BCCI and CoA have not gone hand in hand since the Supreme Court’s decision regarding the oversees affairs of Indian Cricket. And there seems to be no stop in the conflict between the two as CoA has rejected the BCCI’s decision of appointing Milind Kanmadikar from the Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association (MPCA) as Team India manager for West Indies Tour of India just after the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
According to the CoA’s point of view, the team manager should not be temporary and not be changed every series. BCCI should hire a permanent manager. A top board secretary told TOI, “The manager’s job is not only to spend time in the changing room. His job is to ensure that a proper process is followed while picking a team or managing any sort of disagreement in the dressing room. The board appointed managers have failed to live up to the expectation.”
BCCI appointed Anil Patel replacing Kapil Malhotra for Champions Trophy. The CoA wants a permanent appointment for Team’s manager until at least the 2019 ODI World Cup.
