PTI gained access to five SGM agenda items, including Forming the Infrastructure Development and Subsidy Subcommittee, Guidelines for Appointing Physical Therapists and Coaches to State Teams, Forming the Working Group for the ICC 2023 World Cup, Forming the Women’s Premier League Committee, and Ratifying the Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy.
Following allegations of sexual harassment against former BCCI CEO Rahul Johri, BCCI formed a four-member Internal Complaints Committee (ICC), but under the revised policy, the new committee may include more members.
The ODI World Cup Working Group will consist of the BCCI president, secretary, treasurer, and acting CEO and other senior officials. The board of directors has already allocated funds to upgrade the infrastructure of all stadiums selected for the ODI World Cup. Most of the stadiums are in urgent need of renovation and must be made spectator-friendly.
Regarding the formation of the Women’s Premier League committee, they need to ensure that a dedicated window for the tournament is created as soon as possible.
This year, the Australian women’s national team will play international matches until the third week of February, and therefore the WPL can only begin after that. In case you are considering a Diwali window, then there is a men’s World Cup, a franchise official told PTI on condition of anonymity. One important aspect will be the assignment of physical therapists and coaches for the state teams, and BCCI wants NCA-certified support staff to be associated with the national teams for a unified fitness module and injury treatment program.
