Dalmiya resigns from Asian Cricket Council and Afro-Asian Cricket Cooperation

MUMBAI: Close on the heels of Sharad Pawar being elected the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president early this week, former BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya has put in his resignation ''with immediate effect'' from the positions of the president of Asian Cricket Council (ACC) and the Afro-Asian Cricket Corporation (AACC).

According to agency reports, Dalmiya, in a letter addressed to Pawar, said, "I had the privilege of being the president of the Asian Cricket Council from 2001-02 and the president of the Afro-Asian Cricket Cooperation from 2004-05. I was in fact the first president of the AACC being elected unanimously. In the wake of the recent changes in the BCCI, I feel that it is only appropriate that I tender my resignation with immediate effect from both the positions."

He added, "Nonetheless, I can assure you of my full support and cooperation as and when required on any matter concerning Indian or International cricket."

Dalmiya chose to resign before Pawar could nominate his own candidates for the two presidencies.

Dalmiya has also been the president of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and for almost two decades he was the most powerful man in Indian cricket.
