NEW DELHI:The Supreme Court on Friday said the Justice Lodha Committee will appoint an independent auditor to scrutinise the finances of the BCCI, including contracts involving media rights.
A bench headed by Chief Justice T.S Thakur said the Board of Control for Cricket in India will not disburse any funds to its state affiliates until they undertake to abide with the directions of the Court and the recommendations of the Committee.
The court said both BCCI President Anurag Thakur and Secretary Ajay Shirke should file an affidavit committing to abide by it and the panel's recommendations.
The order also said Lodha panel's secretary would send the copy of the order to International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman Shashank Manohar.
