Former Indian cricketer Madan Lal may be out of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). In fact, he has crossed the age limit of 70 in March this year, which is the maximum age to hold a constitutional post in the BCCI. Although there has been no official confirmation from the BCCI, Madan Lal had said in a statement on Monday that he is no longer a part of the CAC. His absence in this committee is also confirmed by the guest list prepared by the BCCI for the playoff and final of IPL 2021.
Actually, the other two members of the CAC, RP Singh and Sulakshana Naik, are named in this list, but Madan Lal is not. At present, there is no official statement from the BCCI regarding his option. On the other hand, Indian men’s cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri and members of the support staff will end their tenure after the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, there may be a need for the formation of CAC immediately. Meanwhile, BCCI officials have said that after Shastri, who will become the coach of the Indian team, it will be announced soon.
Madan Lal, who was part of the Indian team that won the 1983 World Cup, has turned 70. In such a situation, according to the rules, he cannot extend his term as a member of the CAC. The CAC, comprising Madan Lal, RP Singh and Sulakshana Naik, picked Ramesh Pawar as the coach of the Indian women’s cricket team in May. The CAC was constituted in January 2020 for a period of one year. Presently this term is on extension.
