The Bengal association seeks to challenge CoA
The CAB decided to challenge the authority of the Supreme Court-appointed CoA after the Bengal cricket body was asked to submit a compliance report on the same.

The CAB had informed the CoA that president Sourav Ganguly, the two joint secretaries Subir Ganguly and Avishek Dalmiya, assistant secretary Anu Dutta along with the three vice-presidents are still eligibe for holding post in the office. The only ineligible office-bearer is treasurer Biswarup Dey.
