The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has appointed Brijesh Patel as chairman of the ad-hoc committee which has been constituted to oversee the day-to-day affairs of Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA), which has been suspended by the Indian board. The BCCI had suspended RCA after Lalit Modi was appointed its president despite the board banning him for life.

The five-member ad-hoc committee was formed a few weeks back. Called the ‘Cricket Development’ committee, it has Amrit Mathur, BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary, Baroda’s Smarjithsinh Gaekwad and Lakshyaraj Singh as its members, besides Patel.

The committee will also look after the affairs in states such as Uttaranchal and Bihar where there’s dispute within the associations.

“This committee will not only look after Rajasthan but also states like Uttaranchal and Bihar. Keeping in mind the interests of the sport of cricket and in order to safeguard the best interests and welfare of the cricketers playing the game in different age-groups and their future, an ad-hoc committee has been constituted,” informed BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel.

The BCCI is scheduled to starts its cricketing season from October and with these associations tied up in legal battle, the committee will try and ensure smooth running of cricket administration.
