Power equations change with COA coming in

NEW DELHI: The appointment of the committee of administrators (COA) by the Supreme Court has given rise to uncertainty over the roles senior board functionaries like joint-secretary Amitabh Choudhary, treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary and senior vicepresident CK Khanna will play in the coming months.
Despite the three BCCI officials having given undertakings to implement the Lodha committee's reforms as per the apex court's January 2 order, the apex court did not give any indication on their roles during Monday's hearing.

However, the office bearers aren't reading too much into it. On the contrary , they are of the opinion that the SC wouldn't have allowed both Choudhary and Chaudhary to represent BCCI at the International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting in the first week of February in Dubai if they have no further role to play in the cricket board. Sources said the fact that Amitabh Choudhary convened the senior selection committee's meeting to pick the Indian team for the Bangladesh series in Delhi is proof that these officials will continue to work for the board. But it is also clear that Rai and board's CEO Rahul Johri are now the two most important people responsible for running the board, and the roles of the BCCI office bearers would come up for discussion in the days to come.

But the ones, who ran the game all these years, are not happy that their paid executive, Johri, would be wielding more power in the running of cricket in the country .
