Kolkata, May 26 IANS) Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) would wait for the Supreme Court's hearing on July 5 on implementing the Lodha Committee's recommendations, its president and former India captain Sourav Ganguly said here on Saturday.
"We will wait for Supreme Court's final order on July 5," Ganguly told reporters after a Special General Meeting (SGM) here.
The Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) have now written to all state associations, asking them to act even before the hearing.
"It's mentioned in the letter that you cannot make state constitution till the formation of BCCI's constitution. We will wait for the hearing," Ganguly added.
According to sources, the trustee board chairman Gautam Dasgputa has voiced his displeasure at COA chief Vinod Rai continuing in office despite turning 70.
Citing example of former BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah's sarcastic birthday wish to Rai, the official said: "We must also send him a thank you note."
The BCCI state units have rejected almost all contentious issues that are critical to BCCI's reforms as some members have said that it appears unreasonable and unconstitutional to disqualify any person above 70, and also have strongly rejected the one-state, one-vote and cooling off period.
