Former India captain, Sourav Ganguly, is worried about latest turn of events in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). And on Tuesday, Ganguly, who also heads the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB), has written to three BCCI office-bearers — acting president, CK Khanna, acting secretary, Amitabh Choudhary, and treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry — to resurrect the image of the board, which he feels, has taken a beating under the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA).

In a letter to the office-bearers, which Sportstar has access to, the CAB chief has gone on explaining how BCCI’s reputation is in danger. He has also expressed his concerns over the way the CoA has handled the allegations of sexual harassment against BCCI CEO Rahul Johri.

“I don’t know how far it’s true, but the recent reports of harassment has really made the BCCI look poor, more so the way it has been handled. The committee of CoA from four has come down to two and now the two seems to be divided,” Ganguly wrote.

CoA chief Vinod Rai wanted an independent investigation to the matter, while co-member Diana Edulji was not on the same page, wanting Johri to be immediately removed from the position of CEO.

Ganguly, also the head of the technical committee, has spoken about the sudden change of rules in domestic cricket as per the whims and fancies of the CoA.

“The committee of CoA has come down to two and now the two seems to be divided...Cricketing rules are changed in the middle of a season, which has never been heard of. Decisions made in the committees are turned around with complete disrespect, my experience in the matter of coach selection was appalling (the less said the better),” Ganguly wrote.

This comes after the CoA decided to relax the one-year rule for wards of government employees to be considered local players recently. Not only was the move made mid-season, but also done without keeping the technical committee in the loop.
