The Supreme Court on Thursday took two major decisions by appointing Lt. Gen. Ravi Thodge, PVSM, as the third member of the Committee of Administrators (CoA) and former Supreme Court (SC) judge DK Jain as the new Ombudsman of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The decision was made by a two-judge bench of Justice SA Bobde and AM Sapre in the Supreme Court.

Thodge will join the committee which is comprising of CAG Vinod Rai and former cricketer Diana Edulji.

“We are happy that by consent of the parties and the suggestions, the name of retired Justice DK Jain has been agreed to be appointed as the Ombudsman in the BCCI. We accordingly appoint Justice (retired) DK Jain as first Ombudsman in the BCCI,” Bobde said at the hearing on Thursday.

According to Chapter Nine, Article 40 of the new BCCI constitution, all kinds of grievance redressals have to be handled by the Ombudsman. In the absence of this position, the matter of disciplinary action against Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul dragged on for weeks which meant the duo was suspended for five matches for their inappropriate comments on TV show ‘Koffee with Karan’.
