Sourav Ganguly, a member of Cricket Advisory Committee and President of Bengal Cricket Association in a recent communication to BCCI has put down the failure of implementing the Lodha Committee recommendations due to lack of time. 

He has been backed up by Saurashtra CA boss Madhukar Worah have written to the BCCI about some practical difficulties in amending the constitution of state associations and incorporate all Lodha-recommended reforms.

Ganguly in his recent letter to BCCI wrote  "I beg to state that at the SGM held at Cricket Association of Bengal few months back, it was agreed by the members that in line with BCCI decision, affidavits will be filed in court addressing the honourable Supreme Court about difficulties in implementation of the order at state and BCCI level."

"The members at the Special General Meeting had taken a decision and it would take another SGM to address the issues mailed by you to the respective associations," Ganguly further wrote. 

"We received your mail last week and there was no time to call another SGM to update the members of the new issues and then take a decision on it," he added. 

Worah, on his part, wrote: "At this stage, Hon'ble Supreme Court is set to hear the counsels appearing for the parties to streamline the proposed document.Therefore, at this stage the decision on the amendments to recommendations lies with Supreme Court and the same shall be debated before Hon'ble Supreme Court".

"Therefore at this stage, it is not really clear what is intended to be achieved by you in the exercise being conducted without the force of rules and regulations.We believe, concerned member association/s will communicate and represent to the Hon'ble Supreme Court about difficulty or impracticability in the subject matter through a proper procedure," the Saurashtra Cricket Joint Secretary concluded.
