Srinagar: In a major decision that will be having a major impact on the development of cricket at State level, BCCI has taken a decision to monitor appointment of Physio’s and Trainees at State level.
As per report, after witnessing a spate of injuries to contracted players with many breaking down after being selected for national duty, BCCI in its Special AGM has decided that any future appointment of state physios and trainers will be done by the National Cricket Academy (NCA).
“All interviews will be conducted by NCA. Once contracts expire, new appointments will be made by NCA,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah said after its special general meeting. “In simple words there will be 38 Nitin Patels (who is the head of Sports Science at NCA),” Report said.
Meanwhile the deadlock over the Asia Cup dates and venues continues.
Jay Shah, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) chairman, will hold talks with officials of Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lankan cricket boards on the sidelines of Sunday’s IPL final.
“When it comes to India-Pakistan matters, neither India nor Pakistan has been hosting the Asia Cup,” a BCCI official said.
Shah said he expected a resolution soon and that “in a week to 10 days an emergent ACC meeting will be called.”
The SGM authorised office-bearers to appoint a World Cup organising committee, Women’s Premier League sub-committee and Grounds and Infrastructure committee. BCCI’s Prevention of Sexual Harassment (POSH) policy was tabled and will be finalised by the AGM.
