An hour long meeting and IPL Chairman Rajiv Shukla stepped out to speak to the media, and he might as well have not.
The IPL’s Governing Council- called for an emergency meeting after the Lodha Committee report last week- made no concrete decisions, instead chose to set up yet another committee that will decide the way forward.
The members of the said working committee will be chosen by Shukla by Monday and will now get six more weeks to study the Lodha Committee report in full and give their recommendation to the board.
The IPL GC hence authorised the Chairman, Shri Rajeev Shukla, to constitute a working group which will study this verdict, in consultation with all our key advisors and explore all the possible measures to be adopted, with an objective to protect the interests of all the stakeholders involved.
– BCCI Statement
In the little that Rajiv Shukla did say to the media, he simply reiterated the fact that the BCCI will indeed be adhering to the Lodha Committee verdict in totality.
We took everyone’s inputs in the meeting and even spoke to our legal experts. The first decision we made was that we will respect the Lodha Committee report and implement it in toto.
