Supreme Court Allows BCCI To Disburse Funds To Host First Test Against England In Rajkot

Supreme Court has allowed Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to incur expenses of Rs 58.66 lakhs in order to efficiently host the first Test of the series against England. The first Test had come under trouble earlier in the day when BCCI had sought Supreme Court’s intervention with no funds available to pay for bills for the visiting England team. BCCI was barred from disbursing funds after being rapped by the court for non-compliance with the Lodha panel reforms.
