The Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Tuesday said that the much-awaited elections of the BCCI will be held on October 22.
In the meeting attended by all three CoA members - chief Vinod Rai, Diana Edulji and Ravi Thodge - the deadline to hold State elections were set at September 14.
Elections finally taking place in the BCCI, which has suffered from the administrative crisis for more than two years.
“We sincerely believed a democratically run elected body should run cricket in the country,” added the former CAG.
The CoA, which was appointed by the Supreme Court in January 2017 to oversee the sweeping reforms recommended by the Lodha panel, announced the date of the election hereafter due to consultation with the apex court-appointed amicus curiae PS Narasimha.
The Supreme Court had assigned Mr. Narsimha in March to mediate with various State associations which had 80 filed interim appeals.
