MUMBAI: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is all set to head to the Supreme Court on Tuesday to seek directions on a flurry of issues, the most important of which is the disbursal of funds required for conducting the India-England series starting Wednesday. The BCCI said that non-dispersal will result in cancellation of the first Test at Rajkot.
The Supreme Court bench says it will consult the Chief Justice of India on the matter. In response, the Lodha panel has opposed BCCI submission, saying that the cricket body is in contempt by not obeying apex court directions.
Senior counsel for the BCCI, Kapil Sibal, and his team gathered in New Delhi on Tuesday morning to draft the petition after the Board took a call on Monday night to seek the Apex Court’s guidance on the way forward.
