The ongoing spat between the Supreme Court of India and Board of Control for Cricket in India has reached to a new level with Supreme Court refusing to review the verdict it passes recently which had put a lot of new regulations on the richest cricket body in the world. Some of the regulations suggested by the apex court barred ministers and businessmen to hold key positions in BCCI as well as setting the maximum age of officials to 70 years.

Supreme Court had passed an order on 18th July 2016 according to the recommendations of the Lodha Committee. The order had suggested a complete revamp of the structure and policies of BCCI. However, the cricket board had overseen the recommendations and challenged it in the court.

Among the other recommendations, Supreme Court had suggested a One State, One Vote policy and lashed out on the officials who held important positions in BCCI for decades. The court had suggested a maximum of 3 terms for an official with each term of not more than 3 years. There was also a cooling off period suggested in between two terms to implement the recommendations completely.

BCCI and the state associations had jointly filed a review petition to the Supreme Court and had requested for the hearing to take place in open. However, the supreme court rejected it with a comment that it had not found any error in the judgement announced on July 18th and added that recommendations should be implemented ASAP.
