App More Related NewsIf you listen very carefully you just might be able to hear the sound of hundreds of BCCI and state cricket association officials whimpering all over the country That’s because the Justice Lodha Committee report takes a sledgehammer to the cricket board’s formerly impregnable fortress and would replace it with one of the most progressive and equitable sports governing bodies in the world The Committee has rightly paid no heed to history precedent or person in its recommendations saying so in remarkably direct terms Justice RM Lodha reading out the report with BCCI reforms PTI “At a time when the nation’s highest court has been compelled to find that the game has fallen into disrepute only extraordinary steps will bring it back from this chasm We are conscious that some of our proposals may evoke varied responses but the collective conscience of this Committee is clear that tough measures are called for to restore Indian cricket to its pinnacle of glory" “Individual interest will have to be sacrificed for the sake of the institution and no exigency of convenience or convention shall stand in the way of a whole scale structural overhaul” The result is a set of proposals that hit all the right notes and leave no aspect of Indian cricket untouched The Committee hasn’t simply looked at the way the board functions it has looked at the way the sport is governed and played in the country and decided audaciously but rightly that it all had to be shook up If I said I saw this day coming I’d be lying The Committee has of course proposed a completely new governing structure for BCCI in order to create space for professional management and to prevent any one individual from dominating the board as former president N Srinivasan did Separating the cricket functions from administrative functions and the IPL from everything else are further common sense proposals that would make BCCI officials look silly if they were to oppose them Among the more cheer-worthy proposals is the creation of a player’s association something Indian cricket has desperately needed to bring balance to the relationship between administrators and players The BCCI has overtly and covertly prevented such an association from rising in the past thereby making it difficult for the players to speak with one voice Not only would an association allow the players to bargain collectively in order to secure the best commercial terms for the players it would also get to nominate members to the Apex Council including one female member giving the players representation in BCCI decisions This had been a huge glaring hole in the way the board has operated so far The BCCI is also a sexist organistion in many respects – it is run entirely by men – and having a woman on the Apex Council would be a historic first step to changing that (though much much more would need to be done to completely transform it of course) There are two other heavy-hitting recommendations that warrant mentioning The first is that since the matter is currently sub judice before the Madras High Court the Committee has recommended “that the legislature must seriously consider bringing BCCI within the purview of the RTI Act” While this would have obvious benefits unfortunately shielding themselves from the glare of the RTI Act has been a priority for BCCI officials a number of whom are politicians with considerable influence in the corridors of power Getting them to vote against their own self-interest is extremely unlikely The other is the clause that would prevent a minister or government servant from becoming a BCCI office bearer Too often political power has often been a crucial determinant in cricket body elections and patronage a key bargaining chip Cricket has also often been used as a platform for politicians to gain a national profile or burnish one For example in the Great Tamasha Sharad Pawar tells author James Astill that “I take half an hour a day on telephone or internet for ICC work That’s easy enough And when I was BCCI president one full day in a month mostly on telephone giving instructions” Now imagine Sepp Blatter (ignoring for the moment his ban) saying he needed just 30 minutes a day to run FIFA or Thomas Bach saying that about the IOC and you get the idea Removing ministers and government servants from the game would allow others with possibly more genuine interest the will to improve the game and the capability to do so to be part of the system Now the Lodha Committee recommendations are not binding on the BCCI That decision falls to the Supreme Court My hope is they will say yes To everything And then the real celebrating can begin The Maharashtra Shops and Establishment Act will be applied across the state.

Ranchi: He believes that his game thrives well in pressure situations and Hardik Pandya does not have to look too far as he has both Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli for "inspiration" File image

paid glowing tributes to his seniors on the eve of their fourth ODI against New Zealand in Ranchi A 151-run match-winning partnership between Dhoni (80) and Kohli (154 not out) set up their seven-wicket win in Mohali as India will look to seal the issue in the five-match rubber at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association Stadium Complex here tomorrow Dhoni looks to have regained his destructive form after promoting him to number four and Pandya said it’s exciting time for Team India "It shows positive intent I enjoyed his (Dhoni) batting As batsman whatever number I bat at we should play according to situation It’s a job for everyone It gives us confidence for someone who bats lower down the order It’s pretty good" While he is enjoying Dhoni’s approach to batsmanship after the skipper promoted himself up the order the young all-rounder is game about batting at any No which the team management wants him to "I’m pretty ready for everything whatever overs I get" Pandya

putting the same effort but I’ve worked a bit more on my fitness I’m stronger now" Pandya nearly pulled off a thrilling chase but went out for 36 from 32 balls after being done in by Trent Boult in angled short delivery in the second ODI in Delhi "Well I’ve played that shot before it was just not my day I will try not repeat that and learn from mistakes and experience certainly plays a key role" Asked whether the team was affected by over dependency on Kohli he said: "When Virat is in full flow it boosts the confidence He is a high impact player so obviously it creates pressure when he gets out cheaply and the team has to start building (the innings) again Generally he scores for the team But as a cricketer we are ready for any situation" Pandya further hailed Kedar Jadhav for giving important breakthroughs with his part-time off-spin "It helps a lot coming as sixth bowler he’s certainly making a difference Winning is important but we are taking match by match and not thinking too

build 500 such PFTs in the three years “Of the total revenue of the Indian Railways 68 per cent comes from freight Such projects will help increase the revenue and improve the financial condition of the Railways” said Sinha Wednesday while talking to mediapersons after inaugurating a PFT at Sachana located about 50 km from Ahmedabad “The Indian Railways have so far set up 27 PFTs and in the next three years we will be building 500 such terminals on PPP (public-private-partnership) mode This will help push social and economic growth in the country” the minister said The PFT at Sachana has been built by Continental Warehousing Corporation (NhavaSeva) Ltd and is expected to serve industries located in a 100-150 km radius including those in Sanand Kadi and nearby industrial zones Officials of CWCNSL refused to divulge the investment made in setting up the project “This terminal will cut transportation costs for industries located in a 100-150 km radius by 10 per cent” the minister added
