“There are a few issues that NE states’ representatives needs clarity on. The major issue is when would their cooling off period start. They were not full voting members before 2018. So they have a valid claim that their tenure should start with this year’s state association elections and cooling off starts after three years,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

Another teething issue is release of funds so that they can carry on with their infrastructure development and conduct local matches.

“They need funds but as the amicus has pointed out that after scrutiny, if they are found compliant, release of funds shall not be a problem,” the official said.
