In­dian board re­jects re­form rec­om­men­da­tions

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

THE In­dian Cricket Board (BCCI) has re­jected some of the Supreme Court’s key rec­om­men­da­tions aimed at ad­min­is­tra­tive re­form, a move that could bring sanc­tions from the coun­try’s high­est ju­di­cial body.

The Court ac­cepted in July most of the rec­om­men­da­tions of the Lodha Com­mit­tee, a three­mem­ber panel it set up to look into the op­er­a­tions of the world’s rich­est cricket board, which is run by politi­cians and busi­ness­men and has been crit­i­cised for a per­ceived lack of trans­parency.

In their re­port, for­mer chief jus­tice of In­dia RM Lodha and two of his col­leagues rec­om­mended age and ten­ure re­stric­tions for top of­fi­cials, as well as ban­ning them from serv­ing suc­ces­sive terms.

The BCCI, af­ter a marathon spe­cial gen­eral meet­ing on Satur­day, said in a state­ment it had adopted “im­por­tant rec­om­men­da­tions” made by the com­mit­tee but made no men­tion of the age and ten­ure rec­om­men­da­tions nor a “one state/one vote” pol­icy.

BCCI pres­i­dent Anurag Thakur said a de­tailed re­port would be sent to the Lodha Com­mit­tee and sub­mit­ted to the Supreme Court, which has sched­uled the next hear­ing in the case for Thurs­day.
