Srinagar: Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Monday appointed the observer for J&K Cricket Association (JKCA).

BCCI on Monday issued a statement announcing that Ashish Shelar who is currently BCCI Treasurer will be an observer for JKCA. BCCI also appointed Devajit Saikia, Joint Secretary, BCCI as an observer for Bihar Cricket Association.

Since March 2021, the JKCA is directly run by BCCI through its three-member sub-commitee.

The committee was given the mandate to run JKCA day to day affairs and also conduct the elections of the cricket body as soon as possible.

However, even after more than a year, Sub-Committee failed to make any headway in the conduct of the JKCA elections. In the recently held BCCI AGM, a JKCA sub-committee member who attended the meeting from JKCA was given clear directions by BCCI to finalise the constitution and hold elections.

In that regard appointment of Ashish Shelar as an observer for the JKCA is considered a major step with BCCI giving a clear indication that it is serious about streamlining the affairs of the J&K Cricket body.
