The ongoing stand-off between the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) got its first victims of collateral damage with the umpires from Rajasthan board being barred from officiating in any match in the future. This coming in a day after the RCA got removed from the BCCI’s annual fixtures list.

The RCA, which was suspended by the BCCI in May earlier this year for electing tainted former Indian Premier League (IPL) chief Lalit Modi, did not nominate five match referees from their association for the Match Referee seminar that is to be held on August 30 in Bangalore.

“As per the rule, each state has to send the names to the BCCI. The RCA, however, didn’t send any names so they will be not allowed to officiate in the upcoming season,” said a BCCI official to The Indian Express. “As RCA are suspended, they will not be allowed to take part in any of BCCI activities,” added the BCCI official.

The BCCI however assured other officials such as umpires and video analysts that their jobs would be safe and that they would continue to be on the board’s payroll.

“We have an umpire’s committee that nominates officials for the domestic season. They directly come under the board’s banner. So even if an umpire hails from Rajasthan, he need not to worry about the suspension to his board,” added the BCCI official.

The RCA faced the BCCI wrath in May earlier this year when they nominated Modi, who has been barred from participating in BCCI activities for life, was elected as its President on May 6. This has caused the Rajasthani cricket body to get ticked off from the BCCI’s lists of tournaments, which could be harmful to potential talent from the state.
