The Comptroller and Auditor General of India, which is set to have a significant role in the administration of cash-rich cricket bodies in the wake of the Lodha Committee recommendations, is gearing up to nominate its representatives to the BCCI and State associations.
“The CAG is yet to receive a formal communication from the Lodha Committee, or the Supreme Court. We are awaiting that to begin the process,” said a senior CAG source.
As per the recommendations, the CAG will have a nominee in the Apex Council that would oversee the administration of cricket in India. CAG would also have a nominee on the IPL Governing Council. Besides, the CAG nominees are also expected to find a place in the State bodies.
For the National-level Apex Council, an officer of the rank of Deputy CAG or a retired senior official of that rank could be nominated. At the State-level, officials junior to that rank could be considered.
