Former India skipper, Sourav Ganguly was concerned after the latest turn of events in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). On Tuesday, the head of the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), has written to three BCCI office-bearers — acting president, CK Khanna, acting secretary, Amitabh Choudhary, and treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry — to revive the image of the board, which he feels, has suffered a damage under the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA).

As per the reports of Sportstar, in his letter to the office-bearers, the CAB chief went on to explain explaining how the image of BCCI is in danger. He has also expressed his concerns over the way the CoA has handled the accusations of sexual harassment against BCCI CEO Rahul Johri.

Ganguly letter read: “I don’t know how far it’s true, but the recent reports of harassment have really made the BCCI look poor, more so the way it has been handled. The committee of CoA from four has come down to two and now the two seems to be divided.”

CoA chief Vinod Rai wanted an independent investigation of the case, while his co-member Diana Edulji was not on the same page, wanting Johri to be immediately sacked from the position of CEO. Ganguly, also the head of the technical committee, has spoken about the abrupt change of rules in domestic cricket as per the irrational actions of the CoA.

Dada further added, “The committee of CoA has come down to two and now the two seems to be divided…Cricketing rules are changed in the middle of a season, which has never been heard of. Decisions made in the committees are turned around with complete disrespect, my experience in the matter of coach selection was appalling (the less said the better).”

Sourav’s concerns are the aftermath of CoA’s decision to relax the one-year rule for the wards of government employees to be considered local players recently. Not only was the move made mid-season, but also done without keeping the technical committee in the loop.
