The Committee of Administrators (CoA) has declared the elections of the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) scheduled to be held on May 2 as null and void.

The CoA declared that the BCCI will treat the MCA as a defaulting state association and shall not recognise the results of such elections.

The CoA has taken the action against MCA as the amended Constitution submitted by the association “substantially deviates from the recommendations of the Hon’ble Justice Lodha Committee as accepted by the Hon’ble Supreme Court vide its judgment dated 18th July 2016 and is not compliant with the same”. The CoA has put all concerned in the MCA on notice, which spells trouble for hon secretary Riyaz Bagwan.

“It appears that the MCA and its officials have falsely claimed compliance with the Judgment, violated the undertaking contained in the affidavit filed before the Hon’ble Supreme Court and left no stone unturned to subvert and nullify the letter and spirit of the recommendations of the Hon’ble Justice Lodha Committee,” said CoA. “Any person(s) involved in the conduct of or participating in the elections shall be held responsible for having wilfully acted in violation of the Judgment and consequent directions issued by the Hon’ble Justice Lodha Committee and the Committee of Administrators shall take such steps/ action as it considers appropriate in this regard including by bringing the same to the attention of the Hon’ble Supreme Court.

Deus ex machina: Two decades apart, India do the unexpected against Aussies

UPDATED ON JAN 20, 2021 04:03 PM IST
India vs Australia: What helped India win this series? There could be many logical answers and yet there could be no answer to it at all. It wasn't meant to happen, it doesn't happen at all. The rarity of such an accomplishment is what makes it surreal and overwhelming. Perhaps like a deus ex machina, that enters a play at the last moment and solves all the problems.
