In fact, the entire committee has been dissolved. Joshi had completed an year in office this June. The RCA office-bearers will now have to be elected within three months. <p></p> <p></p>RCA secretary RS Nandu told <em>DNA</em> that an eight-member ad-hoc committee, formed under <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/rajasthan" target="_blank">Rajasthan</a> Sports Act, is in place to oversee smooth running of the RCA activities during the interim period: "The committee will be headed by Vinod Saharan. It shall draw eight members from both factions." <p></p> <p></p>The coup was carried out after office-bearers of 16 districts (out of 33 affiliated with RCA) had filed a complaint two months ago, citing Joshi's inefficiency. Nandu added: "He was found flouting the Sports Act that demands a president to conduct domestic tournament. He also failed to carry out the annual audit mandatory for the books of the Association." <p></p> <p></p>RCA's history of running into trouble is well-known. The 2017 elections had to be carried out as per Lodha Panel Recommendations. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/BCCI" target="_blank">BCCI</a>, too, lifted their ban on RCA earlier this year. Unfortunately, the troubles keep finding their way. <p></p> <p></p>On a happier note, Rajasthan seamer <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/khaleel-ahmed" target="_blank">Khaleel Ahmed</a> made his debut yesterday, in the Asia Cup match against Hong Kong. He had figures of 3 for 48.
