Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly was today named in the BCCI’s four-member working group formed to study the Justice R M Lodha committee’s order and give recommendations within six weeks. The committee will be chaired by IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla and will have BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur and Treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhary as the other members. BCCI’s legal adviser U N Banerjee will assist the panel. Announcing the names of the panel members, Shukla said the panel will study the implications of the Justice Lodha Committee report and draw up a roadmap for IPL 9, which will have a minimum of eight teams. “The committee will have six weeks’ time to study the Lodha committee report and will give its recommendations after talking to all the stakeholders,” said Shukla. “The committee will also consult the legal experts before coming up with recommendations since we do not want any legal complications later on,” Shukla added. The decision to form a working group was taken at the crucial IPL Governing Council meeting in Mumbai yesterday where members discussed the Lodha Committee’s order, suspending Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals for two years in the IPL. Shukla said that Ganguly, who is also a member of the IPL Governing Council, has been included in the group as a representative of players.
The IPL Chairman clarified that the BCCI will implement the Lodha Committee verdict in toto and the panel’s job is only to find the way forward so that preparations for IPL 9 can begin. “We still have some time for IPL 9, so we should not take any hasty decision. We will follow the procedure and come to a consensus on all the matters relating to IPL,” Shukla said.
