Chennai: Dismissing a PIL filed by the former CBI director CBI director R.K. Raghavan seeking to restrain the BCCI from effecting any adverse changes in the contribution costs to be shared by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the Madras High Court said, “We do believe, this is not a matter where this court should interfere and more so, in exercise of a public interest litigation jurisdiction.”

The first bench comprising Chief Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice M.M Sundresh said “We do believe that this is really proxy litigation by the TN Cricket Association (TNCA), who, for reasons best known to it, is not coming forward to assail its right, if any, as the member of the BCCI”.

 

“The material is stated to have been made available by the TNCA and the justification given by Vijay Narayan, the senior counsel for petitioners Raghavan and seven others, is that the TNCA, may have its own reasons why it does not seek to challenge the decision taken, but that would not preclude the petitioners from doing so”, the bench said.

In the petition it was submitted that all the members of ICC passed a resolution on February 8, 2014, to pay 21 per cent of revenue earned/to be earned by the ICC for 2015-23 and 2024-31 cycles, to BCCI as contribution costs.
