New Delhi: In the fresh face off between Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Lodha Committee the latter in an application has asked the Supreme Court to sack the office bearers of the cricketing board suggesting that former secretary GK Pillai be appointed as an observer to supervise the board’s administration.
Lodha committee was appointed by the Supreme Court after a betting scandal in the IPL 2013 edition to suggest reforms in the administration of the board. After a year or two of probing various aspects, recommendations, the committee came down heavily on the board this January 4 suggesting some reforms which have been the reasons of its conflict with the cricketing body.
While the panel has stipulated December 3 as the deadline to implement the reforms, BCCI meanwhile is unwilling to do so citing reasons of state associations’ protests against the development. Earlier on November 6, BCCI said since the state bodies are resisting to implement the recommendations, it will be unable to implement it.
The apex court on October 21 had ordered financial limitations on funds to state associations from the BCCI directing unless they pass the reforms followed by an affidavit before Lodha committee, they would not receive any funds.
