‘JKCA‘s internal bickering takes toll on Bedi’
Former Int’l Cricketer To Stay Away From Selection Process
Srinagar, Oct 29: JKCA Chief Coach and former international cricketer, Bishen Singh Bedi has decided to stay away from selection process in keeping with the internal bickering and selection politics of J&K Cricket Association (JKCA).
According to sources in JKCA, Bishen Singh Bedi, who was looking after the selection process has expressed his desire to stay away from selection process following displeasure over his working by some selectors.
“It is an irony that legends like Bedi has decided to stay away from selection process as the selectors in his presence couldn’t include any of the blue eyed players in the Ranji team. Hence they started to create hurdles in his working,” JKCA sources said.
Accrding to sources, JK Ranji Trophy has been performing miserably at the national level and to make teams’ performance better, JKCA has roped in Bishen Singh Bedi as chief coach.
“Bedi was roped in to make team performance better. However, in his first year JK team couldn’t do well at national level. The reason is being cited as his less time with the players and to do selection,” sources said, adding that during the current year he was on the look out for players in every age group.
“Bedi though it better to stay away and give selectors free way to select team. If team wouldn’t be able t perform well at national level then the blame would rest on selectors and not the Bedi,” sources added.
When contacted JKCA Treasurer Manzoor Wazir said, “Bedi is the chief coach of the team and for the selection we have got separate selection committee. Due to some personal reservations one of the selector, Iqbal Shah was not able to attend his work last month. In his absence Bedi was included in Kashmir province selection process”.
