Abdi to be RCA’s voice now

Jaipur: Rajasthan Cricket Association on Friday appointed Mehmood Abdi to present its case before the BCCI Working Committee which is likely to discuss in its meeting in Chennai on Saturday the fallout of former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi’s possible return as president of the RCA.

Modi, who has been banned for life by the BCCI, was allowed to fight for the post of RCA president in the December 19 elections, held under the supervision of a Supreme Court-appointed observer.

The results of the polls are expected to be known on January 6 when the matter relating to the RCA comes up for hearing before the Supreme Court.

The BCCI, meanwhile, had issued a warning to RCA stating that it would lose benefits from the BCCI if the banned former IPL commissioner was allowed to remain an office bearer in any of its units.

Fearing punitive action from the BCCI, the RCA executive committee met here on Friday and appointed Modi loyalist and president of Ganganagar District Association, Mehmood Abdi, to represent its case to the BCCI.

“The RCA is not a member of the BCCI Working Committee and neither it has been invited to attend the meeting but we feel that the RCA matter would be discussed and we should put across our position,” said Abdi. (PTI)
