upca: Mohd Kaif Appointed As Chairman Of Upca Panel | Kanpur News

Kanpur: Former captain of UP cricket team and international cricketer Mohd Kaif has been appointed as chairman of the cricket committee of the Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association which consists of Anil Mathur, Arvind Kapoor and Faisal Sherwani.
The members of the committee have constituted the Umpire Committee comprising of BD Shukla, Anurag Rathore and Tarun Kapoor.
In the annual general meeting held on December 30 last, the members had cast their votes on various proposals.
Against expectations, no changes were made in the junior selection committee which will continue for one more season. The AGM however removed Arvind Kapoor from the chairmanship of the senior selection committee replacing it with former UP batsman Ambrish Gautam.
Abhishek Singhania and Ashok Chaturvedi have been re-appointed as UPCA directors while Justice Shiv Kirti Singh has been appointed as ombudsman, Justice CK Prasad as the ethics officer and AK Joti as an electoral officer. Apart from this, the members also confirmed that Rajeev Shukla or otherwise president/secretary would represent UPCA in the BCCI.
As the AGM held on December 30 last was virtual and since one rebel group had filed a petition in the high court, therefore, company secretary Kunal Sippy conducted the ballot voting. After going through the procedure, he posted the result on the UPCA website. The ballots were sent to all the 98 members. He received 76 ballots in the stipulated time out of which 74 were found valid.
For the UPCA election, especially to fill up the vacant posts of president and secretary, the AGM gave its consent for the election to be held in August 2022 when the current set of officials will complete its tenure, and thereafter fresh elections will be held for all the posts, said a UPCA official.
He has justified the removal of one of the apex council members as he had attained the age of 70 years.
