BCCI’s new constitution ousts Mumbai Cricket Association as full member

Mumbai, 41-time Ranji Trophy champions, will no longer be considered a Full Member association in accordance with the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) new constitution.

The Committee of Administrators (CoA), appointed by the Supreme Court to carry out the reforms suggested by the Justice Lodha Committee, finalised the new constitution. The new constitution stipulates that only 30 associations will function as controlling bodies for domestic cricket in their respective states. 

These 30 bodies will be Full Members and receive voting rights.  Maharashtra and Gujarat cricket associations were included in the list of Full Members which means that the cricket associations of Mumbai, Vidarbha, Saurashtra and Baroda previously functioning as Full Members will now be considered Associate Members henceforth.
