Mumbai: Jul 24, 2013
 
After reports of conflict between members of the National Cricket Academy (NCA), some of the coaches have chosen to leave the academy tired of the lackadaisical administration.

The issue comes after reports of rift between NCA and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) over restructuring policy of the academy, reports DNA.
 
India’s Under-19 team coach Bharat Arun is reportedly not keen on extending his contract with the NCA’s bowling unit which expires on July 31. Arun is instead contemplating to join as director with the Tamil Nadu Cricket Academy.

The head of batting unit Dinesh Nanavaty too is on his way out citing health reasons. Unconfirmed reports suggest Dr. Kinjal Suratwala, head, sports science and coach education is also planning to part ways.

One of the members, Biswarup Dey, openly expressed his displeasure over the affairs of NCA.

“NCA has been the pride of Indian cricket but the way it is being run at the present moment is very disappointing. No one has any clue about how restructuring is being done. There was suppose to be a meeting of the NCA board in June and we are now at the end of July, but I haven’t heard of anything yet,” he said.
 
In April there were rumours that BCCI was planning to close down the NCA.
