BCCI's new constitution: North East, Bihar, Uttarakhand in; Mumbai out

Indian cricket's one-time power centre Mumbai has lost its permanent voting status as per the new constitution of the Indian cricket board finalised by the Committee of Administrators (CoA) appointed by the Supreme Court of India.

The COA has uploaded the new Memorandum of Associations (MoA) and Rules & Regulations of BCCI which clearly state that there could be one full member from one state. The revised constitution reads on the website, "Each State shall be represented by a state cricket association duly recognized by the BCCI and such associations shall be Full Members".

Accordingly 41-time Ranji champions are now associate member of BCCI along with Baroda and Saurashtra - the two teams from its mother state Gujarat are now associate members and will take turns to "rotate annually" to vote.

So it relegates Mumbai to Associate Membership status, along with other existing members of the BCCI.

The CoA has come to know that the SGM - after being told that the BCCI may have to reduce its share of ICC revenue by $150 million over a period of eight years - agreed to revise its entitlement, after MCA president Sharad Pawar backed Shashank Manohar's view that smaller nations need to be helped to develop cricket. The panel comprising Vinod Rai, Ramchandra Guha, Vikram Limaye and Diana Edulji, however, has uploaded the proposed changed constitution without calling a Special General Meeting (SGM) and obtaining a three-fourths majority in accordance with the Societies Act.

Online ticket seller Fandango said the film is the best advance-selling family movie in the Los Angeles company's 17-year history. Other live action remakes in development at Disney: " Dumbo ", "The Lion King", " Aladdin ", " Mulan " and "Pinocchio".

However, the CoA have chose to bring in an one-state-one-vote rule to facilitate transparency and equality in the country's cricket administration. "We are helpless.We can only request the Supreme Court to consider our case by taking into consideration Mumbai's rich cricketing history and grant us full membership first", said Shetty.

After being given the mandate to enforce the Lodha Committee recommendations (with modifications), the CoA will now approach the Apex Court to find out if it has done the right thing. It has been put in place for that.

The CoA has strictly adhered to the reforms that have been passed by the Supreme Court as they are in charge of implementation. "The states will also have to make changes to their own constitutions".

Some administrators also want clarity on the authority and scope of functioning of the CoA.
