BCCI sit tight on Lodha reforms; to wait for SC hearing on December 5

New Delhi, December 2
Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has sustained its opposition to some of the reforms recommended by the Lodha committee, as evident after the latest Special General Meeting (SGM) in Mumbai on Friday (December 2). The Supreme Court ruling on the Lodha panel’s latest status report in the BCCI-Lodha standoff is awaited on Monday (December 5) and it is understood that BCCI has asked the attending state associations to keep a back-up ready in case the court ruling is not in their favour.
“If court gives a verdict, we have to abide by it and change constitution accordingly,” said an official from one said.
BCCI continues to stick to its opposition of few of the key reforms proposed, the most glaring of them being the proposed age cap of 70, a refractory period of three years between two terms at office, and the one-state-one-vote policy.mThe two state associations, Tripura and Vidharba, who have already agreed to implement the recommendations in toto, were absent from the meeting. “There was a feeling members are having different opinion. Vidharbha and Tripura did not come due to fog. We explained the situation and clarified with them again. They reiterated their stand that was taken in the first SGM on October 1. Almost all recommendations agreed upon except a few. We will wait for December 5 Supreme Court hearing,” BCCI Secretary Ajay Shirke said after the meeting.
