Would you do this to the men's team? Edulji and Shantha question the appointment of support staff for women
NEW DELHI: CoA member Diana Edulji and the new member of the upper council of BCCI Shantha Rangaswamy on Friday he questioned the unconstitutional appointment of support staff of the national women's team in a letter to the director general Rahul Johri .
GM (Cricket Operations) Saba Karim , who is in charge of women's cricket, is who is under the scanner for these appointments.
One day after the women's selection panel led by Hemlata Kala wrote to the CEO, claiming they were out of the hiring process of support staff, former Indian captains Edulji and Rangaswamy lashed out at the team's bad treatment national.
According to the BCCI constitution, the selectors must appoint the support staff of the national teams, both men and women. Due process was followed for the appointment of support staff of the men's team recently.
I am surprised to read the article citing the email of women selectors about the false process that is followed for the selection of the video analyst.
It is even more worrisome that the person Mr Pushkar Sawant, wanted by Saba Karim (GM cricket operations) and NCA is already booked on the flight to West Indies. The whole process looks like an eye wash, Edulji, who is set to demit office alongside two other CoA members, wrote in the letter, which is in possession PTI.
The selectors have claimed that they were not even kept informed about the appointment of the female bowling and fielding coach. They were only asked to conduct interviews for the role of a video analyst, for which the process ended on Friday.
Both Edulji and Rangaswamy claimed that the rules have been violated even for the role of the video analyst, although the application was invited in this case, unlike the case of the bowling and fielding coach.
NCA Bowling Trainer Narendra Hirwani and T Dilip will travel with the team to the West Indies, as bowling and fielding coach, respectively.
I have also received an e-mail from Shantha Rangaswamy, nominated member on the BCCI apex council, which has been marked to you and the selectors, namely she has stated that these things are been done deliberately to accommodate persons chosen by the powers that be and not following the established practices.
The article and the mail issued serious doubts and doubts about the treatment of cricket operations, especially Saba, who directs it and, despite repeated CoA instructions, is challenging and wants to place people in these positions without due process.
I am pointing this out to my colleagues so they are aware of what is happening behind the back of the CoA. I will not give my consent for this simulated interview that is taking place today for the video analyst, since Mr. Pushkar Sawant has already been nominated for the tour, Edulji wrote.
This is the Indian national team that is traveling and they are being treated so sadly. I wonder if you would do this to the men's team.
When PTI contacted Karim, who is at the center of all this controversy, he said: Since the mail has been addressed to the CEO, it is better to talk to him.
