The names that have been announced by India’s apex court will now take control of the functioning of the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) and will oversee the implementation of Justice (Rtd) Lodha Committee proposals.

BCCI’s Amitabh Chaudhary along with the newly appointed BCCI administrator Vikram Limaye will represent the board at the International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting in first week of February 2017.

Justice Lodha appreciated the selection of the four members and said, “Four names which have been selected are very good, must help in the implementation of our report. CAG nominee will be the member of an apex council, this is not apex council but a committee of administrators, this is an interim arrangement which needs work until reforms suggested by us and accepted by the Supreme Court are put in place.  “
