Sourav Ganguly among four in BCCI panel to study Lodha Committee ruling

It seems that former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly is a more busy man now than what he was during his playing days. Donning multiple roles of commentating, TV anchoring, managing his business, fulfilling the roles with Board of Cricket Control for India’s (BCCI) advisory committee and Cricket Association of Bengal’s (CAB) joint-secretary among many others — Ganguly now has been named in BCCI’s four-member working group formed to study the Justice RM Lodha committee’s order.

The committee that will be chaired by Indian Premier League (IPL) Chairman Rajeev Shukla, will have BCCI Secretary Anurag Thakur and Treasurer Aniruddh Chaudhary as the other members, while the board’s legal advisor UN Banerjee will also assist the panel. The panel has been given six weeks time to study the report and chalk out a roadmap for the ninth edition of the league. (Related content: CSK: The fall of cricket’s Manchester United)

In a report from PTI, Shukla was quoted as saying, “The committee will have six weeks’ time to study the Lodha committee report and will give its recommendations after talking to all the stakeholders. The committee will also consult the legal experts before coming up with recommendations since we do not want any legal complications later on.

Ganguly, who is a member of the IPL governing council, has been included as a representative of the players. As the team officials were involved in betting, the Lodha Panel has suspended the franchises Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) for two years with immediate effect.
