Kolkata, March 27 (IANS) The Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) is set to appoint a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to handle its daily activities. CAB joint secretary Amitabha Banerjee told IANS: “The proposal of appoint a CEO will be placed during the working committee meeting Friday.”

He said the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had asked the state body to appoint a CEO to give a professional approach and style of functioning.

“Now we will propose the matter along with a list of prospective candidates before the working committee,” he said.

Asked if he expected any confrontation on this matter, he said: “This is to make the CAB a more professional unit. Why should anyone object to it?”

“The person has to be a chartered accountant with top managerial experience in a multinational, he should have at least a decade and half’s experience backing his profile. The most important criteria will be his interest in cricket and a wide vision of how to manage its administration,” he said.
