“Lodha Committe Should Have Been Formed 50 Years Ago” Says Bishan Singh Bedi
Bishan Singh Bedi, the former India spin legend and one of the front-runners for the post of next boss of BCCI, has said that the Lodha recommendations should have come 50 years ago in Indian cricket, to clean the game.
“The reforms in Indian cricket administration should have been put in place 50 years ago. The Supreme Court did not jump in on its own but it brought about some sanity and honesty in cricket administration, therefore, justice Lodha panel was important,” Bedi said at the Jaipur Literature Festival.
“With the Justice Lodha panel, a beginning has been made but some of the very greedy cricket officials in BCCI and in state associations are not willing to part with the kind of authority they have and the perks which came along.”
Bedi also took at the political parties and politicians running the game of cricket in India as he said,
“All the politicians, be it from BJP, Congress or any other party, they become one. They can have all differences in Parliament but when it comes to the cricket, they become one, the silent operators.”
Bishan Singh Bedi is one of the prominent personalities in Indian cricket who has always been known to speak his mind. He is also one of the prospects for the post of next boss of BCCI along with Farokh Engineer but if elected to the post, then he may found himself in a bit of trouble. As per the Lodha recommendations, an administrator in the apex board could be maximum of 70 years and Bedi has already crossed the age.
The Supreme court of India will announce the next boss of BCCI on January 24 and then it the mystery looming over this will be unveiled.
