Revival Group dominates in Baroda Cricket Association committees too
VADODARA: The Revival Group swept the Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) polls, the results for which were declared in the early hours on Saturday.
The results for the officer bearers’ post may have given some hope to the Royal Group as it won two of the five posts, but the results for the apex council and three committees were clearly in favour of the Revival Group.
By Friday night, Revival Group’s Pranav Amin, Sheetal Mehta and Ajit Patel had been declared winners for the posts of president, vice president and treasurer. The Royal Group, however, was not written off as its candidates Ajit Lele and Parag Patel won posts of secretary and joint secretary. But in the final tally for the 31 places for which polls were held, Revival Group bagged 23 posts while the Royal Group got only eight.
The results for the five-member apex council that were announced past midnight again saw the dominance of the Revival Group with Akin Shah, Kamalkant Pandya and Rashmi Shah winning. From the Royal Group Kalyan Haribhakti and Jay Baxi made the cut.
What seemed like a clear victory for Royal Group turned into dominance when the results for the finance committee, press and publicity committee as well as ground and infrastructure committee started trickling in. Revival Group won six of the seven seats in the finance committee as well as the ground and infrastructure committee even as the Royal Group got merely one seat each in these committees. The Revival Group also won five of the seven seats in the press and publicity team while the Royal Group got two.
