Several cricket associations in India are now raising their voices against the new complimentary policy. The cricket associations of Mumbai, Chennai, and Kolkata strongly objected the new policy while stating that the ‘restricted entitlement of complimentary passes is not enough for them’. But, Vinod Rai already assured that there will be no disruption to upcoming India vs. West Indies matches as they have their backup plans ready.
The chief of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Vinod Rai, said “We’ve no doubt about the policy. Whether or not any association is able to stage the games, the schedule won’t be disrupted. The matches will be held as per the plan,” and added “We’ve back-up plans ready. Our professional team of Rahul Johri, Hemang Amin and Saba Karim are working towards this.”
The Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) will soon take its decision to organize the upcoming 11th November’s Twenty20 international between West Indies and India as they already held an internal meeting Wednesday. Recently, Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) has sought 10 crore INR in advance to organize that match. Besides, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) is supposed to host the 4th November’s game but they are now also in objection to the new policy.
Rai, while talking about his take on the associations, stated “These associations have given compliance to the new constitution and now how can raise objection to the policy that has been clearly outlined the new constitution,” and added “We have associations willing to host the games. The schedule won’t be disrupted.”
