BCCI chief says he wants to study SC order (Lead: Correcting headline)
New Delhi, Oct 21 (IANS) BCCI President Anurag Thakur on Friday said he will read the Supreme Court ruling allowing the Lodha Committee to appoint an auditor to study the Indian cricket board's finances before commenting on it.
The Supreme Court said the Justice Lodha Committee will appoint an independent auditor to scrutinise the finances of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), including contracts involving media rights.
"What impact it will have on cricket, we cannot comment before going through the order. Once we get the copy of the judgement, we shall respond. There are difficulties which have been placed in front of the court," Thakur told media persons here.
"I have full faith in the judiciary. It is the state associations who have to implement the Lodha recommendations. Once they get the order, we will have a discussion with them and ask them to implement," he added.
A bench headed by Chief Justice T.S. Thakur said the BCCI will not disburse any funds to its state affiliates until they undertake to abide with the directions of the court and the recommendations of the Committee.
