GUWAHATI, Dec 25: The new committee of the Assam Cricket Association (ACA) was formed in its annual general meeting held in Hailakandi today. There was not too much change in the committee as both Gautam Roy and Bikash Barua have retained the post of president and general secretary respectively. Both were unopposed at the meeting. Ghanshyam Barua, treasurer of the last committee, too extended his tenure in the same post without any opposition. The election was held for only vice-president’s post and Dr Brojen Gohain won it by defeating Prabin Konwar by 42-38 votes.
It may be mentioned here that a lot of discussion was held during the last few days on the election of Assam Cricket Association as dissident members, both from within and out of the Assam Cricket Association, were in a mood to bring a change because they were not happy at the performance of the earlier committee. However, good performance of the State teams at various level competitions of BCCI and the ongoing work of the ACA’s new cricket stadium at Barshapara possibly helped the top brass of the Assam Cricket Association to stay in their posts for one more term.
The new committee:
President: Gautam Roy.
Vice-presidents: Himanta Biswa Sharma, Rockybul Hussain, Rup Kamal Kakati, Babul Hore, Abdul Gaffar Zaman, Brojen Gohain and Rani Narah.
