The Committee of Administrators has completed its work on the draft constitution of the BCCI, incorporating the Lodha panel recommendations, and will be submitting it to the Supreme Court on September 11. The primary recommendations by the Lodha panel pertaining to good governance consists of One State One Vote, age cap of 70 years, cooling off period after every three years in office and bars on ministers or bureaucrats from being BCCI officials.

The CoA along with BCCI CEO Rahul Johri met in the capital on Friday where they met representatives of the North East as well as discussed the new constitution. “We have completed our work and we will definitely submit the draft constitution in the Supreme Court much before the next scheduled hearing on September 19. There will not be a sixth status report,” CoA chief Vinod Rai told reporters after the meeting.

However, a senior BCCI official on condition of anonymity said that the report would be submitted to SC by Monday. When Rai was asked about the status of units like Kolkata’s National Cricket Club and Mumbai’s Cricket Club of India, which are supposed to lose full membership plus voting rights if one adheres to Lodha Reforms, Rai said: “That will be upto the Supreme Court to decide on how much cricket they play.”
