India court orders BCCI to implement clean-up panel's views

NEW DELHI (AP) India's Supreme Court has ordered the Board of Control for Cricket in India to withhold funding from state cricket bodies until they implement recommendations of a court-appointed committee to clean up the administration of the sport.

A three-man committee headed by Justin Rajendra Lodha was formed in the wake of a spot-fixing scam and alleged conflicts of interest.

The court ruled Friday that state associations must submit affidavits committing to compliance with the Lodha recommendations in order to receive financial distributions from the BCCI.
