SC reserves order on plea to replace BCCI top brass
The Board of Cricket Control in India may have sealed its own fate. Seeking more time to implement the Lodha Committee’s reformative steps have only prompted the Supreme Court to react harshly.
In the hearing over the matter on Monday the top court said BCCI is deliberately defying its orders. It has now reserved its order on the question of removing its top brass and other issues
The defiant BCCI is still not ready to implement Lodha committee recommendations for reforms in cricket bodies.
Despite the board having its account freezed after court orders, state boards are dilly dallying in accepting the recommendations.
Now the supreme court has to take a call how to go about ensuring the implementation of Lodha committee recommendations.
The Court has reserved the order on whether the BCCI top brass should be removed and on other aspects of implementing the Lodha reforms.
The court also slammed the cricket board and said that the board has shown defiance and obstruction at every stage.
BCCI seeked more time to implement Lodha reforms saying one-state-one-vote difficult to execute.
The amicus curiae Gopal Subramanium said that the BCCI’s “consistent attitude of defiance” warranted the appointment of a panel of administrators.
The Apex Court has reserved its order on directions to be passed to BCCI for implementation of Lodha panel’s recommendations.
