India court orders BCCI to implement clean-up panel's views
NEW DELHI (AP) India's Supreme Court has told the Board of Control for Cricket in India to withhold funding from state cricket bodies until they implement recommendations of a court-appointed committee to clean up the administration of the sport.
A three-man committee headed by Justin Rajendra Lodha was formed in the wake of a spot-fixing scam and alleged conflicts of interest.
The court also ordered the BCCI to appoint an independent auditor to scrutinize its accounts and fix financial limits for contracts. All high-value contracts would have to be cleared by auditors, the court ruled.
BCCI office bearers have also been ordered to file compliance reports to the Supreme Court within two weeks.
