Baffled at the BCCI for not implementing Justice Lodha committee recommendation, the honourable Supreme Court has barred the apex cricket board of the country from releasing any more funds to its state associates. The Board can’t make any further payments to state bodies without their official nod to the BCCI’s proposed organizational reforms. The matter is now postponed until its next hearing on October 17.
This year, BCCI has already given funds to 17 state cricket associations. But Supreme Court today has asked these state bodies not to spend the funds without passing a motion to implement SC ordered reforms. At least, 13 more state cricket bodies are yet to receive funds from the BCCI.
Options Before The BCCI
The Supreme Court had advised two alternatives to the board – appoint a panel of experienced administrators to look into the transition in the Board or ask the Lodha Committee to do the same.
