Former Indian Captains Sunil Gavasakar and Kapil Dev showed concern over some of the recommendations made by the Lodha Panel. They feel that some of the recommendations do not make sense.
"I couldn't comprehend that Maharashtra can have one and only vote. By what means can a spot like Mumbai, which has done as such much for cricket, vote simply following three years?" Dev said on Sunday (September 25). "Yes, change is required, however I think the cricketing work ought to be finished by cricketers and authoritative work ought to be finished by chairmen." He said.
At present, the condition of Maharashtra has three affiliations, spoke to by groups Mumbai, Maharashtra and Vidarbha, while Gujarat has the same number of affiliations, spoke to by Saurashtra, Gujarat and Baroda. According to the suggestions of the Lodha Committee, three votes from every state will be lessened to one, with one affiliation speaking to the state on a rotational premise.
"They ought to take a seat and examine what is best for cricket. A portion of the suggestions, I feel, are excessively, however some of them I feel is the need of great importance for the improvement of the diversion. I was so glad when three cricketers picked the national mentor. In any case, let us not remove anything from the BCCI. They have cared for this diversion for right around 60-80 years," he included.
Gavaskar, in the mean time, had reservations with the nine-year residency for directors in the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the state affiliations. According to the Lodha proposals, an executive can hold office thrice for a three-year time frame, with a chilling time of three years in the middle of two terms.
"What is the apex in a director's profession? It is turning into the president. You don't simply turn into the president in three years," the previous opener said. "You are the president of the board since you serve a few terms, for example, VP. When you go to that level, once you have completed that term, you then don't return as the agent of your state affiliation since how are the new thoughts going to come?
"When you have done that I think you ought to say, 'Much thanks. Give us now a chance to have another person speaking to my state affiliation.' That is the sort of thing that will help," Gavaskar finished up.
The BCCI has time till September 30 to correct its standards and controls, with the primary period of changes to be actualized by October 15.
