BCCI rejects amalgamation with WCAI

The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI), which governs the men’s game in the world’s most populous cricketing nation, has rejected an application from the women’s governing body for an amalgamation.

A brief announcement of the rejection of the request by the Women’s Cricket Association of India (WCAI) was made at the conclusion of the BCCI’s AGM, which was conducted at Eden Gardens, Calcutta on September 27-29.

While the WCAI had submitted a proposal for amalgamation with the wealthy men’s body, to take effect from 2005, this was rejected by the BCCI, whose president is Jagmohan Dalmiya.

Press agency UNI reported that the BCCI decided instead to “lend a helping hand to the WCAI in all matters related to the game of cricket”.
