'The members do not agree to implement three-four recommendations as they are not practical'

BCCI president Anurag ThakurBCCI President Anurag Thakur said there are few recommendations by the Justice Lodha Committee which the Board members feel are not practical to implement.

"The matter is subjudice and I have full faith in the Indian judicial system. We have called meetings time and again to implement Justice Lodha Committee Recommendations. More than 85 per cent recommendations have been implemented," Thakur told reporters in Jaipur on Wednesday.

"The members do not agree to implement three-four recommendations as they are not practical. To convey this, we sought time but the committee is not giving us time for the last two months," he added.

Thakur further said: "Before the recommendations, we have brought many reforms in the BCCI, which is the best run organisation in the world today. Our teams have performed well in so many tournaments.

"We are the number one team in Tests, number two in T20s and number three in ODIs. Look at the performance of our junior team where they have finals of the Asia Cup. Our women’s team have won the Women's Asia Cup.

"So where are shortcomings? Pressure is being created unnecessarily on us," he added.
