Mumbai Cricket Association on Friday (July 17) announced the creation of a 'Cricket Improvement Committee' (CIC) which will take charge of all cricket-related appointments, including those of coaches and selectors of all men's and women's state teams. Former India internationals Lalchand Rajput, Sameer Dighe and Raju Kulkarni have been shortlisted for the committee by the MCA apex council.



"Now their consent will be obtained on whether they want to be part of the committee. If they give their consent, we will accordingly send them letters," an MCA apex council member told Sports Cafe.

The matter of resumption of cricket was also discussed in the meeting. Although Mumbai is one of the worst hit cities in India, the possibility of conducting camps in a secure facility was considered. However, it was finally decided to wait for government guidelines before attempting to return to the field.



"We will follow all the guidelines of the state (Maharashtra) government and won't resume any activity till we have permission from them. Also, we will see what the BCCI decides, and then accordingly plan out tournaments," the official added.



Finally, with MCA Chief Executive Officer CS Naik's tenure slated to end in October, the apex council decided to allow him to continue in the position of executive secretary once his contract ends.
