SC disallowed BCCI from releasing funds to state associations; next hearing on October 17

Supreme Court on Friday barred the BCCI from releasing funds to 12 state associations if the Lodha committee reforms are not fully implemented by the national body. The order further stated that they must pass a resolution to implement the reforms or no funds will be disbursed to the state bodies. BCCI in its response said it wasn’t running away from reforms to which the Court replied that the board should move in the right direction in that case.

The Court further sought a personal affidavit from BCCI president Anurag Thakur on his conversation with the ICC president David Richardson on whether he asked the global body to opine whether Lodha panel’s intervention amounted to governmental interference. Earlier, BCCI had refused to give an undertaking that the board would fully comply with the Lodha panel recommendations.

In added blow to the state associations, the Court ordered the 13 state bodies that did receive the funds from BCCI to not use it until they file undertakings to abide by the Lodha panel’s recommendations.

The next hearing has been kept for October 17.

A defiant BCCI had refused to accept the prominent recommendations at its Special General Meeting (SGM) past week and only complied with the smaller points.

The BCCI top brass is under pressure and faces suspension if the Court does order in favour of the panel. The question then remains of what direction the Court takes. It could either hand the baton to new office bearers within the BCCI or ask independent officials to fully implement the suggestions.

In the hearings on Thursday, the Court had come down heavily on BCCI for disbursing Rs 400 crores to the state associations without any transparency and with full knowledge that these bodies weren’t in compliance with the Lodha panel recommendations either.
