Continuing with his promise the clean up Indian cricket, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Shashank Manohar has promised complete investigative power to its ombudsman.
Justice AP Shah, who was appointed as the BCCI’s ombudsman, will have complete freedom and authority like any other judicial body. He will deal with conflict of interest and charges of misconduct against board administrators.
“Even with regard to the administrator, the enquiry (should there be complaints of indiscipline, misconduct against him) would be conducted by the ombudsman,” Manohar told.
However, to punish an administrator, the ombudsman would be required to submit his report to the board, as an intermediary cannot remove a board member.
