New Delhi: BCCI will tell the Supreme Court on August 11 whether it will pay Rs.10 lakh remuneration to Justice Dharam Pal Sinha who has agreed to conduct the Bihar Cricket Association (BCA) election after rival factions agreed to bury the hatchet and hold polls after a gap of seven years.

The apex court bench adjourned the hearing on BCA’s plea after senior counsel Amit Sibal, appearing for BCCI, told the court he would respond to the plea only after getting instructions from the apex cricketing body.

BCA has also moved the apex court seeking its nod for holding elections.

Sibal told the court that as a matter of policy, BCCI does not interfere in the intra-faction feuds of state bodies and indicated its reluctance to foot the bill for Justice Sinha for conducting the elections.
