MUMBAI: It sounds as if the direction of of desire of Amol Muzumdar as the head coach of the Mumbai senior employees has no longer long previous down well with two participants of the Mumbai Cricket Association‘s (MCA) Apex Council, who are miffed with the MCA‘s discipline of work-bearers, particularly the secretaries, for no longer preserving them in the loop concerning the same. The concern is living to approach reduction up for discussion at the MCA’s Apex Council assembly on June 11.
In separate emails (TOI is in possession of every and each emails) to MCA secretaries Sanjay Naik and Shahalam Sheikh, Apex Council participants Unmesh Khanvilkar, a stale secretary of the association, and Ajinkya Naik conveyed their displeasure at no longer being consulted or educated at some level of the direction of of Muzumdar’s appointment as Mumbai coach.
In his electronic mail, Khanvilkar wrote: “I congratulate Muzumdar for being named as the coach of the Mumbai senior employees for the 2021-22 season. Or no longer it is a pleasure to grasp him as coach of the Mumbai senior employees. On the opposite hand, I counsel that we must light no longer simplest limit him to simplest the senior employees of the association, nonetheless we must light comprise him in grooming the skill for the long term.”
“At the same time, I would make a choice to specialise in my affirm displeasure and resentment by the secretaries relating to the angle in direction of the apex participants. We all are elected participants of the association nonetheless there would possibly be constantly a silent divided line between the discipline of work-bearers and the committee participants. In definite decisions, we as Apex participants had been categorically eager and opinions had been sought when wanted.
“On the opposite hand, now we had a direction of performed for the head coach and desire of the same as well nonetheless there would possibly be NO total verbal change or info electronic mail relating to the same. I would make a choice to specialise in my affirm displeasure and resentment by the secretaries relating to the angle in direction of the Apex participants. We all are elected participants of the association nonetheless there would possibly be constantly a silent divided line between the discipline of work-bearers and the committee participants. Will we Apex participants exist for you? Or no longer it is most disheartening to know that this kind of must-grasp info admire desire (no longer even the names) and finalization of the Mumbai senior employees’s coach doesn’t reach us Apex council participants as well-behaved verbal change. I’m hoping to grasp a reply. I also demand you to catch this electronic mail for the discussion at some level of the upcoming Apex Council assembly on 11th June 2021.”
Reiterating the beneficial properties highlighted by Khanvilkar, Naik wrote: “As an elected Apex Council member of MCA, I basically grasp bump into definite decisions being taken by the secretary of the association without following the structure/structure of the association and the non-observance of primitive put together and the intention prescribed therein. That one such instance which I would make a choice to carry to your peek, is the appointment of the coach, which has been performed in an arbitrary blueprint without following the procedural tips. It’s miles learnt through media reports that Muzumdar has been appointed as coach in an arbitrary blueprint, without taking approval of the Apex Council in a assembly or through electronic mail. Furthermore, the acknowledged appointment used to be never communicated to the participants of the association.”
Muzumdar’s appointment would “discipline a elephantine monetary burden on the MCA, with the domestic season unsure,” wrote Naik. “Within the no longer too long ago held BCCI AGM, the delivery of the domestic season wasn’t even discussed. All of it depends on the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Primarily, the BCCI terminated a couple of contracts because they’re no longer definite of the domestic season. Whereas the credentials of Muzumdar are no longer unsure, in my peek making any novel appointment in this say will likely be a elephantine monetary burden on MCA with the domestic cricket season unsure,” acknowledged Naik in his verbal change.
“It’s a matter of grave concern that the organization is being speed in a blueprint prejudicial to the hobby of the association. Furthermore it is some distance learnt that definite standing committees were formed without consulting and appealing the Apex Council participants. The aforesaid actions are opposite to your total democratic system on which the association has been constructed,” Naik concluded.
Responding to the allegations of these Apex Council participants, MCA secretary Sanjay Naik told TOI: “The Mumbai coach is appointed by the MCA’s Cricket Enchancment Committee (CIC) as per the offer of the structure and no longer the discipline of work-bearers. Within the previous too, the CIC never consulted the discipline of work-bearers or Apex Council on these appointments.”
