State bodies seek SC clarification on their status

State cricket associations on Monday approached the Supreme Court seeking clarification on their status.


A bench presided over by Justice Dipak Misra allowed the cricket bodies, represented by senior advocate Kapil Sibal, to file their application.

In a slew of directions, the apex court on January 2 said the office-bearers of BCCI and its affiliated state associations who failed to meet the norms recommended by Justice R M Lodha panel should forthwith demit and cease to hold office.

Appearing for state associations, Sibal said they needed some clarifications about their status after the apex court order.

He said a crucial ICC meeting on revenue sharing was also coming up and some suggestions needed to be given.

Senior advocate Parag Tripathi, appearing for the Committee of Administrators, said state bodies have so far not filed any affidavit to say whether they would comply with the apex court directions.

He said their plea should not be entertained till they filed the affidavit in compliance with the earlier direction of the court.

The apex court had on January 2 sacked BCCI president Anurag Thakur and its secretary Ajay Shirke, saying they had rendered themselves “unfit” by obstructing reforms in the cricket administration.
