BCCI’s new constitution ousts Mumbai Cricket Association as full member
- Mumbai, 41-time Ranji Trophy champions, will no longer be considered a Full Member association in accordance with the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) new constitution.
- The Committee of Administrators (CoA), appointed by the Supreme Court to carry out the reforms suggested by the Justice Lodha Committee, finalised the new constitution.
- The new constitution stipulates that only 30 associations will function as controlling bodies for domestic cricket in their respective states.
- These 30 bodies will be Full Members and receive voting rights. This was implemented to follow the one-state-one-vote rule, which is a Lodha Panel recommendation.
- Administrators should only serve nine-year terms, some suggested the possibility of serving 18 years in cricket administration — nine years in state associations and nine years in BCCI.
