BCCI seeks an admin manager for NCA
The Indian cricket board (BCCI), which is looking to give the ailing National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru an administrative overhaul, has quietly gone about the process of hiring an administrative manager. Former India captain Dilip Vengsarkar is currently the NCA director. According to sources, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA), along with BCCI chief executive officer Rahul Johri, are looking for names for the new post. 
It is not clear if the board will look to continue with the director if it finds a suitable administrative manager.
Over the years, BCCI has had a committee, comprising of office-bearers, to look into the academy's affair along with the director. Since the CoA has dissolved all the committees, there is no one to oversee NCA at the moment.
It is learnt that the current BCCI office-bearers - acting president CK Khanna, acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary and treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary -have been kept out of the loop. "The CoA and the CEO have spoken to a few potential candidates about the job. Nothing has been finaliaed yet. The process is definitely on to find someone who can take care of the administrative affairs of the NCA. As of now, Vengsarkar is still the director," a BCCI official close to the development told TOI.
Interestingly, according to the Justice Lodha Committee recommendations, the BCCI is supposed to publish advertisements for every appointment. In this case, no such advertisement has been put out by the board yet.
"If the CoA is going ahead with the process of appointing someone for the post, it has to go through the proper process. For now, every discussion -even interview for the GM cricket operations -have been held in hotels instead of the BCCI's cricket centre in Mumbai," a source said. It is also understood that the talks for the NCA post happened on the same day as the interviews for the GM's post.
TOI has learnt that the CoA is looking for cricketers with post-graduation degrees. "There used to be a local administrator who used to look after the day-to-day functioning but it was more like a job of a caretaker.
There is a lot of work to be done from establishing the new high-performance centre in the outskirts of Bengaluru to reviving proper functioning of the academy," the official said.
