BCCI to Supreme Court: Release funds for Rajkot Test or will have to cancel it

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has moved the Supreme Court, seeking funds for Wednesday's Test match between India and England to be played in Rajkot.

Non-disbursal of money would result in the cancellation of the first Test, the cricket body, which is in a deadlock with the court-appointed Lodha panel that has called for an overhaul of the way the game is administered in the country, told the court on Tuesday.

It should be mentioned here that the court has stopped the BCCI from releasing funds to state associations till they accept the Lodha Committee reforms. The Saurashtra cricket association is the host for the Rajkot game.

The Lodha panel opposed the BCCI submission, saying the board was in contempt, as it had failed to obey the court's directions.

Now, Chief Justice of India TS Thakur would decide if the case would be heard on Tuesday itself.

The BCCI, on November 3, missed a Supreme Court deadline on accepting the Lodha panel reforms.

On October 21, the court had directed the BCCI president to submit an "unqualified undertaking", saying the board was accepting the reforms in totality.
