The BCCI special general body meeting (SGM) has authorised president Shashank Manohar and secretary Anurag Thakur to file an affidavit in response to the recommendations by Supreme Court-appointed Justice R.M. Lodha’s panel about the administrative overhaul of Indian cricket.
The SGM also elevated Chhattisgarh State Cricket Sangh (CSCS) to the status of a full member. It means that Chhattisgarh will be added as the 28th team in the Ranji Trophy from next season.
The SGM allowed controversial Bihar Cricket Association (BCA) to be allowed to participate in the meeting. Mrityunjay Tiwary, BCA secretary, attended the meeting. It was after three years that BCA, ridden with infighting, was allowed to attend a BCCI meeting.
