Controversies

  • 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.
