SC dismisses BCCI plea seeking review of order on conflict of interest

MUMBAI: The Supreme Court has dismissed the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) plea seeking review of its verdict that struck down the controversial amendment that allowed administrators to hold commercial interest in tournaments organised by the board.

The apex court did not find merit in the BCCI’s plea seeking re-examination of its finding. The apex court had described amendment to Rule 6.2.4 as the ‘true villain’ for the conflict of interest plaguing the BCCI.

“We have examined the grounds urged in support of the prayer for review. We find no error apparent on the face of the record to warrant recall of our order dated January 22, 2015. The review petitions are, accordingly, dismissed,” a bench comprising justices TS Thakur and FMI Kalifulla said.

In its order on 22 January, the apex court had settled the matter of conflict of interest once and for all by setting aside the amendments to Clause 6.2.4 which allowed board officials to own teams in the BCCI organised tournaments.
