Patna: Bihar Cricket Association (BCA) chief Laloo Prasad Yadav, who had made a virtual revolt against the newly elected BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya over the issue of affiliation of the BCA, on Friday said their differences were sorted out.
"It is unfortunate that due to a communication gap there was some misunderstanding between Dalmiya and me. I am happy that everything has been sorted out for the good of cricket," Yadav said in a statement after a telephonic talk with the BCCI president. Dalmiya had on October 3 constituted a 5-member Selection Committee to choose Bihar teams for both senior and junior tournaments. Defying the BCCI Selection Committee, BCA on Thursday announced selection trial for state's under-19 team. "I feel the decision taken by Dalmiya is in the best interest of cricketers and umpires of Bihar and Jharkhand," Yadav said on Friday. Yadav hoped that affiliations would be granted by the BCCI to cricket associations of all states created as a result of division of territories. Yadav said BCA vice-president Alok Raj and joint secretary Ramashanker would attend Saturday's meeting of the Special Committee convened by Dalmiya in Kolkata. Earlier on October 2, Yadav had threatened that he would seek legal options if there were any move to ''de-recognise'' his organisation by the BCCI and said ''there is a sinister campaign to oust me from BCA panel''.
