BCCI ready to adopt Lodha reforms barring five key points

first_imgThe Special General Meeting (SGM) of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), which took place in Mumbai on Wednesday, is over with the board passing a resolution in which it decided to adopt the Lodha reforms barring five particular points.The reforms that have not been implemented are one state one vote,the size of the national selection panel, the size of the apex councilwhile the last one covers age cap and tenure of office-bearers.The @BCCI unanimously adopts all Lodha panel reforms barring five: Acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary- Press Trust of India (@PTI_News) July 26, 2017But these five issues are the ones which cover almost everything and pave the way for many, including former board president N. Srinivasan to make a comeback.Here are the issues which BCCI decided are impractical to implement.1. Matters pertaining to membership i.e retention of full membership structure as it stands now including Railways.  2. Distribution of powers and functions of executives.3. Constitution of the Apex council. Five office bearers, the BCCI isn’t too happy with the size of the council like it has one Vice President and it can’t cover the entire length and breadth of the country.4. Number of selectors not accepting 3 members.5. Restrictions on age and tenure and disqualification of govt servants and ministers. BcCI feels Railways can’t have an office bearer who is not a govt servant.It has been more than a year since the Supreme Court ordered the BCCI to implement the reforms recommended by the Justice R M Lodha-led panel.advertisementEarlier in the week, the Supreme Court barred former BCCI officials N Srinivasan and Niranjah Shah from attending any board meeting.They both are above 70 years of age and stand disqualified to be BCCI office-bearers as per Lodha reforms.The BCCI brass is happy that the Supreme Court is ready to hear some of the reforms that they have always found practically difficult to implement.The SC will be hearing the arguments on ‘One State One Vote’ and pruning of the national selection committee which the BCCI has always termed as unimplementable.”Look, the Supreme Court has given us new hope when they stated that they will hear some of the contentious issues once again. They have directed the BCCI to adopt as many reforms as possible.”So, when the Supreme Court hears the case on August 18, at least they are aware that we have adopted a majority of the reforms,” a state unit member from west zone had earlier said.”During that particular general body meeting, the members had agreed that around 80 percent of the reforms can be accepted. Also the special committee that was formed recently has also brought down the gamut of difficulties to four.”Therefore, if the unimplementable reforms are down to four, we can always accept the other reforms,” the official added.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more
