Caught in an imbroglio, the present office bearers of Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) suffered another setback on Friday as the Jammu and Kashmir High Court appointed two administrators to look after the association's affairs.

Retired Supreme Court judge C. K. Prasad and retired Chief Justice of Madhya Pradesh High Court, Bahsir-Ud-Din, have been appointed as the administrators who would be keeping an eye on all the affairs at the JKCA.

The High Court also ordered the two administrators to ensure that fresh elections are held at the association within two months. This didn't go well with most of the JKCA office bearers but they tried putting up a brave face. "We have heard about it, but we haven't received a copy of the order yet. Once we get that tomorrow, we will be in a better position to discuss about it," JKCA secretary Iqbal Shah told Sportstar from Srinagar on Friday.

The JKCA has been in the news recently for the wrong reasons. Last month, it had threatened to pull out of the Ranji Trophy accusing the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) of not releasing the funds. CoA member Vinod Rai shot back asking the JKCA not to mislead the people. Things didn't turn out well ahead of the Ranji Trophy too. While it delayed the team selection, team's coach Mithun Manhas opted out of the side's opening fixture following 'differences' with captain Parvez Rasool. The JKCA officials had claimed that the issue was sorted out and Manhas would join the team for its second match against Saurashtra, which begins on Saturday. That, however, didn't happen. With Manhas remaining absent, Shah came up with a new statement, claiming that Manhas would "join the team after Diwali". But now with the administrators taking charge, things are expected to change in the next few weeks.
