Lodha Committee Report: Bishan Singh Bedi hails suggested reforms for BCCI

New Delhi: Former Indian cricket captain Bishan Singh Bedi on Monday welcomed Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee's suggested reforms for the BCCI but cautioned that there could be attempts to "find loopholes" and sidestep the panel's suggestions.

The Lodha Committee has recommended sweeping reforms and an administrative shake-up for the BCCI by suggesting that ministers be barred from occupying positions, a cap put on the age and tenure of the office-bearers and legalisation of betting.

Bedi shared his thoughts through his official account on Twitter.

 

In a series of drastic reforms, the three-member panel, headed by Justice (Retd) R M Lodha, also suggested one unit should represent one state, while taking away the voting rights of institutional and city-based units.

The committee also suggested the restructuring of the BCCI's administrative set-up, proposing the position of a CEO accountable to a nine-member apex council.

Addressing a crowded press conference after submitting a 159-page report to the Supreme Court, which will decide whether these recommendations would be binding on the BCCI, Lodha said he held 38 meetings with Board officials, cricketers and other stakeholders.
