New Delhi : The Supreme Court on Friday adjourned the hearing regarding the Justice (Retd.) R.M Lodha-led committee’s recommendations and the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) constant reluctance to accept all recommendations till December 14.
Last week, the BCCI had conducted a Special General Meeting (SGM) to discuss as to how they would respond to the Lodha committee’s demands for radical changes in the Indian cricket board. Following the meeting, the BCCI’s firm stance opposing Lodha panel recommendations continued, with secretary Ajay Shirke revealing that the board members will abide by the decision they had taken during the first SGM on October 1.
On October 1, the board had accepted many of the “significant recommendations” of the Lodha Committee, however, it excluded the important ones which have been a bone of contention between the cricket body and the Lodha Panel.
The recommendations, which have still not been accepted by the 30-member committee, include one-state one-vote, age limit of 70 years, cooling-off period of three years which included the tenure of the administrators, continue with the five-selectors and retaining the powers of the president.
