The under-fire Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) will hold its Special General Meeting on December 2 in New Delhi to discuss the Status Report filed by the Supreme Court appointed Justice RM Lodha Committee.
"Yes, we will be having Special General Meeting (SGM) in New Delhi on December 2. The agenda is to discuss the Status Report filed by the Lodha Committee," a senior BCCI official said.
The BCCI is supposed to file a Compliance report in Supreme Court on December 3 with the court's next proceedings on December 5. It has been learnt that during the meeting of treasurers' of all state associations in Mumbai, BCCI president Anurag Thakur discussed the ongoing problems at length.
"The president said that the problem with BCCI has been that we have not been very good at engaging with the general public about the kind of work BCCI has done to improve the cricketing standard in the country – be it creating infrastructure or by generating funds which also meant that cricketers had more financial security," a state association official said.
It was learnt that media managers of state associations will be told to upgrade the websites and also update the common public about what kind of benefits players have had in recent years playing IPL.
"There is a lot of negative perception about IPL. It was discussed if state associations in their websites could put up videos telling stories of cricketers from the hinterland of their states and have made it big in the IPL. How their lives changed post IPL and made them better cricketers." he said.
