BCCI vice-president CK Khanna named principal advisor to World T20 committee
Khanna will supervise the World T20 matches held at Ferozshah Kotla stadium in Delhi
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) vice-president C.K. Khanna was on Tuesday appointed the principal advisor to the supervisory committee for the ICC World T20 matches to he held at the Ferozeshah Kotla stadium in New Delhi.
The appointment was made by retired Justice Mukul Mudgal who has been asked by the Delhi high court to supervise the World T20 matches to be held in the capital. Mudgal had formed the supervisory committee to oversee the Delhi and District Cricket Association's (DDCA) preparations for the World T20.
The five-member supervisory committee consists of Justice Mudgal, Amrit Mathur (BCCI representative), M.V. Sridhar (tournament director), Sunil Valson (former cricketer and GMR representative) and Suresh Chopra (veteran DDCA official).
"Justice Mukul Mudgal (retd) has appointed senior DDCA and BCCI vice-President C.K. Khanna as principal advisor to Supervisory committee constituted by him for T20 World Cup matches," DDCA vice-president Chetan Chauhan said in a statement on Tuesday.
Khanna, who is also a senior DDCA official, was not included in the 12-member organising committee formed by Justice Mudgal. This had prompted DDCA working president Chetan Chauhan to write to him, requesting changes in the organising committee list.
The Ferozeshah Kotla Stadium is scheduled to host four matches during the World T20 which will be played from March 8 to April 3.
The capital will host its first match on March 23 with England taking on a Qualifier in the Super 10 Group 1. The second tie will be another Super 10 Group 1 match where England meet Sri Lanka.
On March 28, South Africa will meet Sri Lanka and the first semi-final will be held at the Ferozeshah Kotla on March 30.
