(Image courtesy: Getty)[/caption] <p></p> <p></p>The <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/BCCI">Board of Control for Cricket in India</a> (BCCI) and the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/CoA">CoA</a>) continue to be at loggerheads. Both parties have been continuously trying to overrule each others authority in <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/india">Indian</a> cricket. In a new controversy, Vinod Rai, head of CoA has asked the BCCI office-bearers, especially Amitabh Choudhary, not to take any decision over India s proposed day-night Test against West Indies come October. <p></p> <p></p>According to <i>IndianExpress</i>, Rai expressed displeasure over Choudhary s telephonic conversation with India s head coach Ravi Shastri. I don t have Ravi s email id. Please forward to him also." He also questioned, why BCCI's decision-making power was only limited to Mumbai. <p></p> <p></p> Even if it be cricket of which all of you certainly have greater knowledge than me (I am excluding Diana who has greater knowledge than all of you!), I represent the viewing population. They are your greatest stakeholder. Don t you think you need to factor them in? <p></p> <p></p>Rai's letter was as follows: <p></p> <p></p> The issue is placed on hold. It does not go out of cricket centre_till: 1. We work out a whole process with venue thrown in _ exact timing incl. security arrangement over five days in the same venue and the cost of the same to BCCI/State Assn. We then consult the guest team. We need to factor in their viewpoints. 3. Ravi may have been consulted but I would like to consult the players whose body clock over five consecutive days will have to get accustomed to a new timing. 4. Also factor in the administrative set up who will be doing the regimen for five days-late nights and all. <p></p> <p></p>Shastri's view on day-night cricket is quite open, he mentions, As far as day night cricket goes it can be tried out as an experiment with a game starting at 12 and where the last session is played under lights. It will be interesting to see how much part dew will play. Again against a team like the West Indies it has to be played in a tier 2 city without a doubt. To get in the crowds it doesn t matter if it s a day game or daynight game. What (is) important is 2 tier city.
