Mumbai senior selector Milind Rege and Wankhede Stadium curator Sudhir Naik have refused to be a part of the Cricket Improvement Committee (CIC).
The Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) had issued a letter to Rege and Naik asking them to decide between being a CIC member or hold on to their current positions.
Rege decided to remain a selector and Naik is keen to stay as Wankhede pitch consultant.
“We had asked them to decide on any one position. They have written to us that they would not like to be a part of the CIC,” MCA Joint Honorary Secretary Nitin Dalal told mid-day yesterday.
The formation of CIC has been controversial after the Managing Committee decided not to include any of its members into CIC. This resulted in cricketers like Lalchand Rajput, Abey Kuruvilla and Sanjay Patil being detached from the CIC. The Managing Committee decided to include office-bearers as part of CIC.
CIC, which includes cricketers like Ajit Agarkar, Ajit Wadekar, Madhav Apte and Vinod Kambli, will take all decisions related to Mumbai’s cricketing matters.
