Aditya Verma, the petitioner in the IPL spot-fixing scandal, hailed the Lodha Committee verdict and demanded that BCCI should withdraw N Srinivasan’s nomination as its representative in the ICC.

A Supreme court-appointed Committee headed, headed by former CJI R M Lodha, today held that the betting activities Gurunath Meiyappan, considered the face of CSK owners, and Raj Kundra, co-owner of Rajasthan Royals, have brought the game of cricket, BCCI and IPL into disrepute.

“I am very happy with the verdict of Justice Lodha Committee. Those who have brought disrepute to the game should be done away by the BCCI,” Verma, secretary of unrecognised Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB), told PTI. “I want BCCI to form a special committee and throw N Srinivasan (former BCCI president) out of the Indian Cricket
Board forever,” he added.

Verma also urged the BCCI to cancel Tamil Nadu strongman Srinivasan’s representation in the International Cricket Council (ICC). Srinivasan is the also chairman of the ICC.

“I also request the BCCI to cancel his (Srinivasan’s) BCCI representation in ICC after this verdict. If BCCI does not adhere to my demands then I will take BCCI to court regarding this matter,” threatened Verma.

Asked if BCCI agrees to CSK demerger, Verma said, “The former BCCI president has already opposed it as BCCI incurred
Rs. 50 crore loss because CSK shares being valued at Rs. five lakh.”
