Media has failed to highlight my contribution to Indian cricket
About 4,000 members of the KSCA from diverse backgrounds will participate in the elections for the next four-year term.
"I always believed that cricketers are the right people to administer the game in any association. I had the honour of serving the KSCA as its honorary secretary for the past 12 years," Patel said a day after he decided to step aside and not to contest the ensuing elections.
