The Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) and senior management of the BCCI will have an opportunity to listen to Simon Longstaff, Director of the Sydney based, The Ethics Centre here on Tuesday.

The BCCI’s legal advisor Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas has arranged a lecture at a South Mumbai Hotel. Last October, a team chaired by Longstaff had said in its 145 page review report that Cricket Australia was “arrogant and controlling“ and embracing an ethos of "winning without counting the costs” and that the sports administrators were also to be blamed for the ball-tampering issue that rocked Australia’s tour of South Africa last year. 

The CoA will meet in Mumbai tomorrow to take stock of, among other things, the election process it has initiated for the BCCI AGM on October 22. It will take note of the decision taken to come under the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) for dope testing of its cricketers in domestic tournaments.
