The Indian Cricketers’ Association will have the status of a not-for-profit company, states the notice.
Two members of the association will get a representation in the nine-member BCCI Apex Council. “As per the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s judgment of August 9, 2018, and the BCCI’s Constitution registered on August 21, 2018, (“BCCI Constitution”) two members of the nine-member BCCI Apex Council are to be nominated by the Association from amongst themselves, one male and one female,” states the notice.
All former players who meet the eligibility criteria for membership will have to submit their interest with their respective State cricket association. The application should be submitted with the proof of the player’s eligibility for the ICA membership.
A player can only submit his or her interest with one State association, which has represented as a cricketer or the one that has jurisdiction over the player’s place of residence.
The State associations will provide to the BCCI with a list of the applicants.
