BCCI set to adopt reforms
The BCCI will be expected to adopt some key measures in its Special General Meeting (SGM) on Wednesday.

The meeting would not be attended by former administrators N Srinivasan and Niranjan Shah after the Supreme Court put a restrain on them stating it would be attended only by qualified office-bearers of the State cricket associations.

The members would be discussing the report of the meetings of the Special Committee of the BCCI held on the July 1 and July 8, for implementation of the Honourable Supreme Court order date July 18, 2016.

The agenda of the meeting includes formal adoption of the new Memorandum of Association and Rules and Regulations for the BCCI. The Lodha panel had been categorical in stating the constitution of the Board should be binding on the affiliated units because of the ambiguity regarding membership of some of the State associations besides the manner of their functioning. Several State association have been dominated by a powerful few for decades.

Also included in the agenda is formal adoption of the new BCCI conflict of interest rules besides the appointment of Ombdusman and formal adoption of new fund disimbersement policy, alluding to the lengthy Deloitte Report which hasn't gone well with several members.

Some of the board member were reportedly happy with the Supreme Court ruling and willing to reconsider the ruling on 'One-State-One-Vote' and cricket issues like reverting to a five-member National selection committee.

It is also learnt that the Committee of Administrators (CoA) is delighted with the decision of the Supreme Court to bar Srinivasan and Shah from the SGM. In its status report, it had clearly stated how the two disqualified officials had disrupted in the previous SGM.

The CoA is convinced that the SGM on Wednesday should set the ball rolling for the BCCI's Annual General Meeting in September and majority implementation of Lodha reforms.
