Don’t mislead, COA warns JKCA on Ranji pull-out threats

NEW DELHI: The Committee of Administrators (COA) today admonished Jammu & Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) secretary Iqbal Shah for his “misleading” comments about lack of funds forcing them to mull “pulling out” of the upcoming Ranji Trophy.
The JKCA secretary has said that since the BCCI has stopped the annual grants, it will be difficult to field a team for Ranji Trophy, prompting the COA to term it a pressure tactic to squeeze out funds despite non-compliance of the Supreme Court directive.
The COA, in a strongly-worded letter, told the JKCA secretary to comply with the Supreme Court orders. (Agencies)
