In his letter to COA chief Vinod Rai, Verma, who is the secretary of Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), wrote: “Amitabh Chaudhary submitted an undertaking before the Apex Court that he has resigned from the post of President, Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) and he would be ensuring the implementation of the reforms.

As per Lodha Committee directive, Amitabh Chaudhary has completed more than three years as office bearer of JSCA and is not supposed to hold any post in his State association.

However, Verma alleged that Chaudhary convened a meeting of the Ranchi District Cricket Association.

“It is also noteworthy that Amitabh Chaudhary convened an Annual General Meeting of the Ranchi District Cricket Association as the Chairman of the Ranchi District Cricket Association. It is made clear that despite the undertaking, he is still holding the post of the Chairman of Ranchi District Cricket Association, a body affiliated to Jharkhand State Cricket Association.”
