15

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has decided to approach the Supreme Court against the recommendations submitted in the report by the Justice R.M. Lodha committee.

The BCCI had convened a special general meeting at its headquarters here on Friday in which the members authorised secretary Anurag Thakur to file an affidavit in the apex court on the board’s behalf, pointing out the anomalies and difficulties encountered in the implementation of the Lodha committee’s recommendations.

The working committee members also authorised Thakur and BCCI president Shashank Manohar to discuss the governance and financial restructuring of the International Cricket Council (ICC) subject to such restructuring being incorporated in the constitution of the ICC for permanency.

The move is aimed at ending the monopoly of India, Australia and England in the ICC, which has been one of the stated aims of the BCCI chief.

The BCCI also decided to rework the Future Tours Programme (FTP) for the period 2016 to 2023 in order to ensure equitable distribution of matches.
