Although the BCCI legal team experienced encouraged the appointment of an advert-hoc ombudsman, Rai would like the watch of amicus. Even so, Diana desires COA and office-bearers to be component of the inquiry as the Board CEO’s existence will be perceived as “poor optics”.
It was Edulji’s insistence to request the lawful view that resulted in the suspension pending inquiry for the two players, the two of whom are slated to return to India from Australia early on Sunday. Rai experienced proposed a mere two-match ban as penalty for their opinions.
