BCCI set to appoint Madan Lal, Gambhir as CAC members
Wednesday 15 January 2020

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has approached World Cup winners Madan Lal and Gautam Gambhir, the former India cricketers, to be a part of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC). Both the former Delhi giants confirmed to The Hindu that they are willing to be a part of CAC.
While Madan Lal, the 1983 World Cup winner who also served as India coach in the 1990s, said he is “willing to contribute to Indian cricket in every possible way”, Gambhir said he has given his consent to the BCCI.
The CAC’s formation has been delayed since the new BCCI dispensation headed by Sourav Ganguly has made a plea to the Supreme Court seeking relaxation in the Conflict of Interest clause. Considering that the apex court may hear the case on January 14, the BCCI has swung into action.
If the Supreme Court gives its nod, the BCCI will reconstitute the CAC at the earliest so that in can set in place the procedure to appoint revised selection committees. The first CAC appointed in 2015 included Sachin Tendulkar, V.V.S. Laxman and Ganguly.
After the conflict clause came into place, all the three backed out. As a result, an interim CAC headed by Kapil Dev was involved while appointing Ravi Shastri as the head coach.
