The Committee of Administrators, led by ex-CAG Vinod Rai, has filed the fourth status report that will be presented on July 14 to the Supreme Court. In the report, the committee has heavily criticized the members of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) for not complying with the order of the Supreme Court bench.
The status report states that while disqualified individuals have demitted office in accordance with the court’s order, they continue to remain associated with state cricket units and attend Special General Meetings, thereby indirectly influencing the functioning of the various cricket boards.

The statement is a direct reference to former BCCI and Tamil Nadu Cricket Association president N Srinivasan representing the Perambalur District Cricket Association at the SGM held on June 26. The report states that the reforms stipulated by the Supreme Court were being stalled by such disqualified members.
In a further development, the BCCI released a statement challenging the CoA report, claiming that the report only puts forward personal observations.
