Former India captain Dilip Vengsarkar was nominated as a representative of the Mumbai Cricket Association for future BCCI forums in the AGM of the state unit, which incidentally was not attended by President Vijay Patil or Secretary Sanjay Naik, which questioned the validity of the meeting. In fact, Naik told PTI that “there was no AGM today and it has been postponed. We are not aware of any such meetings.” However, 109 authorized signatories attended the meeting convened by the opposition faction led by the Ravi Sawant-Ravi Mandrekar group, which effectively overturned all decisions of the ruling dispensation.
It is still unclear whether Saturday’s meeting, which the rival faction names as “AVA”, will be recognized or not, as only treasurer Jagdish Achrekar of the ruling group attended but did not sign the minutes.
Numerous notable decisions were also made at MCA’s 85th AGM, including the dissolution of the all-important Cricket Improvement Committee (CIC), made up of three former Indian players in Vinod Kambli, Jatin Paranjape and Nilesh Kulkarni, as they were dissatisfied with their performance. in white ball tournaments.
Curiously, the senior selection committee headed by Salil Ankola has been retained despite selecting those teams for white ball tournaments.
The “General Instance” also appointed a new Ombudsman — Retd. Justice Bhosle of Allahabad High Court.
The minutes of the 84th AGM have not been accepted while the auditor has changed for the following financial year.
In fact, the “general body” has not adopted a single report, not even that of the secretary and treasurer. The Secretary’s report has in fact been referred back to the Apex Council for reformulation.
The new MCA GC chairman will be Milind Narvekar, while Nilesh Bhosle is now a member of the board of directors.
It remains to be seen whether the ruling faction, led by Patil and Naik, will recognize the decisions taken as they are the ones representing the state in the BCCI forum.
