The court looms over BCCI

In a surprising move for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and taking its top leadership to task, the Supreme Court removed the president, Anurag Thakur, and the secretary, Ajay Shirke, from their respective positions. This will lay out the way for improving the status of administration of Indian cricket s governing body and proper implementation of Justice Lodha Committee.

The interim president of the BCCI will be the senior-most eligible vice-president. As per the Lodha Committee s eligibility criteria, any BCCI and State associations  official will be eligible. After the release the names of the committee of administrators by Supreme Court on January 19, there will be an officially commencement of transition to the court-appointed administration era.

The leadership of Mr. Thakur and Mr. Shirke was declared ineffectual  on the basis of their inability to force the State associations to comply and obey with the Supreme Court s orders.  Mr. Thakur may also face charges of contempt for intentionally obstructing the implementation of the court s orders and prosecution for perjury for lying under oath and allegedly falsifying the BCCI s minutes from August 22.

Used to being left to its own devices, the cricket administration body had perhaps not contemplated the extent to which the court would go. Neither did it attempt to grasp the umpteen opportunities presented to it to stem the rot in the governance of cricket body that began after Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scandal began in 2013.

BCCI just seemed to have lost perspective and context.
