Working Group suggestions to be discussed at BCCI meet
With the fate of former IPL champions Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals hanging in balance, the Justice Lodha Committee report and the subsequent recommendations of the Working Group will be the key issue when Working Committee of BCCI meet here on Friday.
This is the Board’s first working committee meeting since the Lodha Committee recommended two-year suspension for CSK and RR in the wake of <g data-gr-id="22">spot-fixing</g> scandal that broke in 2013. However it remains to be seen what the BCCI decides as the Madras High Court on Thursday directed BCCI, India Cements and others involved to submit their <g data-gr-id="16">counter affidavits</g> to the petition which has been filed by CSK Ltd.
The High Court has directed the parties to file their written submissions within a certain time period and the next hearing has been scheduled for September 23.
The two-time champions CSK had moved the Madras HC challenging the suspension. The first bench of the High Court had found the petition maintainable and issued <g data-gr-id="23">notice</g> to the BCCI. The working committee may also see former Board chiefs N Srinivasan and Sharad Pawar representing their respective boards, Tamil Nadu and Mumbai. Srinivasan will be reaching Kolkata on Friday ahead of the meeting.
