Lockdown delays payment to domestic players and officials from BCCI

The apex governing body for cricket in India, BCCI continues to face challenges even after a new team led by former Indian Captain Sourav Ganguly took over the charge last year. The recent novel coronavirus outbreak has made it worst for the board.

According to a report published in The Hindu, BCCI has taken a hard hit due to COVID-19 pandemic. While some Domestic players and officials are still waiting for the payments for the recently concluded season, the BCCI is also facing ‘instability issues’ due to the resignation of some key members from the board.

Delay in payment is due to lockdown

On the charges of delay in payment, the BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal said that it is not because of a financial issue but primarily due to the COVID-19 enforced lockdown. He also stressed that the issue will be addressed on priority basis once the lockdown ends.

“I have been given to understand that the delay in payments is primarily due to the lockdown. But payments are being released and whatever little backlog has been created will be cleared at the earliest,”

said Dhumal.

Instability in the board

The Supreme Court of India directed the BCCI to appoint chief executive (CEO) and Chief financial officer (CFO) after the IPL scandal. While the CFO appointed by SC has resigned just after coronation of Ganguly led team, the CEO Rahul Johri tendered his resignation earlier this year.

However, the resignation has been rejected by BCCI apex council on 6 May during a meeting which means Johri will remain at the post until March 2021.

However, BCCI treasure Arun Dhumal denied the reports and said that the board is totally stable.

“There is no instability as such. People come and go but an institution never stops running. It’s not that we have been incapacitated by any of these factors,” he told.
