Cricket News By TODAYLIVESCORE.INFO - New CAC member imminent with Madan Lal on the way out. Madan Lal turned 70 earlier this year
Madan Lal turned 70 earlier this year
An announcement has not come so far, but Madan Lal could already be out of the Cricket Advisory Committee of the BCCI. He has already gone past the age limit of 70, which is the maximum age for holding a constitutional position in the BCCI, in March this year.
However, the committee, also comprising RP Singh and Sulakshana Naik, was invited to select the coach of the women's national team in May. It had then picked Ramesh Powar. The committee, first appointed in January 2020 for one year, has been on extension since.
“I am not part of it,” Madan Lal told Cricbuzz on Monday (October 4). His absence from the panel was further reconfirmed when the BCCI left him out of the guest list for the ‘final week' of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in UAE. Singh and Naik, on the other hand, have been invited for the play-offs and the final.
There has been no official word from the BCCI on his replacement while the panel will have to soon pick the next India Men's team coach. The Ravi Shastri-led support staff of the Indian team is set to leave after the T20 WC in November, and there may be an immediate requirement for the formation of the CAC. Meanwhile, the BCCI officials say the process of selection to find a successor to Shastri will start soon.
Shastri leaves for Dubai; other coaches to leave on Oct 7
In a change of programme, Shastri advanced his departure for the T20 WC and has already reached Dubai due to some personal work. He was initially scheduled to leave with other coaches – batting coach Vikram Rathour, bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar — on October 8.
The other three now will leave on October 7 so that they can start the mandatory six-day quarantine early and be ready to start work by October 13 when most players taking part in the IPL will be free for the pre-World Cup routines.
