Some cricket associations not willing to change

The BCCI constitution has changed and therefore, all the state associations' constitutions also need to be changed. Over there, the state associations are yet to come to terms with the basic things that have happened in the Lodha commission with regards to the constitution changes which include the age bar, tenure bar and the cooling period with the different BCCI officials. At the same time, some of the state associations do not wish to come to these terms. However, the CoA chief Vinod Rai has clearly mentioned that if any association does not fall in the line of compliance with the Supreme Court order and the Lodha Committee commission report then they will be barred to hold the elections which means that the state committee will not get the right to elect the members of the AGM and the elections will not be held as per their wish.
