Controversial Association
1/29/2020 10:21:29 PM
Women cricketers in Jammu and Kashmir casting aspersion over the recently held selections for under-23 cricket team have once again brought the Jammu and Kashmir Cricket Association (JKCA) in the limelight.
The women cricketers, who couldn't make it to team J&K, claimed that selection trials were not fair and many deserving players were left out. This is not for the first time that JKCA has hogged the headlines. This controversial cricket association has always remained in news for one or other reason every now and then.
Successive regimes in the erstwhile State of Jammu and Kashmir ran this association in their own ways. The biggest attraction for the office bearers of this association has been the money. The JKCA like cricket associations of the other States and Union Territories gets funds from different sources round the year.
The infamous JKCA scam had opened a Pandora's box. The former J&K Chief Minister and National Conference president, Dr Farooq Abdullah, was questioned by the investigating agencies in connection with the scam. Before being placed under detention on August 5 last year, he was summoned by the probe agency to its office in Chandigarh.
Prior to reorganization of Jammu and Kashmir the JKCA was one of the most vibrant organisations in J&K. Unfortunately the vibrancy revolved only around scams and its members being caught in one or other issue. In fact it seemed that other than promoting cricket, JKCA was doing everything else.
The cricketers from Jammu and Kashmir had to suffer a lot due to the JKCA being run by non-professionals. The J&K's reorganization has rekindled the hope among the cricketers that they no longer will be treated shabbily and they will have someone whom they can reach out to. At least professionals will handle the affairs of the association.
The women cricketers, who are alleging that selection trials were fixed, need to be given a chance to substantiate their allegations. Young players in J&K expect that such practices will stop in the newly carved out Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. May be the UT administration has not paid much attention towards the issues of JKCA so far, but one thing is for sure that if people at the helm decide to take some interest in the JKCA, it could bring out many truths to fore.
