Bangalore: Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, who was elected president of the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) at its annual general meeting on Sunday, said it was after the last elections that he and Brijesh Patel, who was elected secretary, decided to bury the hatchet and come together .
“I have worked on this arrangement for the last three years. In fact, towards the end of 2008, Brijesh made a proposal that both of us should join hands,” he said.
Asked about his three-year agenda, Wadiyar said his team would try to reduce the financial burden of clubs.
The team would also upgrade the stadium to a world-class facility with modern lighting, drainage system and rainwater harvesting, he said.
Patel said the first priority was to see Karnataka doing well in Ranji Trophy and revive junior cricket.
Patel said bagging all 24 seats is a great mandate.
