Committee of Administrators call for BCCI election, new IPL governing council

Commitee of Administrators Special General Body Meeting Women's World Cup 2017 India vs England final

Detailing the election dates of the current office-bearers, it highlights that the "term of the current office-bearers has expired on March 1, that is a period of three years from the date they were elected".

In a strongly-worded seventh Status Report, submitted with the Supreme Court, the CoA has stated that all three current Board office-bearers completed their three-year term on March 1, and so there is an urgent need to convene the annual general body meeting of the world's richest cricket body to elect new office-bearers. Choudhary has said that neither of the office-bearers were consulted nor was he, as convenor, called for a meeting of national selectors for selecting players for central contracts.

Late past year the CoA submitted a final draft of the new BCCI constitution in court, in which it supported all the Lodha Committee's recommendations while further recommending that the powers of two key office bearers in the BCCI - the secretary and the treasurer - be clipped. "Interim directions are necessary as persons non compliant do not get benefit of an extended tenure". The CoA has also indicated that the elections can be held before the end of this month.

The matter is pending, with the court postponing it twice since the last hearing in October 2017. The grounds on which COA was citing their removal was the expiry of their three-year tenure as per BCCI constitution. Reacting to this, one BCCI office-bearer, on conditions of anonymity, said, "Basically, the CoA is saying that we are unable to get the elections done as per the Lodha reforms, therefore, you order it. They alleged he impeded implementation of reforms and implied that he had "washed his hands off" from ensuring state associations' compliance". The Ranji Trophy cricketers, as per the calculation made, would be getting much more than Rs 35,000 per days in the days to come. What was the rush?

The committee also suggested the removal of Rajeev Shukla, the IPL Governing Council Chairman, on the basis of having overstayed his tenure.

While the CoA has revised the match-fee structure for domestic cricketers, some of the other personnel who are responsible for the smooth functioning of domestic crickete are kept waiting for a revision in remuneration.

This non-compliance is about the historic reforms recommended by the Lodha Committee in its report submitted with the Supreme Court and which many BCCI officials are resisting.

As per CoA, the tenures of all committees including finance committees, have expired. Shukla was elected on November 9, 2015. The tenure of IPL governing council was extended till September 20, 2017. Since the AGM has not been held for two years, the accounts are not ratified and the amount is not disbursed for the last two seasons. The CoA has asked the court to either appoint an electoral officer or authorise it to appoint one to oversee the elections and the eligibility of the administrators contesting various positions, as well the eligibility of members who will cast votes.
