Earlier in the day, Shri Parimal Nathwani, outgoing Vice President of GCA in a Facebook post announced he was stepping down from the post of Vice President of GCA as per the recommendations of Lodha Committee appointed by Supreme Court. Parimalbhai said in larger interest of GCA and Gujarat Cricket, he will continue to contribute his best. He said, ‘I got associated with GCA in 2008-09 and am proud to have served Gujarat Cricket for nearly 10 years. I express my gratitude to the then president of GCA and then Chief Minister of Gujarat and now Honourable Prime Minister of India Shri Narendrabhai Modi and to Home Minister of India and president of GCA Shri Amitbhai Shah for giving me an opportunity to serve Gujarat Cricket. I am also thankful to all the office-bearers & members of the executive committee, employees, players, and the media fraternity. It is because of your support, guidance, and cooperation from time to time that we as GCA will be gifting ‘the World’s Largest Cricket Stadium’ in near future to the cricketing fraternity and lovers of the game. In short, I am happy that my tenure with GCA as an office-bearer had been very fruitful and satisfactory.’
