Coach not appointed because he didn’t say ‘hello’ to CAC chairman, alleges Irfan Pathan

CricketCoach not appointed because he didn’t say ‘hello’ to CAC chairman, alleges Irfan Pathan

Former Barda cricketer Connor Williams wasn’t appointed Baroda’s coach because he didn’t greet “hello” to chairman Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) Kiran More, Irfan Pathan alleged in a letter.

The Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) which has More as its chairman CAC and Pathan as one of its members had met recently to appoint a new coach of the Baroda team. Pathan was keen to have a local coach going forward this season and he had suggested former Baroda player Connor Williams’ name for the head coach role. However, CAC didn’t agree to it.

“I am writing to bring to your attention a matter of utmost concern that unfolded during today’s CAC meeting. It is with great disappointment that I witnessed a particular incident involving a Baroda cricket member that is contributing to the downfall of our esteemed institution. The actions and statements made by Kiran More during the meeting have left me deeply unsettled,” Pathan wrote in a long letter as reported by Indian Express.

“More’s assertion that he will obstruct Connor Williams from joining the coaching setup of the Baroda Ranji team simply because of a perceived lack of greeting (“He doesn’t say Hello to me”) is, in my opinion, an absurd and petty justification. This kind of behavior is unbecoming of a senior figure like More, and it reflects poorly on the values we hold as an organization.”

“Williams himself is a Ranji Trophy champion and has dedicated over a decade of his life to representing Baroda cricket. It is only fitting that we acknowledge and respect his contributions. Our institution is bigger than any individual, and it is imperative that we remember this fundamental principle.” The letter read.

“It is essential that we foster an environment of professionalism, respect, and fairness within our organization. Let us not allow personal grievances and insignificant disagreements to hinder the progress and unity of Baroda cricket. And this all happened in front of the Baroda Cricket CEO,” he concluded.
