Aditya Prakash Verma, secretary of Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) is not a happy man these days. Recently he has come up with fresh allegations against BCCI Acting Secretary Amitabh Choudhary.
Verma believes that Chaudhary has tinkered with the age details of Jharkhand born U19 cricket Anukul Roy who bowled India to success in the recently concluded U19 World Cup in which the young Indian boys emerged victorious.
Jharkhand's Anukul Roy was the member of the Indian squad which won the 2018 ICC U-19 World Cup after thrashing Australia by eight wickets. He also became the joint highest wicket-taker in the tournament.
However, Verma has alleged that Roy was over-aged and was found guilty in the age verification process (AVP) test by BCCI in the year 2017.
In his letter to ICC and BCCI, Verma wrote, "Anukul Roy was found guilty in the AVP (age verification process) test by BCCI in the year 2017 when Mr. Choudhary was the President of the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA)."
He added, "On that time Mr. Choudhary, who was the Joint Secretary of BCCI, used his power and influence allowed Mr. Anukul Roy to play Jharkhand under-19 in the domestic cricket tournament of BCCI."
Talking to ANI, Verma said, "Amitabh Choudhary is an acting secretary of BCCI and everybody knows he is the biggest law broker of the Indian cricket board. I have sent so many letters to CoA regarding illegal acts of Choudhary but failed to get any reply."
"BCCI has already debarred Ankul Roy to play from U-19 in 2016 but Choudhary being a secretary of BCCI and being the convener of the Junior Selection Committee of BCCI managed to include him in the team," Verma added.
Verma concluded his argument by demanding justice from BCCI and CoA Chief Vinod Rai.
