BCCI misses first SC deadline; SGM adjourned till Saturday

Mumbai, Sep 30 (IANS) Having already missed the first deadline to implement the Justice R.M. Lodha Committee’s recommendations, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was on Friday forced to adjourn its Special General Meeting (SGM) on technical grounds.

The national cricket board adjourned its SGM after it was discovered that some of the authority letters from different associations representing their respective states were defective.

The BCCI will now meet on Saturday to take a decision on the committee’s reforms, which effectively means that the board has missed the apex court’s September 30 deadline for implementing the Lodha panel recommendations to bring in sweeping reforms.

The board had drawn the Supreme Court’s ire on Wednesday with the special bench headed by Chief Justice T.S. Thakur warning it to either “fall in line” or face the music.

The BCCI has time till October 6 to respond to the Lodha Committee’s status report.

The current BCCI officials have openly voiced their objections to the reforms suggested by the Lodha panel, especially on the three-year cooling off period for those holding office in the board or its state associations and the policy of one state-one vote.
