Patna:  Aditya Verma, petitioner in the IPL  spot-fixing scam, has written a letter to COA chief Vinod Rai alleging discrimination against Bihar cricketers after they were not included in the Indian Premier League auction. Verma, in his letter, has accused BCCI office-bearers of flouting rules by allowing Rajeev Shukla to continue as the IPL chairman.

He has also alleged that CEO Rahul Johri and acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary have “formed a gang” and are not implementing Supreme Court diktat on Lodha Committee reforms. Earlier, CoA chief Vinod Rai has said that the concept of Women’s IPL, which was being discussed for the past few years could be reality in 2018.

Rai had said that the CoA is planning to do more things to boost women’s cricket in the nation. Although the Indian women gained immense popularity after finishing as the runners-up in the 2017 ICC Women’s World Cup in England, it still has struggled to get a proper exposure like their counterpart men’s team.
