Sources said the JKCA office bearers were scheduled to hold a meeting on Tuesday about electing new cricketing body as the incumbent office bearers completed their term on July 18 .

Javaid Ahmad, Vice Chairman of the JKCA for Kashmir province, said the new body will be elected once the amendments are made into the cricketing body rules as per the Supreme Court guidelines.

“Imran Raza Ansari will continue to be its president while Iqbal Ahmad Shah as its General Secretary till new body is elected,” he said.

In June 2015, Farooq Abdullah was replaced by Imran Raza Ansari as the president of Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association. It ended the dominance of National Conference patron on the state’s cricketing body, who was the head of JKCA since 1980.

After two years, there is now infighting within the ruling PDP leaders, who are eying on JKCA’s president’s post and appoint their confidantes as its office bearers.

PDP leader, Mehboob Iqbal, who is JKCA chairman is keen to wrest full control on the cricketing body from minister for Youth Services and Sports Imran Raza Ansari citing the Supreme Court ruling. It has been learnt that a group of people is supporting Mehboob while another group is with Ansari.
