State cricket boards will be given recognition: BCCI

Cricket boards of the North-Eastern states would be given recognition once they attain a certain standard, BCCI president, Sharad Pawar, said Friday.

“The state cricket boards of the region have applied for affiliation. Many of them, including Meghalaya, are strong cases,” Pawar told reporters here.

He said the boards would be given support all kinds of support like financial, infrastructural, technical and coaching.

“When they come up to a certain level, say by two or three years, the boards will be recognised by the BCCI.

“The BCCI has amended its constitution, and now it seeks to associate all the states, giving all possible assistance. We will definitely make these boards regular members of the BCCI,” he said.

The BCCI chief also underlined the need to develop cricketing infrastructure in the region to tap talent and provide a congenial atmosphere for their development.

Pawar, however, refused to comment on the recent drubbing of India by the Aussies.
