Summary

  • The Board of Control for Cricket in India was left red-faced after a letter it sent to state associations on the upcoming annual domestic captain-coaches’ conclave, to be held in Mumbai on February 28, carried a glaring error.
  • The letter sent to state associations by BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary, a copy of which is in possession of PTI, states that the “purpose of meeting is to seek feedback from the captains and coaches about Ranji Trophy season 2016-17 and discuss the same”.
  • What left a lot of state associations confused was the “2016-17 season” in place of what should have been 2017-18 season.
  • While it is clear that it was a factual-cum-typographical error committed by the administrative department, what baffled many state unit officials was that nobody bothered to send a corrected version till today evening.
  • They should be a bit more careful about it,” a senior state board functionary said on conditions of anonymity.
