The PCB appointed RDCA ad-hoc has announced to conduct Rawalpindi Inter-Club Championship 2019 some two months back and tall claims were made that this tournament would be the best till date.
As per PCB constitution, RS 3500 should be charged from fresh clubs, but the RDCA ad-hoc committee has charged around Rs 35,000 from them.
When connected RDCA ad-hoc committee member Wasim Ahmed to seek his point of view, he admitted that a few matches were postponed and they have to prepare pitches.
Earlier, the RDCA
side added 54 to their overnight 196 for seven before being bowled out for 261.
Whilst on the Island, Minister McIlveen took a tour of the RSPBs refurbished West Light Seabird Centre, where she discussed with RSPB NI Director, Joanne Sherwood, the ongoing work between the RSPB, RDCA, and NIEA in protecting marine life and encouraging the return of birds such as the corncrake and chough.
I welcome the positive approach that both RSPB and RDCA take to the protection and management of local wildlife on Rathlin.
We were at the ground at 8:50am well before the organisers and selectors came to conduct the trials, which were started at 11:00 am on the main pitch as the RDCA
failed to prepare the side practice pitches for these important trials.
But all of a sudden, Masood Anwar, who is also former RDCA president and former first class cricketer Asif Farid turned up with bad intent and to sabotage the trials process and tried to pressurise the selectors and misbehaved with selection committee.
So much so they told the RDCA selectors that they would select their own team and will publish the list in the newspapers.
The Minister went on to say: "My Department will continue to provide support to RDCA
, working with other rural stakeholders throughout the lifetime of the project and establishing the Manor House as a thriving social economy enterprise."
