BCCI President Saurabh Ganguly on Sunday said that a full-time Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) is not needed as it has to play a limited role. He said that only one or two meetings of the CAC were required. The BCCI on Sunday postponed the appointment of CAC and Ganguly said that the issue of conflict of interest conflict was coming in, which the COA also found difficult to implement.
Veterans Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Ganguly had to resign from the CAC themselves as they were accused of conflict of interest. Ganguly told the media after the board's AGM, 'CAC does not have much work. We keep talking about the CAC, but the job of this committee is to appoint selectors and coaches. So once you appoint a selection committee, it remains for four years and when you appoint a coach, it stays for three years. So why the need to have a full time CAC?
Ganguly said, 'As of now it is CAC honorary post, so on what basis you will pay even if you pay. It does not have regular work. So if there is a conflict of interest in CAC, I do not think it will be better or not. There is only one meeting in it.
