The Supreme Court-appointed Justice RM Lodha Panel will meet on August 28 to discuss various issues concerning the BCCI, including the multiple complaints received against the Board. “In the light of several complaints received, Lodha Committee will have an emergent meeting on Sunday 28 August in New Delhi,” a source close to the panel said on Wednesday.
Asked about the nature of the complaints received, the source said: “That’s confidential. The venue of the meeting is undecided.” The issue of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announcing its AGM on September 21 will also come up for discussion. There is every possibility that the Committee uses its discretion and declared the AGM “null and void”.
The BCCI is set to submit its first Compliance Report with regard to implementing the 11-point reforms by October 15. However, during the Working Committee meeting of the BCCI last Monday, it was decided that the Board will wait for the verdict of its Review Petition that has been filed in the Supreme Court. Till the SC verdict is out, the advice to affiliated units is to go slow on the reforms regarding change in constitution of state units.
