The Supreme Court has approved the Cricket Association of Bihar (CAB) to go to the BCCI to run and manage cricket in Bihar and to set up an independent ad-hoc committee or supervisory committee. Vikas Mehta, representing the CAB, has said before the apex court that the court should seek BCCI’s response so that the dispute can be resolved.
Earlier, a bench of justices L. Nageswara Rao, Hemant Gupta and Ajay Rastogi had told Mehta that the appellant can approach the right forum if there is a dispute. Mehta had said that the most suitable forum for this is BCCI. CAB secretary Aditya Verma has filed a petition in the apex court on behalf of the board stating that the Bihar Cricket Association (BCA) is caught in the trap of negativity.

He wrote, ‘Every tabga calls its annual general meeting and takes steps against the other, the BCA has not only failed to register itself but it is not even a union that is currently functioning.’
Verma said that cricket has suffered due to BCA internal affairs as players, coaches, selectors and staff of Bihar U-16, 19, 23 have not received their salaries. In 2015, the Supreme Court had constituted a committee under the chairmanship of Judge RM Lodha, which filed its report in January 2016. The apex court had approved the new constitution of the BCCI and asked every member to register its differences. Verma said that the BCA has not registered itself yet.
