BCCI president Shashank Manohar had made a fervent appeal to the Board's members ahead of its 86th AGM to lend their support to a few decisions which, according to him, were needed to protect the autonomy of the Board during its difficult times. 

"My second term as the President is more challenging as the Board is passing through turbulent times. It is necessary for all the members to support certain decisions which are required to be taken to protect the interest of the Board in maintaining its autonomy," Manohar wrote in its annual report. 

He also referred to the difficult times the BCCI was passing through, apparently referring to the 2013 IPL spot-fix scandal that resulted in the Supreme Court forming the Justice Mudgal panel to probe it followed by the Justice Lodha panel which decided on quantum of punishment to those found guilty by the former panel. 

"The BCCI needs to improve its efficiency and transparency in governance and a great deal of accountability is required from the members as to how the BCCI funds are used," he wrote. 

He has mentioned that as a first step in this cleaning up operation to signal more transparency the Board "has started sharing all information regarding rules and regulations on the BCCI website."
