The Committee of Administrators running the Board of Control for Cricket in India following the advice of Amicus Curiae PS Narasimha has announced the schedule for the board elections and affiliated State associations.
The process will lead to the end of an ad hoc body of officiating President, Secretary and Treasurer and Supreme Court-appointed CoA managing the affairs of the richest cricket board in the world. The present administrative structure had caused more disputes in the board’s operations than ensuring the smooth functioning of the BCCI.
Under the directions of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, the learned Amicus Curiae Shri PS Narasimha held extensive mediation meetings with various State associations of the BCCI and the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA). Pursuant to these meetings, most State associations have agreed to implement the directions of the Hon’ble Supreme Court and become compliant to the reforms, BCCI has stated in a Press release.
Amicus Curiae Narasimha had advised the CoA that the time is now right to call for elections in the state associations and the BCCI.
The BCC is released the detailed schedule with Timelines and Proposed Actions.
