Breaking News : SC allows BCCI to release funds for opening India-England Test
Advertisement
#1
In what comes as a relief for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the Supreme Court has directed the Indian cricket board to disburse a sum of Rs 58.66 Lakhs for hosting the first India-England Test, which begins on Wednesday (November 9) in Rajkot.
The Supreme Court also approved the release of funds for the remaining games and the exact sum for the same will be determined at a later stage. However, the funds will not be given directly to the state associations and will instead be given to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), umpires, insurance companies and concerned vendors.
This development comes in the wake of BCCI appealing to the Supreme Court to approve disbursal of funds for payment of bills for the England team. Kapil Sibal, the BCCI lawyer, pleaded to the top court asking them to approve the release of funds, failing which there would be a possibility of cancellation of the opening Test.
"There is a problem in holding the Test match commencing from tomorrow. We cannot release funds. There is an order of the Supreme Court asking state cricket associations to file undertakings that they will comply with the Lodha panel recommendations. This has not been done so far," Sibal told the court on Tuesday (November 8).
The BCCI had earlier written to the ECB, requesting them to bear the expenses of their team's 'travel, hotel accommodation and other arrangements'. In a letter addressed to Phil Neal, the England cricket team manager, BCCI secretary Ajay Shirke explained the board's legal complications and their inability to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) due to lack of directives from the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha Committee.
Gopal Sankaranarayanan, the secretary of the Lodha committee, said the BCCI and the state associations have not given any undertakings that they will comply with the recommendations as per the Supreme Court order on October 21. The apex court had frozen the disbursal of funds from the Indian board to the state associations till they agree to implement the Lodha panel's recommendations in toto.
The Lodha panel had stated, that BCCI will need to furnish 'relevant details' with respect to implementation of the Lodha reforms for them to be able to make any payments.
