Bedi, Kumble, Amarnath depose before Lodha Commission

New Delhi: Former India captains Bishan Singh Bedi and Anil Kumble along with yesteryear’s great Mohinder Amarnath had deposed before the Justice Lodha Committee as they prepare an exhaustive report on the restructuring and reforms that need to be carried by the BCCI.

Bedi said that it was a “wonderful interaction” with the committee members.

“I spoke to the Lodha Committee for close to 90 minutes. It was a wonderful interacting with three eminent gentlemen of such high calibre. I spoke to them on lot of issues pertaining to Indian cricket. But it would not be fair on my part to divulge the details of a private meeting. It is their prerogative. But I am hopeful that things are on right direction,” Bedi told PTI today.

It has been learnt that Kumble and Amarnath has also separately deposed before the committee comprising of Justice (Retd) Lodha, Justice (retd) RV Raveendran and Justice (retd) Ashok Bhan.

It was also learnt that two Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) officials Sunil Kumar Singh and Jittu Patel also met the committee members submitting documents with allegations of financial irregularities and conflict of interest against association president Amitabh Chaudhary.
