As per the constitution, the CIC is responsible for cricket-related appointments including the coach and selectors.

In the meeting, it was also decided that the MCA will wait for the guidelines from the Maharashtra government on the resumption of cricket amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “We will wait for the government guidelines and also wait for BCCI SOP before taking a call on resumption,” an MCA insider said.

The association is also set to continue with the services of its Chief Executive Officer (CEO) C.S. Naik, appointing him the executive secretary. His contract is supposed to end in October this year.
