SC accepts Lodha panel recommendations for reforming cricket

The Supreme Court accepted on Monday most recommendations of a panel on how to reform the way cricket is run India and gave the country’s cricket board six months to implement the proposals.

The top court set up the Lodha committee in January 2014 after allegations of betting and spot-fixing surfaced in the Indian Premier League.

Chief Justice of India TS Thakur  in an emotional appeal to the board, said - 




We hope this will bring some reform. It’s for the younger generation. We may not be in the system.


The three-member panel led by former chief justice of India RM Lodha had suggested a raft of administrative changes at the BCCI, which runs the sport in the country.

The recommendations include suggestions to delink the Indian Premier League and BCCI, age restrictions for the board’s office bearers and a ‘one state, one vote’ policy, which would mean only cricketing bodies representing a state would have full membership and voting rights in the BCCI.

The proposals also say no minister or civil servant can be a part of the BCCI and a nominee from the Comptroller and Auditor General will be included in the board.
