COA member Diana Edulji and BCCI’s new apex council member Shantha Rangaswamy has questioned the “unconstitutional” appointment of the support staff of the women’s national team in a letter to board CEO Rahul Johri. A day after the Hemlata Kalaled women’s selection panel wrote to the CEO, claiming they were kept out of the hiring process of the support staff, former India captains Edulji and Rangaswamy has lashed out at the shabby treatment handed out to the national team.
“I am shocked reading the article quoting the e-mail from women selectors to you regarding the sham process being followed for selection of the video analyst. It is even more worrisome that the person Mr Pushkar Sawant, wanted by Saba Karim (GM cricket operations) and NCA is already booked on the flight to West Indies. The whole process looks like an eye wash,” Edulji, who is set to demit office alongside two other COA members, wrote in the letter.
“This is the national Indian team that is travelling and such shabby treatment is being doled out to them. I wonder if you would do this to the men’s team,” part of the letter read.
