Shah asks SC to step in

Niranjan Shah had previously written to the Committee of Administrators questioning why he was not allowed to attend NCA meetings

However, the SC ruled that no state cricket association has the right to uphold elections until the BCCI comes up with a constitution.

A significant fallout of Tuesday's hearing was the SC recognising that the Justice R M Lodha panel's reforms report and the apex court's July 18, 2016 judgment might have erred by adopting a rigid stance on the one-state, one-vote norm as several cricketing bodies, despite their long association with the sport in India, would have lost their say in management of the game at the national level. "Once we clear it, we may ask High Courts to step in and see that the state associations' bring their constitutions in line".

It was on May 24, 2017 that the Committee of Administrators (COA) assured top office-bearers of all cricket associations that it was ready to touch upon the contentious "one-state, one-vote" policy that did not go down well with any of them.

"We are on the principle of inclusivity and not on the principle of exclusivity", the CJI said insisting that Northeastern states can not be denied any voting right merely because they do not produce quality cricketers. A contempt petition had also been filed by the Cricket Association of Bihar against CEO Rahul Johri and acting secretary Amitabh Chaudhary as the CAB secretary Aditya Verma felt that the BCCI didn't include teams from Bihar in the Vijay Hazare Trophy despite the order of the SC.

Meanwhile, Bihar will be playing Ranji Trophy from the upcoming season, but as Bihar state and not under any association.

With the BCCI constitution pending final approval of the court, the bench also asked the Maharashtra Cricket Association to postpone its election scheduled for Wednesday. While the new statute would be binding on BCCI, the court clarified that its order on petitions seeking recall of the 2016 verdict would deal with the validity of the draft constitution.

The court also said that while finalising the BCCI constitution, it may not restrict the number of national selectors to three and impose the eligibility criteria that selectors have to be test players. Additional Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for MCA, said the MCA should be allowed to conduct the elections and frame its constitution in tune with the verdict and the recommendations of the Lodha panel. But this claim was contested by the amicus curiae Gopal Subramanian who claimed that the constitution adopted by the Maharashtra was in complete variance with the Lodha panel recommendations. It had approved the Lodha panel's recommendations such as "one State, one vote"; "one member, one post"; and fixing an age-cap of 70 years on those occupying BCCI posts.
