BCCI working committee to discus IPL mess on 28 August

The working group formed by the BCCI to propose remedial action and road map for next year's IPL to submit report

Mumbai: The working committee of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will meet in Kolkata on 28 August to discuss, among other things, the report and recommendations of the IPL working group headed by Rajiv Shukla.

“The notice for the working committee meeting to be held in Kolkata on 28 August has been received," said P.V. Shetty, joint secretary of the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) which is one of the permanent members of the BCCI’s working committee.

The IPL working group comprising Shukla, BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur, treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary, former India captain Sourav Ganguly and the BCCI’s legal adviser U.N. Banerjee, was given six weeks’ time on 20 July to study the orders of the Justice R.M. Lodha Committee and give its recommendations and road map for next year’s IPL.

The decision to form a working group was taken at the IPL governing council meeting in Mumbai last month where members discussed the Lodha committee order that suspended Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals for two years from IPL. The committee was constituted by the Supreme Court in January this year to announce the quantum of punishment against Gurunath Meiyappan, the former team principal of CSK, Raj Kundra, co-owner of the Rajasthan Royals, and the two franchisees—India Cements Ltd, owner of CSK, and Jaipur IPL, owner of the Royals.
