The BCCI have named Sourav Ganguly in the seven-member committee to identify ‘critical points’ of the Supreme Court judgment on the implementation of RM Lodha Committee recommendations. The panel will be led by IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla and convened by acting-secretary Amitabh Choudhary.

The committee will identify "exceptional and extremely limited areas of difficulty" in the implementation of the Lodha committee reforms. The other members are BCCI Vice-president TC Mathew; Treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry; Nabha Bhattacharjee, the secretary of the Meghalaya Cricket Association and co-convener of North East Cricket Development Committee; and Jay Shah, the joint-secretary of the Gujarat Cricket Association.

With the Supreme Court set to hold its next hearing on July 14, the committee has been asked to convene a meeting soon and submit a written report by July 10. The board's general body will then hold a Special General Meeting to approve the proposals. The issues that the committee will most likely deal with are 'one-state, one-vote' rule, an age cap of 70-years for officials, a cooling-off period of three years after every three-year term, and identifying a fix number of selectors for the senior national team.

The development comes a day after the BCCI’s Special General Meeting in Mumbai, where it was decided that a committee would be formed with a view to completing the implementation process of the Lodha recommendations. Amitabh Choudhary also suggested that the committee will take stock of the implementation of the recommendations, focussing chiefly on “exceptional and extremely limited areas of difficulty”.

"The committee will go into each and every action point necessitated by the principal judgment and then only those exceptional and extremely limited areas of difficulty would bring it to the notice of the CoA, which will thereafter decide the course of action," Choudhary had said after the SGM.

The report, though, will first be sent to CK Khanna, the BCCI’s acting president, before presenting to the General Body.
