Supreme Court has done its best to have the BCCI implement the Lodha panel’s sweeping reforms, said the committee’s Chairman Justice (Retd) R M Lodha after the apex court asked the Cricket Board to not disburse funds to its state until they abide by the recommendations.
“If the Supreme Court has done something, it must be for the implementation of its judgement on July 18. The court has done what it thought was best for having its order implemented. Let’s see to what extent the order is carried out by the BCCI,” said Lodha.
Besides freezing the financial transactions between BCCI and its state bodies, the Supreme Court also directed BCCI President Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke to give undertaking on affidavit, before the Lodha panel and in apex court by December 3, stating how much time they would need to implement the reforms.
Lodha said the committee remains open to talking to BCCI top-brass including Thakur to talk about the road ahead.
“If he (Thakur) comes, we will definitely interact with him. As a matter of fact we had invited him on August 9 but he did not come,” he added.
