By Kushan Sarkar Kolkata, Jan 16 (PTI) The difference in opinion among BCCI top brass once again came to the fore as acting president CK Khanna, treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhry and senior member Rajiv Shukla were apparently not kept in the loop over the scheduling of the historic Test against Afghanistan. BCCI secretary Amitabh Choudhary and CEO Rahul Johri today announced that Bengaluru will host the memorable Test between India and Afghanistan from June 14-18. It will be Afghanistans first-ever five-day match. The normal convention as per BCCI constitution is that any decision with regards to venue and date of international matches is taken by tours and fixtures sub committee. President, secretary and treasurer are ex officio members of that committee while Shukla, a senior Congressman is also a part of that panel. “Yes, neither secretary nor treasurer was kept in the loop about the decision as one needs to call a sub committee meeting as per protocol. The decision to play Afghanistan was taken at general body forum (SGM in December) and now the members were bypassed when date and venue is announced,” a senior office bearer told PTI today. While Shukla was unavailable for comment, it can be confirmed that even he was not in the know of things. BCCI CEO Rahul Johri was unavailable for comment but an official close to secretary Choudhary said that as of now there is no requirement of taking any permission from the tours and fixtures committee. “The secretary has been entrusted with the powers of taking a decision on all ICC matters,” an official close to a ruling faction said. However, the aggrieved members believe that Supreme Court, when it gave its views on ICC matters, meant that it was pertaining to world governing council meetings and not international fixtures. The India-Afghanistan Test will be a historic first for the war-ravaged nation where cricket has become the most popular sport. Their leg spinner Rashid Khan Armaan is a sought after player across T20 leagues and their junior team recently beat Pakistan in the U-19 World Cup opener. PTI KHS BS BSadvertisement

Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals In today’s economy, a project requires vision, commitment and funding to make it off the ground. And when it comes to execution of these business essentials, entrepreneurs in every field can learn something from those in commercial real estate.Related: Biggest Failures, Best Advice and Defining Success From 14 Inspiring EntrepreneursThe feasibility factorBefore committing time and money to a project, a real estate developer takes steps to investigate all possible outcomes. Referred to as a feasibility study, the developer’s preliminary research covers all legal, economic, financial and technological factors.The feasibility study is comprised of analysis of the market, location, usage concept, competition and risk involved in the project. Armed with that information in a written report, the developer decides whether or not to move forward.Many new entrepreneurs dive headfirst into product development without making a true business case for the app, platform or service, only to be surprised later when costs skyrocket, regulatory hurdles arise or they face an unreceptive market.Lesson: If you don’t analyze risks and market forces before you build, you’re setting yourself up to fail.Proper planningOnce they decide to pursue a project, developers put all of the planning and coordination on their shoulders. That includes scouting and purchasing land, creating a project team, securing permissions and licenses, financing the deal and managing construction. All of that tends to happen over a short period, often just several months.But despite the broad scope of those efforts, experienced developers typically juggle multiple projects at a time. How? Through realistic business and project planning. A developer drafts an initial pro forma plan as soon as he launches a project, revising it along the way. Even an informal outline helps keep the project rooted in timelines, budgets and goals.Lesson: Map out objectives and strategies early on. Revisit them regularly to stay in touch with your progress.Related: The Best Business Advice You’ll Ever GetSmart syndicationCommercial real estate deals typically involve a sophisticated financing structure including both debt and equity capital. The different types of capital are arranged in what’s called the capital stack — a structure which dictates the order of claims to investment returns.Depending on project specifics, a developer may syndicate a portion of the capital stack. Syndication — which has been around for decades — is a pre-cursor to crowdfunding. It’s a defined process whereby developers divvy up some of the equity among a group of investors, often high-net-worth individuals in their network. Right up front, investors are informed about the investment terms, project timeline and return projections.The organized nature of syndication makes it easier for developers to raise funds efficiently. Without a similar framework, a business’s efforts to pursue capital can be haphazard. Often, they fail to close investors because they don’t have — or don’t communicate — a compelling exit strategy.Lesson: Approach capital raising with a structured strategy. Make it clear to investors how you plan to earn them returns.The reputation gameReal estate developers are adept at converting personal colleagues into investors. That’s partly because they emphasize ROI, but also because they know that investing isn’t just about making money: It’s about backing someone you trust.Developers build reputations over time as they complete projects. Investors care about what a developer has accomplished, who his partners are and how his investors fared in the past. The same is true of startup investors.Recognize from the start that until you can back up your pitch with past performance, new audiences will be hesitant to invest in you. That’s why it’s crucial to keep your network informed, engaged and motivated to be part of your success.Lesson: Focus on becoming a known commodity by building a verifiable reputation for success. Compel the people who trust you to invest.Related: 5 Things Entrepreneurs Should Know About Real Estate March 25, 2015
