached the Rajasthan High court and filed a writ petition for being denied a chance to play in the domestic season.
In light of the appointment of the committee, BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya said, "This step is in line with the BCCI philosophy of keeping the interest of cricket and the players on top priority."
"Like any other side playing domestic cricket in India, Rajasthan cricketers will have all the facilities, exposure and opportunities to perform and excel," he added.
