No disruption of matches, Lodha panel wants BCCI's state units to give assurances

Supreme Court-appointed Committee instructed BCCI CEO Rahul Johri to get written assurances from all state units hosting matches.

The Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee on Wednesday instructed BCCI CEO Rahul Johri to get written assurances from all state units hosting matches that cricket in no way will be affected.

The step was taken at a meeting of the three member committee of former Chief Justice of India RM Lodha, former Justices Ashok Bhan and RV Raveendran in New Delhi on Wednesday.

The report stated that the decision was taken as disqualified officials of BCCI were allegedly trying to devise strategy of disrupting matches and create problems for the new body to implement reforms.

Lalit Modi’s son eligible to run for RCA presidency, claims official

Rajasthan Cricket Association’s deputy vice-president Mahmood Abdi on Wednesday said that Lalit Modi’s son, Ruchir, was eligible to contest for the post of president, but it does not necessarily mean that he is set to take the position.

“Yes, he is heading a district association and is eligible to contest for the post of president but it doesn’t mean that he can suddenly take over the reins at RCA. A democratic process will be followed and the 33 voting members will decide on the new set of office-bearers,” Abdi told PTI.

In its meeting on Wednesday, the Lodha panel discussed the RCA issue as well as the stad-off in the Hyderabad Cricket Association, but decided to not intervene in both matter as the cases were still sub-judice.

Both bodies are waiting to hold elections, but have been told to implement a new constitution.

At the end of the month, every salaried professional experiences a wide range of feelings. First, there’s extreme possessiveness - after spending several days trying to live off whatever little is left from paying bills and all those shopping binges, you’re understandably cranky and unwilling to part with the cash you have.

And then payday dawns and the world gets to behold an interesting phenomenon - your payday-wala smile. It is instantly recognizable as something different and special - it stretches across your face, from ear to ear and is mirrored on the faces of your colleagues. Soon the excitement wears off and you are at complete peace. You have worked hard, you’ve earned your keep, you are in Zen mode.
