New Delhi: The stand-off between Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Lodha panel might finally come to an end as the Supreme Court is expected to pronounce its verdict on the matter on Monday.
It is important to note that BCCI has been opposing some of the key reform suggested by the Lodha panel like 'One State One Vote, One person One post, age cap & cooling off period'.
Lodha Comitteee's recomendations in totality have been accepted only by BCCI units of Tripura, Vidarbha and Rajasthan.
BCCI has been facing the wrath of Apex Court for failing to implement Lodha panel's recommendations intended to usher in more transparency and accountability in Indian cricket.
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.
However, the BCCI has been defending its action by saying that several recommendations have been rejected by voting in an all-member meeting of BCCI.
