SC freezes BCCI accounts

The Supreme Court on Friday froze all financial transactions between BCCI and State associations by ordering the BCCI to not give any financial help the State units until they implement Lodha committee recommendations.

The apex court also directed BCCI chief Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke to give undertaking on affidavit before Lodha panel and in apex court by December 3, stating how much time they would need to implement the reforms. It also directed the Lodha panel to ask the auditors to scrutinise the high-value contracts given by the cricket board. Apart from that, the Supreme Court directed the panel to send a copy of the court’s order to ICC chairman Shashank Manohar. The body also recommended to appoint an independent audit firm to evaluate all the transactions and financial details of the board.
