BCCI Recognises Indian Cricketers Association For The First Time In History


BCCI recognises Indian Cricketers Association

BCCI for the first time has recognised the Indian Cricketers Association(ICA) as the

formal association for former players. The ICA is aimed at conserving and advancing the welfare of former players. All the other major cricket playing countries already have an association. But the difference is that this association represents only India's former players.The ICA is yet to get affiliation from the Federation Of International Cricketers(FICA).


Currently, the ICA has 3 directors Kapil Dev, Ajit Agarkar ,and Shanta Rangaswamy. The trio will continue till the elections take place for their respective posts. The ICA is the result of Lodha reforms.


The current criteria for membership of the association is as follows-

(1) Male and female ex-cricketers, who have played at least 1 International Cricket Match in any format of the game at the senior level;

(2) Male ex-cricketers, who have played at least 10 First-Class Matches in any format of the game at the senior level; (3) Female ex-cricketers, who have played at least 5 First-Class Matches in any format of the game at the senior level; and (4) Differently-abled ex-cricketers, who have played either International Cricket or first-class cricket, where such cricket is recognized as such by the ICC or the BCCI and is organized by the BCCI or a body recognized by the ICC or the BCCI, in any format of the game at the senior level.
