Anurag Thakur denies asking ICC to intervene in Lodha recommendations

Anurag Thakur

This office bearer also said BCCI president Anurag Thakur would file the personal affidavit that the court had asked of him on Monday.

However, when Thakur sought "clarification" from him, Manohar said he had said that the presence of a CAG nominee on BCCI would amount to government interference when the matter was pending before the top court.

During the hearing, Amicus Curiae Gopal Subramaniam requested the apex court to appoint an administrator or ask the Lodha Committee to do so.

The lawyer representing the BCCI, Kapil Sibal, sought more time from the court to "persuade" the board's state associations to implement the recommendations.

However, if the court is not convinced, it might appoint an administrator straightaway.

BCCI president Anurag Thakur is the man in the spotlight.

"We have chose to give the Test Team Rs 1 crore cash prize for becoming the No. 1 team in the world but again for this to happen, we will have to go back to the Lodha committee for approval".

Given the Court's no-nonsense attitude, however, the BCCI is braced for the worst. He also demanded initiation of civil as well as criminal contempt against them to ensure that the majesty of law prevailed.

He said the BCCI has difficulty with the Lodha Committee recommendation of one State-one vote, taking away the founding members of the apex cricketing body like Bombay and Baroda and 15 days' interval between the national cricket calendar and the Indian Premier League (IPL).

A bench led by Chief Justice of India TS Thakur had earlier emphasised that transparency, fairness, and objectivity were most important aspects in all decisions including disbursal of funds by BCCI. "Right now, there is more confusion in the state associations on how to implement the recommendations, I think we need more clarity", he said.

Sibal further said that they do need approval from three-fourth members. Sibal also questioned the objective of recommendation to have three or five selectors for selecting the team and asked does it serve the goal of transparency? Thakur was asked to clarify whether he had sought ICC intervention against the implementation of the Lodha Committee's recommendations, as ICC chief executive David Richardson had said last month. Defendants of status-quo have highlighted the impressive success of India in worldwide cricket, stressing that the current set-up of board has created a system of identifying, honing, nurturing and promoting the best of talents from across the nation.

The apex court had on October 7 postponed its hearing on the spat between the BCCI and Lodha Committee till Monday, while holding that the recommendations of the panel matter.

It observed that the court could not help the BCCI unless the latter makes its stand clear on all the recommendations by the Lodha panel that the Board has accepted and also those which it would implement within a time frame.
