Wadiyar was overwhelmed as he won along his group won, in the body’s elections, all 24 seats were won by convincing the margins.

After the last election Wadiyar said, “I and the recently elected secretary Brijesh Patel, have decided to come together in the interest of KSCA members. I have worked on this arrangement for the last three years as my team will try to reduce the financial burden of clubs.”

Brijesh Patel said, “The first priority was to see Karnataka doing well in Ranji Trophy and revive junior cricket. Bagging all 24 seats is a great mandate, but Wadiyar's team has a great responsibility to deliver in next three years in all areas.”

At the KSCA annual general body meeting Wadiyar which was held late night had polled 923 votes out of the total 1,351 cast to regain the post of president, which he held for three years from 2007.

Opponent Sadananda Maiya managed just 428 votes. Patel, seeking re-election as secretary, got the biggest thumbs-up from members, with 977 votes as against 374 for opponent A V Jayaprakash.
