    The hearing of the matter regarding the BCCI not implementing the Lodha Committees recommendations in total, as directed by the Supreme Court, has been rescheduled from December 5 to December 9. It was reported that the Chief Justice of India, TS Thakur, who is part of the bench hearing the issue, was unavailable.The Supreme Court had last heard the case on October 21, when it passed an interim order asking the BCCI to stop disbursing funds to state associations until the association gave a written resolution that it would adopt the Lodha Committees recommendations. BCCI president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke were also required to submit an affidavit of compliance in the court by December 3, elaborating on the recommendations already implemented by the board and the steps taken to persuade the state associations to adopt the recommendations in total.Since the previous hearing, the Lodha Committee submitted its third status report in the Supreme Court and once again recommended that the BCCI and state office bearers who did not meet the eligibility criteria laid out in the recommendations be removed immediately. It also recommended that GK Pillai, the former home secretary in the federal government, be appointed an observer of the BCCI and that he oversee the boards financial transactions.The BCCI, however, remained firm in its stance that it could not force the Lodha Committees recommendations on its state associations, and that a majority vote was needed to pass them. At several board meetings, the states had voiced opposition to most of the Lodha Committees recommendations: in particular, the one-state-one-vote policy, the age cap for office bearers, and the limits on tenure.The Lodha Committee - comprising former Chief Justice of India RM Lodha and retired Supreme Court judges Ashok Bhan and R Raveendran - was formed in January 2015 to determine appropriate punishments for some of the officials involved in the 2013 IPL corruption scandal, and also to propose changes to streamline the BCCI, reform its functioning, prevent sporting fraud and conflict of interest.In January 2016, the committee released its report, which recommended an exhaustive overhaul of the BCCIs governance and administrative structures. On July 18, the Supreme Court approved the majority of the recommendations and directed the Lodha Committee to supervise the BCCIs implementations of the same. However, despite the Lodha Committee laying out timelines and other directives, the board has not cooperated because its state associations objected to the recommendations. Cheap China Jerseys .

CALGARY, Alberta -- The Calgary Flames host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night at the Scotiabank Saddledome in a battle of two well-rested teams.Both the Flames (16-13-2) and Lightning (14-13-2) have enjoyed a break in their schedules since they last played on Saturday night.While the Flames beat the Winnipeg Jets 6-2 at home on Saturday for their sixth straight win, the Lightning dropped a 4-3 decision to the Pittsburgh Penguins in Tampa earlier the same evening.Although the streaking Flames are back in contention, Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan cautioned that his players will have to continue to build on that momentum to stay in the mix in the highly-competitive Pacific Division.We have moved the bar for ourselves in the last month, Gulutzan said. Everybody knows about our start, we dug ourselves a hole and we are starting to get ourselves out of it. Weve got a lot of work to do, but we have a great group.Included in that group is goaltender Chad Johnson, who has gone 9-1-0 in his past 10 starts.Obviously, it starts with (Johnson) back there in the pipes, said center Sean Monahan, who has shrugged off a slow start to his season with the Flames by recording points in seven straight games, which is a career high.Hes giving us that confidence to go out there and work for him. When were getting the chances were putting the puck in the back of the net. I think that comes down to us sticking to our structure and keeping it simple. Thats why were getting our chances.While the Flames are on fire, the same cant be said for the Lightning, who have gone 1-6-1 in its past eight gaames and 4-7-1 since superstar center Steven Stamkos suffered a meniscus tear in his right knee.ddddddddddddAfter enjoying a three-day break from action, Tampa Bay will play three road games in four nights starting with Wednesdays tough test against Calgary. The Lightning will then play the Canucks in Vancouver on Friday before taking on the Oilers in Edmonton the next night.Weve had a little time to practice, Lightning coach Jon Cooper told the Tampa Bay Times on Tuesday. Weve had a little rest. Were going to need that going on the road here especially that were playing three in four nights. I think every team that we play is sitting home waiting for us for a couple of days, so we have to be on our game.Despite the slump his team is in, Cooper said his players have kept up a positive attitude.Nobody wants to be in the situation that were in, but we are in that situation and we have to work our way out just like everybody else, said Cooper.The Lightning recalled right winger Erik Condra and defenseman Slater Koekkoek from the AHLs Syracuse Crunch on Monday. Koekkoek was sent down to the AHL for two games to get some much-needed playing time before being called back up.Hes taking big steps, positive steps every single year, Cooper told the Times. When our D corps finally got healthy, we could afford to play him some games in Syracuse. Hes definitely part of our team. Hes coming with us out west. Our goal is to get him in and getting back helping us. Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
