The IPL Governing Council meet in Mumbai on Sunday, 19 July, ended without a final decision on the fate of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, the two IPL franchises suspended for two years by the Lodha committee. The GC, however, accepted the verdict of the committee, and agreed to form a working group to look into the future course of action for IPL.
Here are the main decisions reached at after the meeting:
- BCCI respects the findings of the Lodha committee, and will abide by their decision.
- A working group , to be headed by IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla, will be constituted to prepare a road map for IPL.
The working group will study in detail the findings of the Lodha Committee, and will send its recommendations on IPL to the Governing Council within six weeks.
The recommendations of the group will be deliberated to the BCCI working committee for further action.
In a statement to reporters after the meet, BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur said the committee will explore all the possible measures to be adopted, and will aim to 'protect the interests of all the stakeholders involved'.
There was, however, no word on the number of members to be included in the working group.
