Abiding by SC, Kerala Cricket Assn office-bearers quit
A meeting of the KCA held in Kochi appointed B Vinod as the new president and Jayesh George as the secretary of the association
Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) president TC Mathew, secretary Ananthanarayan and other office-bearers who have "cumulatively or separately completed nine years in office", have quit their posts following the Supreme Court directive to the BCCI to implement the Lodha Panel reforms.
A meeting of the KCA held in Kochi appointed B Vinod as the new president and Jayesh George as the secretary of the association, KCA sources told a news agency.
The changes were brought hours after the Supreme Court removed BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke.
Mathew, who has served the KCA as an office-bearer for nearly two decades, is also a BCCI vice-president.
Ananthanarayan vacated his post as he has completed nearly 11 years in office.
According to the directive from the Lodha panel, any individual who has cumulatively completed a period of nine years as an office bearer of a state association stands disqualified from contesting elections or holding a post in the association.
Mathew and his team members left office seven months ahead of completion of current term of office-bearers.
