Jagmohan Dalmiya's son Avishek enters sports administration

Updated: 21 June 2013 20:53 IST

The move is seen as a first big step to getting into cricket administration at a time when his 73-year-old father has staged a comeback at the BCCI by being the interim chief after Board president N Srinivasan stepped aside with a pending inquiry into spot-fixing scandal.

Kolkata:

BCCI's interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya's son Avishek has also forayed into sports administration as the 31-year-old will represent Rajasthan Club in the IFA governing body.

"Avishek Dalmiya is being nominated for the governing body. There's another new face this time with Srinjoy Bose representing Bhowanipore," IFA secretary Utpal Ganguli said on Friday.

"They are very busy persons, so timing would be a big factor. We all seek their help and advice and see how it goes," he added.

The Junior Dalmiya, who runs the day-to-day operations of their business, has for the first time entered into the sports administration.

The move is seen as a first big step to getting into cricket administration at a time when his 73-year-old father has staged a comeback at the BCCI by being the interim chief after Board president N Srinivasan stepped aside with a pending inquiry into spot-fixing scandal.

There is a distinct possibility that Avishek will be representing Rajasthan in CAB meetings in near future which will pave the way for becoming an executive functionary of the high-profile Cricket Association of Bengal.
