  1. 1. Board of Control for Cricket in India as an organization depicts a distinct organizational behavior pattern. Identify and Explain. Section-B Group 5
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION  The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), headquartered at Mumbai, India, is the national governing body for all cricket in India.  The board was formed in December 1928 as BCCI replaced Calcutta Cricket Club. It is a member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) & has the authority to select players, umpires and officials to participate in international events and exercises total control over them.
  4. 4. BRIEF HISTORY In 1912, an all-India cricket team visited England for the first time, sponsored and captained by the Maharaja of Patiala, and featured the best cricketers of the time from India. In 1926, two representatives of the Calcutta Cricket Club traveled to London to attend a couple of meetings of the Imperial Cricket Conference, the predecessor to the current International Cricket Council. Although technically not an official representative of Indian cricket, it was allowed to attend by Lord Harris, chairman of the conference. The outcome of the meeting was to send a team to India, led by Arthur Gilligan, who had captained England in The Ashes.
  5. 5.  In a meeting with the Maharaja of Patiala and others, Gilligan praised Indian cricket and promised to press for its inclusion in the ICC if all the promoters of the game in the land came together to establish a single controlling body. An assurance was given and a meeting held in Delhi on 21 November 1927, attended by delegates from all over the country and a consensus was reached to create a board for control of cricket in India. Another meeting, on 10 December 1927, brought a unanimous decision to form a "provisional" board of control to represent cricket in India. In December 1928, the BCCI was formed despite having onlysix associations affiliated to it as against the earlier- decided eight. R. E. Grant Govan was made its first president and Anthony De Mello its first secretary.
  6. 6. BEHAVIOR IN THE ORGANIZATION Personality and attitude: As a member of the International Cricket Council (ICC), it has the authority to select players, umpires and officials to participate in international events and exercises total control over them. Without its recognition, no competitive cricket involving BCCI- contracted Indian players can be hosted within or outside the country.
  7. 7. Perception :  The question of prime importance as the role of BCCI has never been clearly articulated. During the deposition, in clarification to a question raised as to the exact nature of BCCI, whether it is a regulator (defacto or dejure) or an enterprise or a completely different body that needs defining, BCCI stated that it is not a regulator.  BCCI further elaborated that the team which participates in International events is representative of BCCI and not India.  Despite these assertions, BCCI both in their written and oral submissions refer alternatively to their role either as custodian of cricket or organizer of events depending on the role considered appropriate for the circumstances.  For instance, in certain submissions has referred to its role in setting the rules and regulations of the game which are considered as regulatory activities.
  8. 8.  At the outset it is to be noted that BCCI has no ‘statutory status’, but their actions in terms of laying down the rules of the game and team selection fall within the ambit of a regulatory role. This status arises on account of the institutional form of BCCI and its inter-linkages with ICC.  Another evidence of BCCI as being a de facto regulator and the team participating in International events being Indian team and not a representative of BCCI is found in the ICC guidelines specifying full member criteria. expressly states the performance of ‘national team as one of the parameters.  ICC very clearly declares that the members of ICC are the custodian of sport of cricket. The word ‘custodian’ clearly highlights the intent of ICC and its members to regulate/control the sport of cricket in their respective jurisdictions.
  9. 9. Motivation :  In this broad based objective, BCCI is involved in selection of Team India to represent India in international events, to work for development of cricket by arranging training camps etc. as well as organizing the game.  These activities fall under the custodian function of BCCI, however, the aspect of ‘organization’ brings in activities contributing to the revenues of BCCI such as grant of media rights, sale of tickets etc.  The dependence of competitors on BCCI for sanctioning of the events and dependence of players and consumers for the same reason has been total. BCCI knowing this had foreclosed the competition by openly declaring that it was not going to sanction any other event.
  10. 10. Learning:  BCCI’s economic power is enormous as a regulator that enables it to pick winners.  BCCI has gained tremendously from IPL format of the cricket in financial terms.  Virtually, there is no other competitor in the market nor was anyone allowed to emerge due to BCCI’s strategy of monopolizing the entire market.  The policy of BCCI to keep out other competitors and to use their position as a defacto regulatory body has prevented many players who could have opted for the competitive league.  BCCI undermined the moral responsibility of a custodian and defacto regulator.
  11. 11. DYNAMICS OF ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR LEADERSHIP  BCCI holds a monopoly, but it should be treated on a different footing owing to the unique nature of the market for professional sports league and the pro- competitive effects of the existence of single professional sports league.  This is especially true in situations like that of BCCI where it is not acting for profit, because that means the negative effects of monopoly, including seeking economic rent from the activity, do not take place.
  12. 12. EMPOWERMENT AND PARTICIPATION  The historical evolution of BCCI enabled it to attain a monopoly status, a first-mover advantage, in the organization of cricket events in India. But the position that BCCI has attained today could not have come without the support of Government of India.  BCCI has been a beneficiary on account of provision of land for stadiums at subsidized rates, tax exemptions in the past even if no specific earmarked grants by govt.have been given. In substance the ‘first mover’ advantage and the implicit recognition by govt. as the national association for cricket, have contributed to the present status of BCCI.
  13. 13. CONFLICT WITH ICC  In recent times, the BCCI has been at odds with the ICC on Future Tours Program. It has formed unilateral arrangements to allow more series between India and Australia and England.  In 2009, ICC and BCCI were in disagreement over the WADA, "Whereabouts clause“  BCCI is currently in a cold war situation with ICC over the use of Umpire Decision Review System (UDRS). It is totally against the use of UDRS in ICC events. It also influenced poor Cricket Boards like South Africa and Zimbabwe against implementation of UDRS.
  14. 14. The BCCI has been known to use its power to influence certain ICC decisions. These included scheduling, player suspensions and ICC appointments. As India is by far the biggest market in terms of international cricket revenue, the BCCI's opinions tend to gain a large weighting within the ICC's decision making process, with other cricketing nations unwilling to oppose due the potential loss of financial benefits associated with Indian cricket. After the controversial 2007/08 Sydney test between Australia and India, the BCCI suggested to the ICC to withdraw controversial umpire Steve Bucknor for the rest of the tour, replacing him with New Zealand umpire Billy Bowden. Additionally, an immediate three-match ban imposed on Harbhajan Singh for alleged racial abuse was suspended and later lifted after the charges were proven to be false in an ICC disciplinary hearing. The hearing was initiated only after the BCCI threatened to withdraw the Indian team from the tour unless the ban was lifted. The BCCI was accused by other cricketing nations of unfairly utilizing its power to pressure the ICC into making concessions for them, whilst the ICC in turn was accused of being 'spine-less'.
  16. 16.  The new draft of the sports bill, presented to sports ministry, makes it mandatory for all sports federations to comply with chapter IV (unethical practices in sports) and chapter IX (applicability of Right to Information Act) of the bill.  The Indian cricket board (BCCI), which has expressed its reservations against RTI, may well find itself flouting the clause.
  17. 17. DECISION MAKING IN BCCI  Decision making process -a truly democratic way. Specified decisions are taken at special/annual general meetings.  Various administrative/other decisions are taken at working committee meetings.  Various aspects of administration is deliberated and recommended by various committees under the overall superintendence of the president.
