JKCA crisis worsens as treasurer quits

KL Report


Amidst allegations of Kashmiri players about regional bias, J&K Cricket Association (JKCA) treasurer resigned worsening the crises within.

Treasurer (JKCA) Manzoor Wazir, resigned amid the ongoing differences between players from the Kashmir region and coach Bishen Singh Bedi on Friday.

“I faxed my resignation to association president Dr Farooq Abdullah in view of the problems in the governing body, including the boycott by some players,” Wazir reportedly said.

Several players from Kashmir, including captain Samiullah Beigh, have refused to represent the team and alleged that Bedi was favoring players from Jammu. They say they have written to JKCA president Farooq Abdullah, but got no response.

Beigh alleged Bedi was creating a rift in the team. “He asked me to drop pacer Abid Nabi without any reason. He told me you can play anybody but Abid Nabi,” the captain said.
