Stop funding of state affiliates opposing reforms: SC

New Delhi, Oct 6 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Thursday said it will pass an order on Friday that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will not disburse funds to its state affiliates if they refuse to carry out organisational reforms recommended by the Justice R.M. Lodha Committee and subsequently endorsed by it.

The bench of Chief Justice Tirath Singh Thakur, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud decided to pass an order in this regard after senior counsel Kapil Sibal, appearing for the country’s apex cricketing body, told the apex court that it would be difficult for it to give an unconditional undertaking that it would hold back funding of its state affiliates if they resist organisational reforms.
