Supreme court's warning to BCCI is in the interest of cricket. They appointed lodha committee to look after the irregularities in BCCI and come up with the suggestions to clean up the BCCI from scams and cricket in india too. For good cricket, a country requires a good control board, subsequently board requires good officials to run the board.
By making a committee to study the loop holes in the BCCI , Supreme court is going to ensure greater transparency, accountability and fair election of BCCI officials. Lodha committee has submitted its report and suggested a good steps to clean the BCCI. BCCI is meant for cricket in India, so technically good retired cricketers are the best contender for the BCCI key posts.
Thus: Supreme court has just done his job to ensure fair and transparent functioning of BCCI. Lodha committee suggestions ensures fair election, greater accountability, competent people to run BCCI and decreasing political interference in the BCCI
Warning should remain a warning because if implemented, It will stop the matches that are being played between various domestic cricket teams.
This will reduce the trustworthiness of BCCI in the minds of players and they may not give their best performance in the match and as one performance in domestic sometimes makes a player to play for the nation which means that it may prevent a talented player from playing for the country.
I don't think so that warning will affect the domestic players, as ideally the players should think to give their performance at the opportunities available. The players should not be indulge in negative thinking and anticipation over BCCI. They should understand that clean BCCI is a very good thing for their future too. And above all country law is supreme first.
And what about the ongoing Cricket matches, would that be a loss to the Association and the exchequer? Can't Supreme Court just impose a fine instead of cancelling the matches?
As far as law is concerned, scam for 100 rupee is also a crime and scam for 100 crores is also a crime.So If BCCI is proven guilty then they have to be booked under the law. We cannot dilute the process of supreme court. And for sake of BCCI's loss supreme court will not review its decision.So taking soft stand merely for the losses of BCCI will put a question mark on status of supreme court as the custodian of the constitution.
Supreme Court order should not be seen in the narrow sense i.e in short term rather it has to be seen with the long term benefits. In the long term, SC order will benefit entire cricket game, players, fans and every one. As the BCCI reforms bring transparency, accountability in the BCCI. It will give each state a right to participate in the Ranji Trophy and give all states equal rights irrespective of whether it is big or small. It will surpass the domination of elite people in BCCI and in team selection and management. Instead of BCCI making false appeals to SC it should rather follow the orders of SC and implement them accordingly.
There is no reservation in the fact that the apex court has taken a noble initiative of reforming the world's richest cricket association which has been in the news in the past for some wrong reasons like spot fixing, IPL scam, betting etc.however, the BCCI defiant attitude and the SC adamant position ,currently, to implement the Lodha committee recommendation could have ripple effect on the cricket in general, and the state players in particular,who have done immense hard work to get into the state team, and now striving further to get an opportunity in the national team, and whose families'hope eyed on their career in the cricket.further,this fallout could tarnish the image of Indian cricket in the international platform. cricket has emerged as saviour for India to improve its image in sports talent in international arena,for instance in the Rio olympic she got merely 4 medal,in this backdrop the the SC decision could bring down it further. thus, the only suggestion is that before taking any hasty and egoistic decision, the honorable court should consider this perspective also.
Warning is generally seen as something negative. But examine the warning issued by the Supreme Court to the BCCI and one will understand that its not always negative. The Supreme Court has issued warning to the BCCI to comply with the recommendations of Lodha Committee report after BCCI's top brass has displayed unwillingness to comply through its actions in the form of disbursing Rs. 400 crore to the State associations despite an embargo issued by the Lodha panel and its secretary asked the panel to send him emails personally.
This warning, if becomes a reality may affect the ongoing season of cricket but will go a long way in establishing Transparency and accountability in the game and will make future board members of cricket and other games to bring in the highest level of transparency and accountability in their functioning.
