Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) President Anil Kumble and Secretary Javagal Srinath, who are not contesting this year's elections, today announced their support to a team headed by industrialist Sadananda Maiya.

Speaking to reporters here, Kumble said Maiya and his team will fight the December 1 elections against Srikantadatta Wodeyar-Brijesh Patel team.

Maiya will slug it out against Wodeyar, the scion of the Mysore Royal family for the President's post, Kumble said adding that former Test umpire A V Jayaprakash will contest against Patel for Secretary's post.

Kumble also announced the Cricket Working Group consisting of himself, Rahul Dravid, Gundappa Vishwanath, Syed Kirmani, Srinath, Venkatesh Prasad, Roger Binny and Sunil Joshi.
