JAMMU: The BCCI appointed three-member Sub-Committee of the Jammu & Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) has announced the formation of Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) which includes two former J&K captains.
“The JKCA today unanimously approved the formation of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) for the cricketing season 2021-22,” an official JKCA statement said Monday.
“The CAC comprises a three-member panel of ex senior cricketers of J&K and includes Abdul Qayoom Bagaw, Ashwani Gupta, both ex-Ranji players and Captains of J&K team, and Roopali Slathia, the most prominent woman cricketer and the only level 3 coach in J&K. The CAC will work as a team and report to the Sub-Committee,” the statement added.
“Besides appointing men’s/women’s selection committees, the CAC will also evolve norms for the fair and transparent process and also do a periodic review of the selectors/coaches/support staff/match officials and forward their recommendations to the Sub-Committee,” it said.
The members of the CAC were handed over their appointment letters duly signed by Mithun Manhas, Sub-Committee member of JKCA.
“The Sub-Committee expects that CAC will create an environment in which every deserving cricketer gets an opportunity to display his/her talent and only the best gets the honour to represent the JK UT team,” the JKCA said.
“It is hoped that with the appointment of CAC, transparency and fairness will get prominence and restore the confidence of the players both men and women in the system,” the statement concluded with comments from Brig. Anil Gupta, and advocate Sunil Sethi, the other members of the JKCA Sub-Committee.
