Taking The BCCI And India’s Cricket Bodies To Court

A major legal victory for cricket accountability, c/o the Kerala Supreme Court:

In a ruling that could have widespread repercussions for cricket administration in India, the Kerala High Court has said the officials of the Kerala Cricket Association (KCA) can be considered public servants, and directed a lower court to continue hearing a complaint alleging misappropriation of funds by the association. The complaint was filed under the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988, which applies only to public servants.

I’m not sure on the legal specifics, but I’m obviously concerned when so many publicly elected officials (e.g. Sharad Pawar, Arun Jaitley) extend their tentacles into cricket administration.

The suit was brought by Rahul Mehra, who has waged this legal campaign for a few years now. Read a great profile of him here.
