After Nagaland horrific performance in women’s u-19 game, former Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) President Anurag Thakur raised that not all Lodha Reforms were appropriate.

Notably, Nagaland was bowled out for just two runs including a wide by Kerala in a BCCI’s u-19 Women’s One-Day Super League match, with as many as nine batswomen getting out for a duck.


The Supreme Court appointed Lodha Committee had recommended one state one vote for BCCI, which resulted in the most successful Ranji team Mumbai losing its voting right, while all the north-eastern states gained the voting power.

Anurag, who also lost his President post due to the reforms, took to Twitter to slam the Lodha Committee reforms in two tweets. In the first tweet, he provided the statistics of 136 wide ball which were bowled in a match between Nagaland and Manipur in Dhanbad earlier this year. In the second tweet he wrote, “Giving full voting rights to each state w/out structured development of cricketing standards will harm the game. Cricket in northeast needs nurturing not humiliation like this. #LodhaReforms @BCCI.”

Mumbai is now an associate member of BCCI. The Mumbai Cricket Association representatives can attend General Body meetings but are not eligible to vote.Baroda and Saurashtra – the two teams from its mother state Gujarat are also now associate members and will take turns to “rotate annually” to vote.
