Hyderabad: The fall out was inevitable. The selections of the Hyderabad under-19 squad had raised quite a few eyebrows and criticism ran high, with many being unhappy with the way the team for the Vinoo Mankad under-19 cricket tournament was picked. The resignation of junior selector Indrasekhar Reddy has caused a rumble in the HCA.
The frustrated selector put in his papers reportedly fed up with the interference in selection matters. The former left-arm spinner reportedly sent in his resignation through his IPhone. He was unhappy with secretary R Vijayanand’s statement that selectors selected the team to this paper.
Former secretary T Sheshnarayan said some of the office bearers were party to the selection and how can they squarely blame the selectors.
He further said: The fundamental question is who is at the helm of affairs of the Hyderabad Cricket Association today?
He also questioned, “what is the substance of the High Court order? How can anyone blatantly ignore and conduct the affairs of HCA? It is utter disregard and disrespect to the High Court order,’’ he said.
Sheshnarayan said it is a very unfortunate situation and the 200-odd members are in a dilemma. “It is time to set the house in order,’’ he said.
