Bangalore, Nov 11 (UNI) The newly-appointed National Cricket Academy Managing Committee, in its maiden meeting held here today, recommended the upgradation of NCA to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
NCA Director Shivlal Yadav, in a chat with newspersons who met him after the meeting, said the new committee, which met here under the chairmanship of Kapil Dev, felt that the facilities available at the gym were outdated and badly needed to be replaced.
