NCA meeting postponed; Kapil in reckoning for Director post

New Delhi, Oct 11, 2012, PTI:

The BCCI has been forced to delay the first meeting of its National Cricket Academy (NCA) sub-committee as it is yet to finalise the name for the post of Director with another former captain Kapil Dev’s name coming into picture.

Former Indian captain Rahul Dravid is believed to be the front-runner for the post but he is still undecided on whether he should take up the offer and that is precisely the reason for the delay of the first sub-committee meeting.

“Rahul has been offered the role of a Director quite a few weeks back but he hasn’t got back. Normally, after the AGM, the first sub-committee meeting that is held is the one involving NCA.

But since BCCI is waiting for a positive response from Rahul, it has decided to have its first NCA meeting only after completion of Champions League Twenty20,” a senior BCCI official said. The second name that BCCI has thought about is that of Kapil Dev who has earlier been at the helm of NCA before he joined the now-defunct Indian Cricket League.

“Look, NCA’s role in development has been minimal in last few years and that’s the reason Anil Kumble resigned. Even Sandeep Patil had very little role during past season but when it comes to appointment, BCCI needs a big name. In case Rahul says ‘No’ then the senior officials are more keen on Kapil than More.” A section among board officials are not very keen on More’s appointment as they don’t want the former wicketkeeper to get a plum appointment within months of getting amnesty.

When pointed out that the same theory could apply with Kapil, he answered, “Absolutely not as Kapil Dev is in a different league.”
