Lodha Committee recommneds, separate governing bodies for BCCI, IPL

New Delhi, Jan 4 (IANS) The Justice R.M. Lodha Committee on Monday proposed separate governing bodies for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Indian Premier League (IPL) in a bid to partially segregate their functioning.

Submitting its report to the Supreme Court, it suggested reforms in the Indian cricket board and announced a slew of measures, among them that the IPL governing body should be of nine members with the secretary and the treasurer of the BCCI being its ex-officio members.

Two other members of the IPL governing council will be nominated or elected by the full members. Of the remaining five, two will be the nominees of franchises, one will be a representative of the players association (so one needs to be formed) and one will a nominee of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

Among other announcements, the panel also said that one state should have only one BCCI member.

It also stated that the office bearers should not be aged more than 70 and that they should not be ministers or government servants.
