Former India captain Kapil Dev has been recommended by the Committee of Administrators to be part of a four-member committee that will help with the formation of the Players’ Association. Formation of a Players’ Association has been one of the major recommendations of the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Panel. Apart from Kapil, former Test opener Anshuman Gaekwad and former Tamil Nadu wicketkeeper Bharath Reddy’s names have also been recommended, while GK Pillai is the fourth member of the steering committee.
The recommendation came in the backdrop of Kapil’s denial of becoming the head of the Players’ Association of Haryana. Kapil has been part of the broadcasting teams of late, while Gaekwad and Bharath Reddy have been involved with administrative roles in Baroda and Tamil Nadu cricket respectively.
