BCCI mum about women's body merger
Bangalore:The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) remained tight-lipped about it's much talked-about merger with the Women's Cricket Association of India (WCAI).

Talking to Thatscricket.com, BCCI secretary SK Nair said he was not in a position to comment on the issue as it was yet to come up for discussion.

"We haven't initiated any discussion in this regard. There is lot of time for that," Nair said.

When asked why the BCCI has been maintaining a stoic silence on the issue considering that the male cricket bodies of Australia, England and New Zeaaland were already amalgamated with the women's bodies, Nair offered a straight bat.

"Please don't put words into my mouth. At this juncture, I don't wish to say anything on that. Issues like this have to be discussed in a threadbare manner and hopefully we would soon move things forward," he said.

It's worth noting that the International Women's Cricket Council (IWCC)-the world governing body of international women's cricket, was recently merged with the world governing body for men's cricket-International Cricket Council (ICC) during the March-April Women's World Cup held in South Africa.

It may be pertinent to point out that the Women's Cricket Association of India (WCAI) had earlier expressed optimism that the merger would come about soon. The women's body has been given a year's extension by the ICC to merge itself with the BCCI.
