Vinod Rai wants BCCI elections deferred by two weeks

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Vinod rai, the chairman of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA), and his colleague Lt Gen Ravi Thodge now want the elections of the Indian cricket board to be deferred by two weeks, the Times of India reported. 

This was conveyed by Rai to SC-appointed amicus curiae PS Narsimha on Monday, with Thodge’s approval, and the amicus, it is further learnt, has refused to cooperate, TOI stated.

“The amicus is not interested. He is very clear about what the Supreme Court order says. The order says even with a three-day notice, elections should go ahead. We can’t understand what is the CoA’s problem now, even when the SC has categorically ruled that elections should take place. The CoA can’t make this personal,” those follow-up developments told TOI.

In developments that none of the BCCI members are yet to apprehend, absolute confusion prevailed on Monday, September 23, and the news of Rai’s request to Narsimha – to defer the elections until November first week – came to the notice of BCCI members.

In fact, it is also learnt that CoA’s third member Diana Edulji, who has often found herself on the opposite side of Rai on multiple issues concerning the administration of the BCCI, is also not in favour of the elections being deferred.

Edulji is expected to write to the other two members of the COA on this matter and raise the matter with the amicus on Tuesday, September 24, to clearly express that she is not on board with her colleagues on this decision to defer elections.

“The BCCI’s September 20 order is very clear. It clearly says that disqualification applies only to office bearers and that the (state) elections can / should go ahead even with a three-day notice. So, where’s the confusion now?” sources trying to get a grip of developments said.

Until last week, it was the CoA and Rai in particular who was most vocal about elections being held within the given timeline as dictated by the CoA earlier. It was the CoA’s own word that all state associations should go ahead and conduct the elections after which a notice should be sent out for the AGM on October 21.

“Two weeks ago, a majority of the members had agreed to go ahead with their respective elections until the CoA issued an advisory that disqualification applies to committee members too. The associations suddenly stopped planning for elections and TNCA went to court. What was the need of that advisory? Now, when the members are okay with elections again, the CoA is once again throwing a spanner,” sources informed TOI. 

It is to be waited and seen if the amicus will file Rai’s request in the SC this week and further, if the SC will take up the application and look into it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Following Sunday’s IPL 2024 encounter between Mumbai and Chennai at the iconic Wankhede Stadium, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was delighted to meet MS Dhoni. Bumrah, who recently defeated RCB by taking five wickets, expressed his happiness by uploading a photo of himself with the former CSK skipper.

Shortly after the match, Bumrah entered the CSK dressing room and engaged in conversation with the great Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Since then, the video, which IPL posted on X, has been making the rounds on the Internet.

Sharing the image, Bumrah wrote, met Mahi bhai after so long, felt good to catch up. In the image the two were seen wearing their team’s jerseys while posing for camera.

Soon after Bumrah shared the image, it quickly went viral. A user said, love for the mini-reunion. A second user said two legends in one frame. A third user said want to see playing together. Others also dropped hearts and fire emojis in the comments section.

After hitting 3 sixes and an undefeated 20 off only 4 balls against MI, Dhoni made headlines. The 42-year-old took Hardik Pandya to task after coming out to bat in the final over of CSK’s innings, smacking the bowler for three straight sixes.

In response to Dhoni’s blow, Chennai scored an incredible 206 for 4. Then, after Matheesha Pathirana claimed four wickets, CSK restricted MI to 186 for 6.

Dhoni is without a doubt one of the greatest cricket players of all time, and this is evident in the manner that both current and previous players describe him.

The bowling coach for CSK Eric Simons praised Dhoni after the game for his ability to get off to a fast start.

It was remarkable that he was able to hit the first ball so hard for six and keep going. Throughout the preseason and into the tournament, he has been hitting incredibly effectively in the nets. Simons described it as just another amazing MS Dhoni moment, he said.

Meanwhile, Dhoni became the first Indian player to knock three consecutive sixes in the opening three balls of an IPL innings in addition to reaching 5000 runs for CSK.
