The following is the information available on the leadership of the Academy.
Indian cricketers from NCA
Sunil Gavaskar was a member of the NCA committee in 2000 and resigned after criticism from NCA Chairperson Raj Singh Dungapur on his comments in a newspaper column that it was not correct for NCA trainees to get a tour match at the cost of local teams.
3 Cricketers in the inaugural batch - Murali Karthik, Harbhajan Singh and Nikhil Haldipur were released from the academy citing indiscipline.
In August 2007, Kapil Dev was removed from Chairmanship of the NCA a day after he addressed a press conference about BCCI's rival Indian Cricket League.
