Former Test wicketkeeper Kiran More on Sunday resigned as Secretary of Baroda Cricket Association (BCA), clearing the way for his joining the Indian Cricket League (ICL) recently launched by Zee Television.
More announced his decision at the BCA's Management Committee meeting in Vadodara on Sunday, which was convened in the wake of a BCCI letter asking its members and players to disassociate from unapproved tournaments.
The Committee accepted More's resignation and thanked him for his contribution in the development of Baroda cricket.
More, former chief selector said the decision to quit the BCA was a "painful" one.
"I had my personal reasons to join ICL. I am joining from tomorrow. It was a painful decision because I have closely worked with the BCA and the BCCI in various capacities." Meanwhile, the BCA has decided to form various committees for organising the One-Day International match between India and Australia here on October 11.
