BCCI turns down the Supreme Court as the court’s appointed new Lodha committee for the monitoring of BCCI has performed many actions which has upset the board. The board has now decided not to be apologetic for its gestures and has claimed that the board would pull out of the world cricket calendar if it is forced to adopt the new set of rules and regulations.
In doing so, a section of BCCI members said that starting from the third Test match between India and New Zealand, from October 8 in Indore, the board will seriously mull staying out of all international cricket. Despite there being little or no clarity on how they would take such a drastic step, BCCI members were adamant that the new panel of administrators likely to be set up by the apex court to replace the current lot will still be unable to implement the recommendations, because it would require a 2/3rd majority from all member associations.
The President Anurag Thakur said, “he was pained when the court named IPL an “Extravagant event”. The court has provided the board a final ultimatum of a day to adapt the rules and regulations that has been provided by the Lodha committee.”
