No new faces at DDCA after elections

The Annual General Meeting of the Delhi & Districts Cricket Association was expected to rein in the all-powerful sports committee.

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Delhi & Districts Cricket Association was expected to rein in the all-powerful sports committee. As the results to the DDCA executive committee (EC) came in on Friday,it was evident there would be status quo,after all.

CK Khanna and Sneh Bansal were both successful in getting their favourites elected to the EC. The only new face was Pradeep Kashyap,returning after a term’s gap.

The main agenda for the meeting was the 23(a) amendment,proposed to give the executive committee discretionary powers to “increase or decrease the number of members of the sports committee”. But it was left to the end of the day’s proceedings,and with good reason: It was successfully opposed by committee members,the word “discretionary” from the original draft was expunged,and the sports committee,often seen as the centre of all the wrongdoings in DDCA,once again came out trumps.

“When the matter was raised the sports committee did not oppose it,they merely wanted minor changes in it. And it is wrong to think that the executive is the supreme body of our association. Being a former convener of the sports committee,I can tell you that the roles of the various committees — the executive committee,the sports committee and the clubs committee — are not defined,” claimed DS Bawa,re-elected to the executive committee.
