BCCI reacts strongly after COA vetoes proposed D/N Test
new delhi: The BCCI has reacted sharply to the Committee of Administrators red-flagging a proposed Day/Night Test match against the West Indies in October despite positive feedback from national chief coach Ravi Shastri.
The proposed match became a contentious issue after COA chief Vinod Rai complained of being kept in dark about the plan.
BCCI Acting Secretary Amitabh Chaudhary, CEO Rahul Johri and GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim were in touch with Shastri regarding the Test match.
Shastri has told the Board that he would ideally like a tier II team (West Indies) to be hosted in a tier II city and one session be played under lights to counter the dew factor in early winter.
Rai's angry missive, directed at Chaudhary, for not keeping COA in the loop has raised eyebrows about
the scope and role of the Supreme Court-appointed committee.
When senior officials in BCCI were asked about Rai's letter, there were mixed responses.
