Lodha Committee Gives Indian Cricket Board Until Oct. 15 To Implement Reforms
The Indian Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee has "directed the Indian cricket board to implement 15 key constitutional reforms," as mandated by the Supreme Court, by Oct. 15, according to Ravi Teja Sharma of the ECONOMIC TIMES. Speculation on whether the Board of Control for Cricket in India officials would attend the meeting called by the Lodha committee ended when Board Secretary Ajay Shirke "met the committee for around an hour and a half." In the meeting, the committee "also asked BCCI to file its first compliance report on implementation" by Aug. 25. Shirke, however, told the committee that "the board will file a review petition with the Supreme Court." He also "appraised the committee about the practical issues that BCCI would face in implementing reforms such as one state, one vote, among others" (ECONOMIC TIMES, 8/9).
