In the next Annual General Meeting of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, the future of Dilip Vengsarkar as a member of the National Cricket Academy committee will be decided. A BCCI official has informed that the board will soon be appointing a full-time special project director for NCA.

Vengsarkar is a part-time committee member of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) while being associated with the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA). So some members raised his conflict of interest issue and asked that to be addressed. But a BCCI official stated that every sub-committee tenure is till AGM and the same will be applicable for Vengsarkar. 

"Dilip Vengsarkar does not have a contract with the BCCI. So where does the question of removing him arise? He is a part-time committee member. Like every sub-committee's tenure is till AGM, same with Vengsarkar," a senior BCCI official, who attended the CoA meeting on Saturday, said as quoted by PTI. 

"There are extensive plans with regards to NCA. We will have a Project Director, who will execute the BCCI blueprint with regards to NCA revamp. As and when something concrete happens, we would be able to divulge more information. We are also in the process of finalising the revised pay structure for domestic players."

He also stated that the BCCI is fully backing CEO Rahul Johri, who wrote two letters, one for NADA chief Navin Agarwal and second addressed to the sports secretary Rahul Bhatnagar on November 8, in which he pointed out the technical points which suggest that NADA has no authority over Indian cricketers. The BCCI has made it clear that they are not a National Sports Federation (NSF), therefore NADA has no jurisdiction to test Indian cricketers.

"The dope tests are conducted by National Dope Test Laboratory and union sports secretary is the ex-officio or vice-chairman of the institution. So this is a wrong concept that we are flouting any rules," the official added.

The BCCI is also leaving it on Justice Vikramajit Sen to deal with Gautam Gambhir's alleged conflict of interest if he happens to take up the role of a managing committee member in Delhi and District Cricket Association (DDCA).

"Justice Sen will look into the matter as he is a High Court-appointed administrator," the official said.
