Diana Edulji, one of the members of the committee appointed by the court to run the BCCI, has vowed to bring about a change in the board by putting the things in order, to bring the glorious days of BCCI back,
“The first step we have to take is to get the house in order. Let’s hope we can bring justice and bring BCCI back to its glorious days. Until we get the house in order, BCCI elections are done and everything (with) the state associations. Until the orders of the Supreme Court are implemented then only we will know,”.
The four-member panel will be headed by Vinod Rai, the former CAG of India. Ramachandran Guha, a noted historian and Vikram Limaye, the Managing Director of IDFC are the other two members of the panel.
Edulji, who is the only cricketer in the four-member committee, played 20 Tests and 34 one-day internationals for India between 1976 and 1993.
The court has appointed the four-member committee to see the working of BCCI after sacking of former BCCI President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke on January 2. BCCI failed to implement the recommendation of Lodha panel in toto, which saw these two being sacked by the Supreme Court of India. Following that, many state administrators, who were ineligible to resume the office, to fall in line with the Lodha recommendations.
The administrative committee, earlier today, had a meeting in Mumbai.
