BCCI respects the Lodha Committee verdict and will abide by the decisions.

Key developments:

After being appointed as the man in charge of the working group, Shukla said the members will be announced in a day’s time.

“House has entrusted me with responsibility to make a small group that will take 6 weeks to submit a report as to how we implement the order and way forward for IPL. How to conduct IPL, how many teams and all stakeholders CAC members, sponsors, broadcasters, state associations, legal experts that report will come to GC and it will go WC which will take decision.

“Members will be announced tomorrow (on Monday). We have decided to implement Justice Lodha verdict in spirit and decided to work accordingly. All stakeholders have given their opinion, everybody is of the view that the show must go on. And I reiterate that IPL 9 will be bigger and greater,” Shukla told PTI.

The IPL chairman, however, refused to reveal the details of Sunday’s meeting and took a jibe at former BCCI president Shashank Manohar for demanding that CSK and RR be terminated.

“We cannot divulge the deliberations of the meeting. A sub-group has been constituted which will recommend what needs to be done. A Supreme Court-appointed committee has deliberated on it (the IPL scandal) and after it has given its verdict, I don’t think there is scope for anybody else to comment,” he said.

BUT THIS CORRUPT VATI-SONI-RAHU-SCAMGRESS (VSRS - new name for Congress Party) is trying to stop the good work. VSRS'' only aim is to STOP GOOD WORK OF MODI. second objective to make RAHU the next PM. 3RD OBJECTIVE IS TO LOOT, SWINDLE SO EACH OF PRIYANKA'S CHILD IS WORTH SEVERAL BILLIONS.. FOUTH OBJECTIVE IS TO DESTROY INDIA, INDIANS AND BOTH HINDU AND MUSLIM RELIGIONS (in order to establish Christian religion in India). PEOPLE BEWARE OF THESE CROOKS

    Nonsense....the latest refusal to act is a defiance of the Apex court judgement....the top br do no seem to deviate into sense despite the overall ire against their flagrant lack of transparency, and accountability..this MUST not be allowed in this country...now the court must act to divest the BCCI [a private body] its power to represent the nation in cricket ...

    What is there to consute a committee on a commiitee rather than abiding by it. This is done how to wrrigle themselves out of the harsh decisions imposed by lodha.
