Prasanna stripped of KSCA role: Former India off-spinner Erapalli Prasanna, who has joined the Indian Cricket League (ICL) executive committee, has been stripped of Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) Spin Coach's post, KSCA Secretary Brijesh Patel announced today.
Talking to newsperons here, Patel, who returned after participating the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Executive Meeting in Mumbai yesterday, said as per directions from the Board to all the Associations, Prasanna had been removed from the post.
Prasanna would also cease to get pension from the KSCA, Patel added
Patel slams ICL's attitude: Patel said the newly formed Indian Cricket League (ICL) should not have indulged in confrontational attitude with Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
"ICL, instead of adopting confrontational attitude, should have sat with BCCI and discussed and offered to conduct tournament for promoting the game. ICL adopted a wrong approach," Patel said, while speaking at a press conference here.
Regarding the reports on his statement that formation of ICL might not pose a threat to BCCI, Patel said that the players selected by ICL so far were either on the verge of retirement or aged, and how long they could perform in the field needed to be watched.
