Rathnakar Shetty to inaugurate Udupi Cricket Association

MANGALORE : Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Administrative officer Rathnakar Shetty will inaugurate the Udupi District Cricket Association (UDCA) on Sunday at 6 pm.
On this occasion, Executive Committee Members of the newly formed Association will be inducted by former test player and Karnataka Cricket Academy director. They are Dr. H S Ballal (Honorary President), Dr. Krishna Prasad (President) and Prabhakar Shetty as secretary.

The move to form UDCA was initiated on November 16, 2011 at Manipal University under the leadership of Dr Ballal, Pro-Chancellor of Manipal University. As many as 35 cricket fans of Udupi District attended the discussion and gave some valuable suggestion and comments in organizing a strong and powerful cricket association at Udupi District.

Dr Krishna Prasad was unanimously nominated to take the lead and form a team of workers to promote cricket in the district. Some cricketers who were already involved in cricketing activities joined hands to draft by laws and study the feasibility of Udupi separating from the Mangalore zone. That is how Udupi District Cricket Association was formed.

UDCA is presently a registered body under the society act Government of Karnataka and the members want to activate as an official cricket body under the affiliation of Karnataka State Cricket Association Bangalore.
