Former Indian cricketer –Pravin Amre, on Friday, decided to step down from the managing committee of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) to join the Delhi Daredevils (DD) camp, in a bid to avoid conflict of interest as per Lodha Committee recommendations for BCCI.
Recently, Amre has been appointed as the head of talent hunt for the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise DD, though, the 49-year-old says it’s hurting him to tender resignation letter to MCA. He wrote in his letter that he wanted to avoid a case of conflict of interest as per the guidelines of the Justice Lodha panel recommendations.
As per ANI, Amre wrote in his letter, “It is with a heavy heart that I tender my resignation from the managing committee of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) with immediate effect.”
He further added on the same, “I had to take this big step in keeping with the high standards that our august cricket body has set over the years. I have just been appointed the Head of Talent for Delhi Daredevils and it was only in the fitness of things that I stand down from the MCA. We as administrators have always set lofty standards for others to follow and I am only trying to follow that path.”
He further added, “This, I believe is the ideal way to avoid being considered a fit case for conflict of interest as per the guidelines of the Justice Lodha panel recommendations.”
Former Mumbai coach signed off by saying, “I wish the best always for Mumbai cricket and will be available for advice at any given time for the cause of the sport.”
