Anurag Singh Thakur added, “during my recent visit to Bihar, I got representations of at least 17 organisations to start cricket once again in Bihar and similarly I’ve got representations of various organisations in Uttarakhand, who have lost on playing opportunity after bifurcation of Uttar Pradesh.” ​
