The Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) on Thursday said it will not be holding any fresh polls after conducting the elections last December as per the amended constitution.

A senior official confirmed the development to PTI while asserting that Vidarbha Cricket was one of the first state associations to have amended its Constitution as per the Lodha panel reforms and conducted elections immediately after that.

Asked whether Vidarbha would conduct fresh polls, the official replied in the negative.

“We are fully compliant (with regard to Lodha reforms) and we held the elections (in accordance with that),” the official said, adding the term of the elected representatives is three years.

It is reliably learnt that in the polls which were conducted last December, Anand Jaiswal was elected as President.

The VCA said it would soon be finalising its representative who will be sent for the BCCI’s election scheduled to be held on 22 October.

“We will be meeting in a couple of days to finalise that name,” the official said without elaborating.

Meanwhile, a day after the Committee of Administrators (COA) asked the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) to appoint a new electoral officer in place of former top bureaucrat D N Chaudhary, it has been learnt that the association office bearers would be taking legal opinion on the matter.

The COA in clear terms asked the MCA to conduct the polls before 28 September, failing which it would lose its voting right in the BCCI polls.
