Committee of Administrators (CoA) has directed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) should hold a fresh election within three months.
Meanwhile, this direction comes just after the introduction of a new constitution for the board. CoA chief Vinod Rai confirmed the news while speaking to the media in Delhi on Monday. richest cricket board
Rai also added they would hand over the powers as soon as the new officials take their office. Rai said that the CoA wouldn’t overstep the mandate given to them by the Supreme Court by even a day.
“We are looking at elections in about 90 days. We have given the date as September 20. There is no cause for any ambiguity,” Vinod Rai said. “The COA will leave the moment the new body takes over. There is a specific mandate that has been given to the CoA, rest assured we will not overstep it by a day,” Rai added.
While the BCCI will follow the verdict of the Supreme Court, there are some confusions over how its member bodies would operate. Reports suggest that some state associations are still objecting to some reforms approved by the Supreme Court. how many ways can a batsman lose his wickets
Vinod Rai, however, admitted that there will be no confusion regarding this. He stated that the associations ‘should mirror the BCCI constitution’.
“As far as the BCCI is concerned, the new constitution has come into effect and there are no two ways about it. The Supreme Court order is very clear. It says the state association should mirror the BCCI constitution. So whether it is a committee or a trust, it has to mirror the issues which are in the BCCI constitution,” he said.
“There are some practical difficulties. And some associations have moved to court for clarification. Hence, it will not be appropriate for me to interpret any of the clauses in the constitution since it has been brought before the court,” Rai added.
Meanwhile, the associations have time till September 20 to file a compliance report.
